Call to Worship, Responsive — Thandiwe Dale-Ferguson

Adapted from Ana Gobledale’s “Call to Worship” inspired by Psalm 16:9 and Gerardo Oberman’s “Opening Prayer” – both found on Worship Words.

 

Come! Rejoice! For the Holy One is here.

We stand on holy ground.

Come, children of God! Just as you are.

Receive God’s grace, hope, courage and sustaining love.

We come to be nourished by God’s Word.

Come! Listen. For God is still speaking.

We come to hear the Spirit’s call.

Come! As Jesus our teacher came: with open hands and open hearts.

We come with rejoicing.

To love and to serve wherever God calls us.

Come! Let us sing our praises.
