Scripture Cuttings:
Isaiah 40:21-31 Have you not known? Have you not heard? …but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
Psalm 147:1-11, 20c His delight is not in the strength of the horse, nor his pleasure in the speed of a runner; but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.
1 Corinthians 9:16-23 If I proclaim the gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting, for an obligation is laid on me, and woe to me if I do not proclaim the gospel!
Mark 1:29-39 "Let us go on to the neighboring towns, so that I may proclaim the message there also; for that is what I came out to do." And he went throughout Galilee, proclaiming the message in their synagogues and casting out demons.

All may make the sign of the cross in remembrance of baptism
as the presiding minister begins:
P:  In the Name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen

P:  Have we forgotten that our creator is still God,
creating God even for the living of our lives? (silence is kept to listen)
C: we are so influenced by the world we make,
  that your ways have become a mystery to us.
We think because we have heard of your love,
  we are entitled to your protection in all our schemes.
We do not seek you in what you come to do,
  rather what you would do for me.
We want cures for our smallest ills,
  but when are we caught listening in the act of prayer?
Save us Lord from the sins we know,
save us Lord from the sins we hide.
 (pause for reflection and self-examination)
P:  The gospel, the good news, to be proclaimed for all is this:
God’s creating love for us is fulfilled in God’s own Son Jesus Christ. For Christ’s sake our sins are forgiven. We are freed from the burden of our sin and our broken faith with God. Through the power of the Holy Spirit our response to this grace and freedom may be service in the name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen -wjw

P:  The peace of the Lord be with you always!

C: And also with you!
