Call to Worship: Memorial Day


Here’s a responsive call to worship for Memorial Day or Remembrance Day.  It comes from the Mennonite Central Committee Canada.

Call to Worship

In a world filled with violence and war,
we gather together to celebrate the promise of peace.
In a world filled with tyranny and oppression,
we gather together to celebrate the promise of justice for all.
In a world filled with hunger and greed,
we gather together to celebrate the promise of plenty for all.
Our hope is in the name of the Almighty God,
the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer of heaven and earth.
