CALL TO WORSHIP

ONE: Welcome! Though we are apart this morning, this is still a time to celebrate and worship the Divine Presence that offers us love.

MANY: May we be grateful and thankful for all God’s blessings in our lives.

ONE: We gather, called into a community drawn by a vision of a Loving Kin-dom.

MANY: May we turn toward that Kin-dom as a flower seeks the sun.

ONE: In whatever we do this day, and each day, may we do so as an act of love and hope.

MANY: We strive to make God’s spirit present in all times and places.
