Call To Worship • Jesus’ Burial

When I preached on Jesus’ burial, I wrote this liturgy to open worship. I’m not sure if would work well if you were doing a Service of Tenebrae with the whole Passion Narrative, but it would work well for Good Friday – or even adapted to say, “Today we remember the last moments of Jesus’ life – and like Joseph of Arimathea, who wrapped Jesus in a linen cloth after he died,” etc.

Call To Worship • Jesus’ Burial
Rev. Sarah Weaver

Watch.
Wait.
Prepare.
Hope.
Love.
Believe.
Today we remember the burial of Jesus.
     Like Joseph of Arimathea,
          who wrapped Jesus in a linen cloth
          and laid him carefully in a tomb,
     we will take the same care and compassion
          as we tell the story
          and wait for resurrection.
Together we wait.
Together we worship.
Let us worship God.
