CALL TO WORSHIP

Written by Dr. Lisa Hancock, Discipleship Ministries, February 2024.

ONE: God, sometimes we show up to worship ready to encounter your presence.

ALL: We know you are always with us.

ONE: Sometimes we catch glimpses of you at home, work, or school—in a smile, in a gentle

breeze, in the joy of being together.

ALL: We know you are always with us.

ONE: But God, we hesitate to encounter you in all of your glory, afraid to be overwhelmed

by your love and holiness.

ALL: And yet, we know you are always with us in the fullness of your glory.

ONE: Ready our hearts today to encounter more of your glory, your love, holiness, and

glory that is always present with us.

ALL: We come today to enter the dance of the all-consuming presence of the

Trinity—Creator, Christ, and Holy Spirit. Amen.

PRAYER OF DEDICATION (Liturgist Only) *Gwendolyn Brooks

It is no small thing, this work of mutuality. It is unlearning what we have been taught of

individualism and competition. And yet, it unfolds in small ways—a meal, a ride, a place

to stay, a compassionate word. The wisdom that your struggle is my struggle. You

children are mine. We are each other’s harvest; we are each other’s business; we are

each other’s magnitude and bond.* Thanks be to God. Amen.
