Death Swallowed in Life

(Mark 12:26-27a)

Call to Worship:
The Steadfast love of the Lord never ceases

His mercies never come to an end

They are new every morning

Let us praise the faithfulness of the Lord our God.

Prayer of Confession: Lord we confess that we do not want to die. Death is scary, it means missing people and it means change. Walk with us, we pray. When death seems near, hold our hand. When we feel like giving up, strengthen us to live fully into ourselves for as long as we have on earth we pray. Amen.

Assurance of Pardon: Hear the Good news: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to the end. Hear the good news: In Jesus Christ we are forgiven.
