Call to Worship for the First Sunday of Advent

Here’s a call to worship for the first Sunday of Advent from Bruce Prewer.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Isaiah 2: 1-5)

May the joy of the advent season
with its message of mighty hope be with you all!
And also with you!

We begin Advent by celebrating the expectation that the Christ who came,
who comes again to be with us in every age and every place,
and who will come again in a glorious finality
to consummate the healing work which he began at Bethlehem.

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