CALL TO WORSHIP
Jesus tells us, “you know the way to the place where I am going.”
Like Thomas, we have questions. “Lord we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?”
Jesus tells us what we already know, “I AM the way, and the truth, and the life.”
Let us worship the one who prepares for us and guides our way.
To God be the Glory
CALL TO CONFESSION AND PRAYER OF CONFESSION
As many times as you tell us not to let our hearts be troubled, Jesus, our hearts are.
As many times as you tell us “I AM WHO I AM,” we choose not to believe you.
As many times as you tell us you are the way, we look to make our own way.
Let us bring our troubles to you. Let us listen and believe you. Let us find our way in your way, your truth, and your life. Amen.

The Call from “Five Mystical Songs” by Ralph Vaughan Williams
Bob Snead, Baritone
Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life: Such a Way, as gives us breath: Such a Truth, as ends all strife: Such a life, as killeth death. Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength: Such a Light, as shows a feast: Such a Feast, as men ds in length: Such a Strength, as makes his guest. Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart: Such a Joy, as none can move: Such a Love, as none can part: Such a Heart, as joys in love. - George Herbert, 1633
