O Lord, throughout these forty days
You prayed and kept the fast;
Inspire repentance for our sin,
And free us from our past.
Be with us through this season, Lord,
And all our earthly days,
That when the final Easter dawns,
We join in heaven's praise.
TLH 418:1 and 4
We start a Lenten series on Jonah tonight. The pastors are going to rotate churches in our circuit, but write a new sermon each week so it goes in order for the members. I will go to our tri-parish churches some weeks and go with Ram other weeks. Tonight Ram is at our church next door.
I rejoice that there is communion tonight so we can with the angels and archangels and with all the company of heaven (including Aunt Alice and my Grandmas), laud and magnify His glorious name.
