Called to serve
This Lent, as we continue to grow and change as a diocese, we are invited to reflect on our calling to serve God. Our 2015 Lent reflections, Called to serve, encourage us to explore the vital question: ‘What is God calling me to do and to be during the next part of my life?’ The core booklet, available across the diocese at the beginning of Lent and downloadable here, contains Gospel readings, questions for reflection and specially written prayers for each week of Lent. Those leading worship or children and youth activities can also use accompanying resources, including sermon ideas, all age worship resources, and outline sessions for ministry with children, young people and families – all focused on the weekly Called to serve themes. Download all of the material here.
Accompanying resources for leaders
Most holy and gracious God, you have drawn me through the waters of baptism into a new life with Christ, your Son. At the beginning of this Lenten season, I pray that through these weeks I will hear your still, small voice speaking into my heart, that I will reflect upon my faith and ministry, and that I will seek out new ways of serving in your name; through Jesus Christ, who in love died and rose again. Amen.
