Call to Worship

Based on James 5. Written for Evangelical United Church of Christ, 1997. Copyright Katherine Hawker.

Are any among you suffering?

Then let us pray.

Are any cheerful?

Then let us sing songs of praise.

Are any among you sick?

Then let us turn to each other for God's healing touch.

The prayer of faith will save us

And God will lift us up.

 

Invocation

Based on Mark 9:49-50. Written for Evangelical United Church of Christ, 1997. Copyright Katherine Hawker.

God of the salt

God of the fire

God of anger

God of laughter

God of parables and riddles

God of story and proclamation

God of comfort

God of affliction

God of the salt

God of the fire

come now

be now

here now.

Amen.
