Call to Worship
The foolish say, 'there is no God.'
We come, trusting in Jesus, the face, the voice, the presence
of the God who loves us.
The scoffers of our age ask, 'why do you seek after God?'
We come, in this time, because God's grace has spilled over
in our lives.
The hopeless around us think, 'no one cares about me.'
We come, in this time, to this place, because Jesus has found
us and brought us home.
God of abundant grace, may your Holy Spirit be with us
now as we worship you this day.
Open our eyes to truly see one another, that we might
discover your presence in the smile of a neighbor.
Open our ears to the needs of the world, that we might hear
your wisdom in the words spoken around us.
And open our hearts to your grace and love, that we might
find guidance and strength for the journey, for ourselves
and for one another. Amen.
