Lent: Closing
May the Christ who walks on wounded feet
    walk with you on the road.
May the Christ who serves with wounded hands
    stretch out your hands to serve.
May the Christ who loves with a wounded heart
    open your hearts to love.
May you see the face of Christ in everyone you meet,
    and may everyone you meet see the face of Christ in you. Amen.

Good Friday: Offertory Prayer
God of the Crucified Jesus, we are struck on this Good Friday by the brutal reality that Jesus knowingly, willingly, and obedienetly gave up his earthly life on a cross. He offered the ultimate sacrifice at Golgatha, the Place of the Skull, so that we may be redeemed by his blood. We now humbly give our financial resources. These monetary gifts are a mere gesture of sacrifice in comparison to Jesus' sacrifce. Yet, we give with the hope of being washed in his blood. Amen.

Easter: Opening Response
Christ is risen from the dead,
   Trampling down death by death,
    And to those in the tombs restoring life!
Christ is risen from the dead,
   Trampling down death by death,
    And to those in the tombs restoring life!
Alleluia! The risen Christ is with us!
Thanks be to God! Alleluia!
