Call to Worship

'Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, daughter of Jerusalem! 

See, your king comes to you; righteous and having salvation, gentle and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

A message for Palm Sunday

A Franciscan Prayer of Blessing 

 

May God bless us with discomfort 

Discomfort at easy answers, half-truths and superficial relationships, so that we may live deep within our hearts.

 

May God bless us with anger 

Anger at injustice, oppression, exploitation and people, so that we may work for justice, freedom and peace.

 

May God bless us with tears 

Tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection, hunger and war, so that we may reach out our hands to comfort them and turn their pain into joy.

 

And may God bless us with foolishness 

Enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done.

 

May this blessing move us from worship to weeklong works of mercy and justice:    

In Jesus’ name,

Amen
