Submitted by Rev. Scott Cervas, Meadowthorpe Presbyterian Church, this Call to Worship for Independence Day weekend was inspired by “The New Colossus” by Emma Lazarus, the sonnet which hangs inside the Statue of Liberty.
Let’s be gathered…here…together…
those of us who are tired and want to be renewed;
those of us who are impoverished and seek nourishment;
those of us who are suffocating and yearn to breathe free;
those of us who are ignored and long for a sense of purpose;
those of us who are tossed about and long for a place to belong;
Let’s be gathered…here…together…all of us…and worship God!
