Call to Worship: Holy Humor Sunday


Here’s a call to worship for Holy Humor Sunday (or Laughter Sunday).  It comes from the United Church of Canada’s Bay of Quinte Conference website.

Call to Worship: Fools for Christ

We come into the presence of a God
we can neither see nor touch,
yet a God we can sense.
We are fools for Christ’s sake.

We come in the name of Jesus,
whose beauty we cannot explain or capture,
but know intimately.
We are fools for Christ’s sake.

We come to hear from a book,
words and stories that are ancient, and yet ever new.
We are fools for Christ’s sake.

We live in a world whose economy is based on keeping,
yet in this place we are invited to give.
We are fools for Christ’s sake.

We come, leaving behind all the business of our lives—.
all the other important things we could be doing.
We come here to worship.
We are fools for Christ’s sake.
