Instrumental Prelude: O Sacred Head, Now Wounded click here
Call to Worship: Today God makes common cause with our human suffering. We read the Scriptures, sing the hymns, feel the feelings of the day Christ died. Suffering is not rational. It has no answer. But in the cross God meets us in our suffering. From this day forward we know that there is nowhere we can go where God is not with us.
Scripture: The Passion of Christ as told in the Gospel of Mark.

Sending: May the Christ who walks on wounded feet walk with you on the road. May the Christ who serves with wounded hands stretch out your hands to serve. May the Christ who loves with a wounded heart open your hearts to love. May you see the face of Christ in everyone you meet, and may everyone you meet see the face of Christ in you. Amen.
