Advent Call to Worship: God Comes!


Here’s a contemporary call to worship inspired by the suggested scripture readings for the third Sunday of Advent (Year C).  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Advent Call to Worship
(inspired by Zephaniah 3: 14-20, Isaiah 12: 2-6, Philippians 4: 4-7)

God comes! So don't let go
of all the reasons to rejoice.
We will sing a song of Advent
to the One who fills our lives with joy.

God comes! So don't stop
lifting your prayers with thanksgiving.
We will sing a song of Advent,
to the One who hears our words and silence.


God comes! So don't stop
giving your hearts to God.
We will sing a song of Advent
to the One who graces us with a peace
we cannot begin to understand.
