Call to Worship [Based on Jeremiah 23:1-6]
Come, let us gather together!
Come follow the voice of wisdom!
Come follow the voice of justice and righteousness!
Leave fear of unworthiness behind –
Leave dismay at inadequacy far away –
The HOLY ONE is our righteousness!
Praise the God of compassion!
Give thanks to the God who gathers us in!
Let us worship God!
… they shall not fear any longer, or be dismayed,Jeremiah 23:4
nor shall any be missing, says the HOLY ONE.
