Call to Worship: First and Last


Here’s a contemporary call to worship written by Katherine Hawker.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Matthew 20:16, Mark 9:30-37)

The first shall be last.
We come to worship as we are.
The last shall be first.
We come with confidence.
The first shall be last.
We come with questions.
The last shall be first.
We come burdened by failure.
The first shall be last.
We come celebrating success.
The last shall be first.
We come fearful of the future.
The first shall be last
and the last shall be first
and a little child shall lead them.
