Invocation / Opening Prayer for Lent 3
Gracious and all mighty God,
Let this holy season continue to be a time of grace
for us and all the world.
Teach us to number our days aright,
that we may gain wisdom of heart.
Turn to us, Lord God,
and we shall turn to you. Amen.

Canticle of Praise over God's Faithful Provisions
(from the Jewish tradition)

We will be one with the praise songs of all peoples.
Praise God, for he restores the earth to its goodness.
Praise God for he restores humanity to themselves.
Praise God all ye nations! Sing praises unto Him all ye peoples.
For the faithfulness of the Lord has been mighty with us.
And the truth of the Lord is forever. Hallelujah. Amen.

Sermon Sampler:

Made Holy by God’s Presence
a sermon based on John 4:5-42
By Rev. Randy Quinn

I must confess that I was puzzled at first by the detailed description of the place where this story occurs, as if that were more important than the people in the story. It reminded me of what Realtors say, “Everything depends upon three things: location, location, location.”

For some reason, John believes that where this story takes place is much more important than the name of the woman at the well.
