Call to Worship: Matthew 22: 1-14

Here’s a call to worship inspired by Matthew 22: 1-14.  It was written by Rev. Eliza Buchakjian-Tweedy, pastor of the First Church Congregational in Rochester, New Hampshire.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Matthew 22: 1-14)

In the midst of fear and anger;
in the midst of mayhem and destruction, God calls us.
With everything else going on, who has time for a feast? 
We're busy, we'll get around to eating eventually.
In the midst of our anxiety, our worry;
in the midst of bill-paying and appointments, God invites us.
We are tempted to just grab a bite,
a sandwich between errands,
a snack we can eat while driving, or checking email,
or working on today's big project.
The feast is spread!
All are invited, all are welcome!
We are invited.  We are welcome.  We are worthy. 
How will we respond?
