A Maundy Thursday Call to Worship

Here’s a call to worship for Maundy (Holy) Thursday worship from the Seekers Church website.

Call to Worship Litany: Maundy Thursday

Welcome to you who call upon the name of Christ. 
We gather tonight to recall the story
of the night Jesus was betrayed. 
Are you prepared
to come to the feast of Jesus, the Christ,
whose life was poured out for you?
By the grace of God, we are.

Are you able to watch with Jesus
at prayer in the garden --
indeed, to struggle yourselves to be in unity
with God's will for you?
By the grace of God, we are.

Then let us praise God, even in this hour of darkness!

God of all grace and steadfast love,
greatly is your name to be praised in all the earth. 
Bring us to this feast of remembrance
with open hearts!
