A Call to Worship (based on Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22)
Let us give thanks loudly and joyfully
From every direction, in gratitude
For light instead of darkness,
For healing and wholeness instead of sickness and despair,
For purpose and peace instead of empty passions and perfectionism,
For redemption, for homecoming, for life abundant!
Let us worship God!
O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.Psalm 107:1-3, 17-22
Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, those he redeemed from trouble
and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.
Some were sick through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities endured affliction;
they loathed any kind of food, and they drew near to the gates of death.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress;
he sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.
And let them offer thanksgiving sacrifices, and tell of his deeds with songs of joy.
