Call to Worship
With thirsty souls and bodies longing for the lifting of spirit
we seek out the Lord.
that we might leave the cynicism and emptiness
of the world around
and find an embrace of hope.
In this sanctuary,
in the loftiness of hilltops,
in the solitude of a beach,
in the speckled touch of rainfall,
in the caress of sunshine.
in the whisper of the wind,
and the thunder of the storm,
we have met the glory of the Lord
and know that all encompassing love
to cause our lips
to spill with praise,
and our souls to be filled to bursting.
In the long watches of the night,
let us remember the Lord,
who brings us into the shelter of the heavenly shadow
that we may be upheld
in the passions of our lives.
