Listen to the Sermon.
O God, whose glory it is always to have mercy: Be gracious to all of us who have gone astray from your ways, and bring us again with penitent hearts and steadfast faith to embrace and hold fast to the unchangeable truth of your Word, Jesus Christ your Son. (Collect for 2 Lent)
The Invitation to a Holy Lent, which we read on Ash Wednesday, focuses us on these 6 ½ weeks as a time to return to God, from wherever we have strayed. And our prayer for this week reminds us that God’s promise to us is grace and mercy when we return from our wanderings and times of separation from God.
