Call to Worship: Emmaus Road

Here’s a thoughtful call to worship inspired by Luke 24:13-35, where the disciples encounter Jesus on the road to Emmaus.  It was written by Carol Penner.

Call to Worship
(based on Luke 24:13-35)

For where two or three are gathered in my name,
there am I in the midst of them.
 Matthew 18:20 KJV

We need your presence on the long road, Lord.
The road between fear and hope,
the road between the place where all is lost
and the place of resurrection.
Like the disciples walking the road to Emmaus,
we are in need of your company!
Jesus, stand among us, in your risen power,
let this time of worship, be a hallowed hour.
