Service of WorshipFourth Sunday in LentMarch 10, 2013Eleven o’clock in the morning Keeping the heart of the University listening to the heart of God “The Return of the Prodigal Son,” by Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, c. 1669.The Fourth Sunday in Lent is traditionally known as Refreshment Sunday(some traditions refer to it as Laetare Sunday, which is Latin for rejoice).Refreshment Sunday marks the transition from the penitence of the earlyweeks of Lent to the taking up of the way of the cross in the later weeks.The letter to the church in Corinth emphasizes the newness of creation:“everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” Theparable of the prodigal son in Luke reveals the depth of God’s lavish grace,even in the face of human rebellion and disobedience.
At the close of today’s service, the Lord’s Supper will be celebratedin the Memorial Chapel located to the left of the chancel.Immediately following the Lord’s Supper, a service of prayer for healingwill be held. The service consists of prayers for healing and wholeness,with anointing and laying on of hands. All are invited.The congregation is asked to remain silentduring the prelude as a time of prayer and meditation.GatheringCarillonChoral PreludeKyrieJabula JesuDeo dicamus gratiasNothin’ Gonna Stumble My FeetPie Jesu (from Requiem)Audrey Snyder(b. 1953)Traditional Zulu Melodyarr.
