Call to Worship [Based on James 1:17-27]
God’s good gifts surround us:
the world, and all that is in it;
sky and clouds, trees and birds,
fields and gardens, brilliant summer flowers,
each person we meet,
each child of God.
God’s truth, God’s word,
calls each of us
into God’s goodness, into life.
God, the beginning of light,
dwells in light,
lights the way,
is the way.
Come, see, live!
Come, worship God!
Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.James 1:17
