Advent wreath, one candle lit

First Sunday of Advent (A)

Call to Worship based on Isaiah 2:1-5

We are looking for the mountain of the HOLY GOD;
We are listening for instruction, the Word of the HOLY ONE;
We are hungry and thirsty for peace,
Tired of learning war.
Make our way clear, our steps sure.
Let us begin the trek here, now!
Let us worship God!

He shall judge between the nations
    and shall arbitrate for many peoples;
they shall beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks;
nation shall not lift up sword against nation;
    neither shall they learn war any more.

Isaiah 2:4
