Dr. Everett Worthington, Jr.
Would you join me in a prayer?
Dear Lord, in life, all of us are dropped and damaged by others. Sometimes, we simply disappoint ourselves and others, make bad decisions, and are not the people that we hope we could be. We would be lost if you were not a loving, merciful, and forgiving God. You forgive and you help us forgive. We cannot do it alone. Be with us as we think about your Word, that we will not just hear it, but that it will change us. Amen.

The Rev. Elizabeth Goodman
In her sermon for the 5th Sunday in Lent, the Rev. Liz Goodman focuses on a phrase that appears several times in John's gospel: "Come and See." This time, Mary and Martha invite Jesus to "come and see" where their brother Lazarus was buried. We too can offer this invitation to others in our circles to come and see God at work.

The Rev. Scott Seeke
As we see in the story of Samuel's anointing of David as King of Israel, God's criteria for God's servants may not line up with our own--which, Scott Seeke tells us, means God may even use us.
