Call to Worship (based on Luke 3:15-17, 21-22)

People filled with expectation
People questioning in their hearts
People eager to hear good news
People longing for God’s time
We, too, are those people
We, too, come together,
with expectation, with questions, with eagerness, with longing
We, too, have heard – heard about something going on –
Something is going on
Let us worship God!
