Call to Worship [based on Revelation 1:4b-8]

Turning towards the Eternal –
The One who was, and who is, and who is to come –
Hearing of grace and peace –
    the grace of compassion and forgiveness,
    the peace of reconciliation –

Feeling the pull of faithfulness –
    the faithfulness of the Beloved –
Looking with the eyes of the Spirit –
    looking towards the One who is Alpha and Omega,
    Light before Light, Life beyond Life,

Opening to the splendor of Truth,
the wonder of New Creation –
Let us worship the Almighty! Let us worship God!
