Call to Worship

One: This morning as we share in this time of worship,
All: we give thanks for God’s faithful love!
One: Listening, waiting, hope-filled compassion:
All: These are the gifts of your Divine presence!
One: Honest confession of our defensiveness and evasion,
All: leads us to examine ourselves with honesty, and to become active advocates for right relations!
