Adult Spiritual Formation - 9:00 am
You're invited to Spiritual Formation, in person in the Shadow Rock Multipurpose Room and on Zoom. All are welcome, and all of YOU is welcome! We are continuing our Lenten series this morning on church trauma and healing, with an emphasis on fear-based theology. This same content and discussion (with more reflection and quiet) is available Wednesday evenings in Lent at 7:00 pm on Zoom.
Worship Begins - 10:15 am
Welcome and Announcements ~ Pastor Ken
As worship begins, we pause to welcome and extend greetings to anyone visiting us this week! No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.
Stay tuned to Shadow Rock news with Rock the Week, our Wednesday email newsletter.
One: Author of abundance, God of change, we come into this hour with holy expectations.
All: As we travel on our journey of transformation this Lenten season, we know that you are with us. You walk beside us. Your presence surrounds us.
One: Help us to bear fruit as we walk this road. Remind us that you have prepared a feast for us when all can come and eat.
All: Keep us forever in the path as we worship you in spirit and in truth. Amen.
Opening Prayer and Meditation
Singing Our Faith ~ "Walls Mark Our Boundaries"
Walls mark our bound’ries and keep us apart;
Walls keep the world from our eyes and our heart.
Tables are round, making room for one more,
Welcoming friends we had not known before.
So build us a table and tear down the wall!
Christ is our host. There is room for us all!
Walls make us sure who is in and who’s out
Walls keep us safe from all question and doubt,
But at a table in open exchange
New ties are formed as our lives rearrange.
Once we were strangers, divided, alone.
Hate and distrust built a wall stone by stone.
Now at a table the bread that we share,
Joins us to Christ in a circle of care.
