Proper 14 Year C

Call to Worship

We come with our fears about our jobs, our families, our community.

"Come now, let us talk this over," says Yahweh.

We come with our weariness from trying to be all things to all people.

"Come now, let us talk this over," says Yahweh.

We come with our doubts that God even listens to our problems anymore.

"Come now, let us talk this over," says Yahweh.

And so we come.

 

Invocation

Based upon Hebrews 11. Written for Evangelical United Church of Christ. Copyright Katherine Hawker.

Now faith is

the assurance of things hoped for,

the conviction of things not seen.

We come convinced of many things

but trusting very few.

Holy God of limitless surprises,

meet us here

in this place

as we touch that which we can not see

that which we have not dared to hope.
