Call to Worship: Bold and Timid


Here’s a call to worship inspired by Psalm 63 and Isaiah 55:1-5.  It comes from the United Church of Christ’s Worship Ways archive.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Psalm 63 and Isaiah 55:1-5)

Come into the sanctuary and look around. 
Behold the beauty and splendor of God’s people. 
All of us – rich and poor, employed and unemployed
and desperately hanging on. 
Behold the beauty and splendor of God’s people.

We believe God’s steadfast love is better than life,
so let our lips praise God as long as we live.
We also often doubt God’s love. 
We often doubt that God will really provide when it matters.

But this is what matters today: 
God said, “Come all who are thirsty, come to the water,
and you that have no money, come, buy and eat.” 
All of us – rich and poor, employed and unemployed
and desperately hanging on.
So with faith – both bold and timid – let us worship God!
