Full to the Brim: A Cup of Sorrow

The service begins in silence.  

*CALL TO WORSHIP

L:           Let us remember

All:        how the sky went dark

HYMN— “In Deepest Night,” ELW #699  

*PRAYER OF ILLUMINATION

L: God who asked for a drink, God who was killed by the state, God who offered love and grace even from the cross—we are at a loss for words. What do we do with this day? The air is heavy. Our hearts are heavy. The suffering of this world feels particularly close, spilling out all over us. And yet, even in this space, we know you are moving. Even in this space, we know that this is not the end. Give us the heart to hear this story and the courage to let it change us. Gratefully we pray,

All: Amen.
