Epiphany Call to Worship: Luke 2

Here’s a call to worship based on events in Luke 2, and suitable for use on the first Sunday after Christmas. It was written by a group of writers from the United Church of Christ.

Call to Worship

Leader:             When Jesus is born to Mary and Joseph,
People:            God is there.

Leader:             When Jesus is presented at the temple,
People:            God is there.

Leader:             When Simeon holds Jesus in his arms,
People:            God is there.

Leader:             When Anna recognizes Jesus in the temple,
People:            God is there.

Leader:             This very morning,
People:            God is here.

Leader:             In the future we cannot see,
People:            God is there.

All:                   Let us worship God!
