Return to the Lord, Your God, For he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and relents from punishing. OPENING HYMN: “Jesus Walked this Lonesome Valley” #2112 TFWS
OPENING PRAYER A wilderness beckons us; a desert, a barren place, yet a place of blessing and discovery. Jesus, steady companion, accompany us, as we enter the hurtful places, the frightening places, the dangerous places deep within us. Jesus, our wise and well-traveled guide, lead us into this emptiness, where all will fall away, and we will have nothing but you. Walk with us through the valley of the shadow of death, where we shall be raised, and drink of deep springs. Amen.
