Epistle: Philippians 3:4b-14
Gospel: John 12:1-8
Holy Sustainer, you were ever in and with Jesus on his journey to Jerusalem, guiding his choices and strengthening his courage each step of the way. As your beloved children, be with us and strengthen us on our journeys. Through our time of worship and our companionship with one another, teach us to recognize Christ in everyone we meet. Help us offer holy hospitality wherever it is needed, and free us from our fears of scarcity, that we may share from our abundance and be a blessing for others. Amen.
