CALL TO WORSHIP
Though many places in the world are bound in war.
The peace of God is poured out for all people.
Though discord and struggle have become factors in the lives of the people.
The love of God is lavished on all people.
Let us praise the God of love and peace.
Let us listen for God’s words of peace and justice for all people. AMEN.
God of majesty and power, how awesome you are to us!
The mountains tremble, the seas roar at the sound of your name! Yet you have chosen to come to us in love and tenderness.
You have called us to be people who will act in ways of peace and justice in your world. Open our hearts and our spirits, Lord, to hear your word, and having heard, to act in ministries of hope and peace for all your earth.
These things we pray in Jesus’ Name. AMEN.
