“Come! Come! Everybody Worship”

*Call to Worship                                                                     

Leader:   Rich or poor, in spirit or wealth;

All:         Healthy or ill, in body or soul;

Right:    Satisfied or hungry, in heart or mind;

Left:      We come to cool our tongues with the living water of Christ;

Leader:   We come to lay our world-weariness in the heart of God;

All:         We come having heard from the prophets;

Right:    We come having learned from the Christ;

Left:      We come believing he rose from the dead;

Leader:   We come convinced God is merciful to the repentant;

All:         We come — believers, seekers and the curious —

Right:    Hoping to feel the warm welcoming of God,

Left:      Hoping to hear the words of hope,

All:         And be touched by love eternal.  Amen.

*Invocation                           

Leader:   God of the people and of the prophets,

              God of the pious and of the impolite,
God of the foolish and of the wise,
God of the desperate and of the arrogant,
God of the humble and of the bold,
God of the lonely, lost and mourning,
God of the joyous, stable and persistent,

People:  We are here now, be here with us,

              Be here in us, be here among us,

              Be here, where we are.  Amen.
