Call to Worship

One: We come with praise for the wonderful works of God.
All: Even before we speak, God knows us completely.
One: The Holy One knows us and sustains us, even in our moments of confusion and doubt.
All: Who can count the thoughts of God? They are more than all the sands of the desert.
One: Like clay in the hand of the potter, we are shaped into vessels of love.
All: We come with praise for the wonderful works of God.
