Holy Communion – Fifth Sunday in Lent – April 3, 2022

Lord, You tell us that You are making ‘all things new,’ yet at times we fear the changes You have called us to make or find it hard to trust You as things change in our lives. Remind us that you never abandon us. Remind us that repentance is not merely stopping sin or halting of that which is not pleasing in God’s sight. Repentance also carries the idea of turning around in a new direction. Help us to go in the directions You lead us and become who You have created us to be. Amen.
