 One: The story of faith is a story of courage.
All: It took courage for John the Baptist to prepare the way.
One: It took courage for Mary to say, “Here I am. Use me.”
All: It took courage for the disciples to drop their nets and follow Jesus.
One: It took courage for the paralyzed man’s friends to lower him through the roof.
All: It took courage for Peter to walk on water.
One: It took courage for Zacchaeus to give half of his possessions to the poor.
All: It took courage for Jesus to enter Jerusalem on a donkey.
One: Faith has never been easy. It is a journey of courage.
All: Again and again, God, show us the way.

Lord's Prayer


"Hymn of Promise"
Scripture:  Mark 11:1-11
Lea Rike

When Jesus and his followers approached Jerusalem, they came to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives. Jesus gave two disciples a task, saying to them, “Go into the village over there. As soon as you enter it, you will find tied up there a colt that no one has ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone says to you, ‘Why are you doing this?’ say, ‘Its master needs it, and he will send it back right away.’”

They went and found a colt tied to a gate outside on the street, and they untied it. Some people standing around said to them, “What are you doing, untying the colt?” They told them just what Jesus said, and they left them alone. They brought the colt to Jesus and threw their clothes upon it, and he sat on it. Many people spread out their clothes on the road while others spread branches cut from the fields. Those in front of him and those following were shouting, “Hosanna! Blessings on the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessings on the coming kingdom of our ancestor David! Hosanna in the highest!” Jesus entered Jerusalem and went into the temple. After he looked around at everything, because it was already late in the evening, he returned to Bethany with the Twelve.

"Again and Again: We Draw On Courage"
