Call to Worship: Into the Wilderness

Here’s a call to worship for the first Sunday of Lent.  It was written by Thom Shuman.


Call to Worship

(inspired by Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13, Luke 4:1-13)

Jesus began his ministry to the world,

led by the Spirit into the wilderness.
As we begin our Lenten journey,
let us be led by the Spirit,
even into the uncomfortable places.
In those forty days, and in that place,
Jesus was faced with hunger, doubt
and temptation.
As we seek to follow Jesus,
we would be led,
even into the uncomfortable choices.
Jesus left the wilderness,
faithful and obedient to God,
rejoicing in the One in whom he trusted.
As we continue on our path to faithfulness,
we will be led by our Christ,
rejoicing in the Lord our God
