Call to Worship: Micah 6: 1-8

Here’s a call to worship (or, with a bit of reworking, closing words!) inspired by Micah 6: 1-8.  It was written by Mary Jo Bowman.

Call to Worship
(based on Micah 6: 1-8)

Children of God,
It's time to take off your shoes,
Step out of your comfort zone, and
Wade with trust into the stream of God's mercy.
Stand still for a moment, barefoot, on holy ground.
Let the healing waters wash your feet.
Take a deep breath as Love soaks into your soul.
Be silent and listen for God's word to us today.

Read Micah 6:6-8

How shall we worship our God?
We have heard what the Lord requires of us.
Leave empty talk and pride behind.
We must walk the walk.
Prepare to step out in faith, even into troubled waters.
Only God knows where we might need to go.
Don't be afraid.
Jesus will guide our steps along the way,
Teaching us to walk humbly,
To love boldly,
To serve God with body, soul, mind, and strength.
Let us pray for the humility and courage
To follow where the Spirit leads.
