Call to Worship: Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here’s a call to worship written for worship at a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day celebration (January 16, 2012).  It comes from the Presbyterian Church USA website.

Call to Worship

We gather to worship God,
Who creates us and loves us;
Who gifts us with diversity and makes us for community;
Who gives Jesus Christ to show us how to live;
Who inspires children, youth, young adults, and people of all ages,
To seek justice, share power,
and live together in love and equality;
Who invites us to join the struggle for wholeness and wellbeing for all,
and whose presence, grace, and love
sustain us in our living.
We gather to worship God.
To God be all glory, honor, and praise!
