Call to Worship: Beatitudes

Here’s a contemporary call to worship inspired by the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12, Luke 6:20-22).  It was written by Katherine Hawker.

Call to Worship
(inspired by Matthew 5:3-12, Luke 6:20-22)

Happy are we
when our treasures cannot be quantified.
Happy are we
when our knowledge is tempered by mystery.
Happy are we
when our pain is held in the balm of love.
Happy are we
when our delight comes from beyond ourselves.
