Scripture Cuttings:
Jeremiah 31:31-34 No longer shall they teach one another, or say to each other, "Know the Lord," for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, says the Lord; for I will forgive their iniquity, and remember their sin no more.
Psalm 119:9-16 Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes. With my lips I declare all the ordinances of your mouth.
Hebrews 5:5-10 Although he was a Son, he learned obedience through what he suffered; and having been made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.
John 12:20-33 "Now my soul is troubled. And what should I say—'Father, save me from this hour'? No, it is for this reason that I have come to this hour. Father, glorify your name."

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:  The Lord desires a new covenant with the people of God.
Let us open our hearts and minds. (pause to create a blank slate for God to write upon)
  Lord God...
C: we do not contemplate the depth of your humility on the cross,
  because it would cause us to contemplate our lack of depth.
We are unprepared for the magnitude of your glory,
  because we are so attached to our life in this world.
We are comfortable giving you some
  of our time and possessions this morning,
    but we would prefer that you not write your law on our hearts.
Save us, save us, Lord from the sins we know,
Save us, save us, from the sins we hide. (pause for reflection and self-examination)
P:  The Lord desires to forgive our iniquity and remember our sin no more. God the heavenly Father wants this badly enough to lift up his only begotten Son. To lift him up on a cross and to lift him up in a resurrection from the dead. Because of Jesus Christ’s reverent submission, he has become the source of eternal salvation and will draw all people to himself. (For Christ's sake our sins are forgiven). By the power of the Holy Spirit we too are drawn to this God who would write upon our hearts. In the name of the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen. -wjw
