Call to Worship: Finding Life

(based on Matthew 16:25 and Mark 8:35)
 
Those who want to save their lives
have good health insurance,
pay their bills on time,
exercise and eat right.
Those who want to save their lives
will lose them.
 
Those who lose their lives
in pursuit of God
who abandon the world's values,
who live generously and faithfully,
who listen to a voice beyond.
Those who lose their lives
in pursuit of God
will find life.
 
May we learn the value of loss.
May we know the value of life.
Amen.
