Call to Worship: Revelation 22


Here’s a call to worship inspired by Revelation 22.  It was written by Rev. Dr. Cari Jackson.

Call to Worship
(based on Revelation 22)

The Spirit of God bids us, “Come.”
Let everyone who hears within their hearts “Come.”
Hear the whole earth rejoice and
the coastlands sing of our God’s steadfast love.

We come to rejoice in the Holy One, our God.
We give thanks for God sets us free!

Let everyone who is thirsty for the Spirit “Come.” 
Let anyone who wishes “Come,”
and receive the water of life as a gift.

We come to rejoice in the Holy One, our God.
We give thanks for God’s steadfast love
that brings joy to our hearts in the night,
lights our lives like the dawn,
and sets us free.  Amen.
