Responsive Call to Worship: Who do you say I am?

Here’s a responsive call to worship inspired by Matthew 16:15; Mark 8:29; Luke 9:20.  It has been adapted slightly from a version by Richard Bott, posted on Sharing Liturgy.

Responsive Call to Worship
(inspired by Matthew 16:15; Mark 8:29; Luke 9:20)

One:     They went to Jesus,
            and he asked them,

Two:     Who do you say I am?

One:     They answered,

Three:  You are the eschatological manifestation
            of the ground of our being,
            the kerygma of which we find meaning
            in our interpersonal relationships.


One:     And Jesus said,

Two:     What?!

One:     Faith doesn’t have to be that hard.
            Life doesn’t have to be that difficult.

Three:  Sometimes, we just have to live God’s love.
            Sometimes, we just have to live what we believe.

Two:     And so we are here,
            simply,
            to sing,
            to celebrate,
            to worship God!
