Here’s a contemporary call to worship written for American Independence Day (July 4), but useful for national celebrations in other countries as well.
Contemporary Call to Worship
Freedom is coming!
We can hear it in the voices of the oppressed.
Hope is coming!
We can see it in the eyes of all those who despair.
God is here!
We count on God’s presence with us,
to guide, heal and uplift our spirits. Amen.
