Special Music by Choir: Upon this Rock
Lenten count: two. Suggested scripture – Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12. Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help. Again, if two lie together, they keep warm; but how can one keep warm alone? And though one might prevail against another, two will withstand one. A threefold cord is not quickly broken.
Song by Shania Twain ‘Party for Two.’
