Here’s a call to worship written during the COVID-19 pandemic. It comes from Ann Harbridge, Minister at Trinity Centennial United Church in Rosemont, Ontario, Canada.
Prayer of Approach
(inspired by Luke 24:13-35)
O God, you come to us in unexpected places
In isolation, behind closed doors
On dusty roads, as we go from place to place
In video chats with friends and telephone conversations with loved ones.
You come bringing us peace, where there is no peace
You come bringing us hope when everything seems hopeless
You come bringing us courage when we are afraid.
Come and be among us now, in every place where we are.
Open our eyes to see you, open our hearts to know you.
In the name of the Risen Christ we pray. Amen
