3rd Sunday of Easter


Call to Worship

One: We live enveloped by the Spirt,
All: immersed in love.
One: We need not look up to find God; we need only look around:
All: within ourselves, beyond ourselves, into the eyes of another.
One: We need not seek the miraculous to find God, we need only listen for:
All: the music of life, the words of children, the questions of the curious, the rhythm of a heartbeat.
One: We live enveloped by the Spirt,
All: immersed in love.
