Here’s a call to worship litany inspired by Psalm 1.  It was written by Joan Stott.


Call to Worship Litany

(based on Psalm 1)


With joy and delight we gather to praise our Holy God!
With reverence and awe, we approach our Gracious God.
We give thanks that God understands us, and does not
want us to be that which we were never created to become!

Creating God, you call us to worship you as your children,
made in your image, with a divine spark within each of us.
We give thanks that God understands us, and encourages
us to grow in our knowledge of God’s awesome holiness.

Glorious God, you invite us to sink our roots deep into your love
and holiness, and to grow stronger each day in our faith in you.
We give thanks that God understands us, and that the fruits
we bear are consistent with what God created us to become.
We gather to worship and praise our supporting and caring God. Amen.
