Here’s an opening invocation inspired by Hebrews 11. It was written by Katherine Hawker.
(inspired by Hebrews 11)
Now faith is
the assurance of things hoped for,
the conviction of things not seen.
We come convinced of many things
but trusting very few.
Holy God of limitless surprises,
meet us here
in this place
as we touch that which we can not see
that which we have not dared to hope.
