Call to Worship

Based upon Matthew 13:31ff. Written for Evangelical United Church of Christ, 1999. Copyright Katherine Hawker.

The kingdom of God is here, and coming.

A mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field;

it is the smallest of all the seeds,

but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree,

so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.

The kingdom of God is here, and coming.

Yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour

until all was leavened.

The kingdom of God is here, and coming.

Treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid;

then joyfully sells all he has and buys the field.

The kingdom of God is here, and coming.

A merchant in search of fine pearls;

on finding one of great value,

sells all of his possessions and buys the pearl.

The kingdom of God is here, and coming.

Let all who have ears, hear.
