Proper 5 C


1 Kings 17-18 (Elijah)

We see Elijah calling on the name of God, _
responding to the forces of evil with an appeal to a higher power.
May we be a people of faith.

We see Elijah caring for the most vulnerable, _
offering bread to the widow and a healing touch to her child.
May we be a people of compassion.

We see Elijah speaking truth to power, _
daring to deliver words of judgment to the King.
May we be a people of justice.

We see Elijah ascend in the whirlwind, _
offering the promise of the still unfolding future.
May we be a people of hope.

Call to Worship - 1995

Holy God of wind and fire;

Dance through this room today.

Holy God of earthquakes and illness;

Share our tears of sadness and pain.

Holy God of creation and new beginnings;

Show us again your vision of healing and wholeness.
