Call to Worship

We have entered a sacred place on this holy day
            expecting God to reveal himself to us in a fresh
                        and marvelous way.

            We bring the fragility of our lives and ask for healing.

            We bring our shortcomings and our failures
                        and ask for forgiveness.

            We bring our strengths and weaknesses
                        and ask for blessing.

We come committing our minds,
            our hearts,
                        our souls
                                    to the indwelling of God’s spirit.

            We yield ourselves to the sacred intention
                        of this hour.

As we gaze upward at the octagonal lights of this sanctuary,
            we desire the fullness of the light
                        we know to be God
                                    to shine upon us,
                                                to shine through us
                        illuminating the worlds in which we live.

And now at the chiming of the hour, we give ourselves
            wholly and completely to the worship of the one
                        who gives us life,
                                    who gives us being.
