Choral Music: The Peace of Wild Things Words: Wendell Berry. Music: Malcolm Dalglish When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free. + silence +

God our Creator, you have formed us out of the dust of the earth. May these ashes be to us a sign of our mortality, repentance and renewal: a humble remembrance of our life in you, and our relationship with your creation; a witness to the Way of Jesus in your world and your promise of a new creation. Guide us on our Lenten journey, we pray, and kindle in us the fire of your Love. Amen.
