Call to Worship (based on Luke 2)

The grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all!
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light!
Emmanuel is born, God with us, the Word made flesh!
We echo the songs of angels and the rejoicing of shepherds:
Glory to God in the highest! On earth, peace to all people!
Let us worship God!
