Call to Worship: Matthew 25: 31-46


Here’s a call to worship based on Matthew 25:31-46. It was written by Thom Shuman.

Call to Worship
(based on Matthew 25: 31-46)

We come, for God gathers us here,
with that community called faith:
where the hungry are served first,
where the thirsty drink life's water.

We come, for God welcomes us here
into that home called grace:
where the naked are clothed in robes of hope;
where the stranger is embraced as the long-lost prodigal.

We come, for God reunites us here,
sisters and brothers in that family called love:
where the imprisoned model justice,
where the sick are cradled in God's peace.
