Advent Call to Worship
Throughout the generations
God has sent the message of peace and reconciliation
in the words of the prophets,
in acted parable,
God has revealed a loving intent towards men and women.
Finally, in due time, God sent Jesus into the world
to demonstrate in human terms God’s way of living and loving.
So today we come to prepare our hearts and minds once more
to receive the Gospel of hope and healing.
In this place we are invited to open ourselves to the Spirit of God.
to prepare a place for God in our lives.
Come then, let us worship God. Amen.
