Call to Worship: Isaiah

Here’s a call to worship inspired by the book of Isaiah.  It comes from the National Council of Churches USA website.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Isaiah 2:4, Isaiah 52:7)

How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of those who bring good news.
Who publish peace, who bring good tidings,
who publish salvation, and proclaim,
“Your God reigns!”
God will judge among many peoples,
And they shall beat their swords into plowshares
and nation shall not lift up sword against nation:
neither shall they learn war any more.
Let us lift up our voices
and praise the God of peace and justice.
