Rev. Sharon Gardner:
So, we come to our second Sunday of finding new ways to worship in these strange and uncertain times and welcome to our service today. Maybe you’ll be joining in from the comfort of your beds – and why not?! - or over your breakfast. However and wherever you find yourselves, I pray that you will feel blessed by God today.
The lectionary Psalm for this 5th Sunday in Lent is Psalm 130 which seems particularly pertinent.
The Passion Translation calls it 'A song of the stairway' (i.e. the stairs up to the Temple)
Very appropriate for the times we find ourselves in...

Blessing: from www.methodistchurch.org.uk worship during coronavirus:
May you know the deep peace of the God
who knows and perfectly loves you.
May you take the yoke of Jesus upon you,
knowing that he bears your load with you.
May you know the indwelling Spirit
bringing you wisdom and peace.
