Call to Worship
(inspired by Luke 7:36-50)
Mighty God, You welcome us into Your Kingdom as honored guests.
You give us water to wash our feet,
You give us a kiss of greeting,
and You anoint our heads with oil.
Merciful God, You welcome us even though we are sinners.
You forgive our debts and give us a seat at Your table.
Wondrous God, we have come here to give You our worship and praise.
May we make a joyful noise at Your table!
