call to worship

Come. . .

 March 31, 2009

Today I led the call to worship for our chapel service at Gardner-Webb Divinity School. As I prayed this week about what I would say, I kept coming back to the wonder that Almighty God calls out to me. In response, I am to come out of myself, away from my busyness, and into God's rest. I'm ashamed I don't always answer that call. Yet amazingly, God still calls.

 

A Call to Worship

Come.

Now is the time.

Answer the call to worship.

Come.

You who are broken, burdened, bereaved.

Come.

Come out of frenzied chaos and

Into sacred peace.

Come.

Come out of the mundane and

Into the magnificent.

Come.

Come out of the pressure of the daily and

Into the presence of the divine.

Come.

Come because you are called.

Called to worship.
