Call to Worship: The Vineyard

Call to Worship
(inspired by Isaiah 5 and Psalm 80)

Long ago a vineyard was planted.
The ground was prepared, and all was made ready.
But the vines grew wild,
the ground was unable to support the wild grapes.
What happened in that place of promise?
People forgot the One who planted the vineyard.
They chose their own ways and failed.
Let us again turn to the Lord,
who will again plant, prune, and cause us to grow in faithfulness.
Let us open our hearts to God,
trusting in God's ways and God's word. Amen.
