Call to Worship (based on Luke 2:41-52)

Don’t we know …
This is a place for surprise, a place for the unexpected.
This is a place for finding what is lost, or what is sought.
This is a place for hearing and learning anew.
This is a place for a sigh of relief, the end of a journey …
or the beginning of one …
Come to this place, find and be found, in surprise and joy.
Come, let us worship God!
