An Existential Search, Call to worship — William Stephenson, USA

As we prepare for worship
we seek
a fresh breath of life into our being
and a renewal of spirit into our souls.

As we prepare for worship
we look
and long for
a new season of serenity.

We have
come to see how the chaos in this world
and the conflicts in our own lives
are connected to each other
and often congruent.

We struggle
by hugging our hurts
and helping our hopelessness,
fighting the temptation to turn
toward those around us,
blaming them for all
we are feeling within ourselves.

As we prepare for worship
we seek
a vessel that will carry us
to a compassionate and caring place
we cannot find alone.

Our hearts
hungers for hope.
