Opening Litany: Luke 19: 1-10

Here’s a responsive opening for worship inspired by Luke 19: 1-10 (the story of Zacchaeus) and other gospel stories which tell of the crowds who sought Jesus out. 

Call to Worship
(inspired by Luke 19: 1-10)

With the pressing crowds, searching for healing and hope,
We wish to see Jesus.
With the pushed out and cast aside, with the lonely lost, stripped of pride,
We wish to see Jesus.
With those who seek mystery and meaning, wisdom and grace,
We wish to see Jesus.
