“Not as I will, but as you will,” Jesus prayed to his Father the night before he went to the cross for our salvation. And that is our prayer as well this Lent as we seek to do God’s will in our lives, as we draw near to the observance of Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection during Holy Week.
Written by Rev. Justin Rossow, each service in the series focuses on a different aspect of God’s will at work among us. Biblical characters are used as insightful reference points each week to guide us in following our Lord more nearly day by day.
For each service, the kit contains sample bulletins with complete orders of service, monolog sermons (in character role) or outlines for a regular sermon, children’s message, prayers, and music for the accompanist.
