CTW: the intersection of Enduring Love & Faithfulness

Call to Worship

L: We come, so God might open our eyes,
P: that we may discover the wonders surrounding us;
that we may embrace the joy deep within us.
L: We gather, so Christ might widen our hearts,
P: that we may hear the sounds of brokenness around us;
that we may sing the melodies of hope.
L: We are here, so the Spirit might teach us the ways of humility,
P: that we may walk that street named Enduring Love;
that we may wait at the corner called Faithfulness.

    Thanx, Thom! I love this call to worship! We don’t do back and forth ctw’s usually, so I tweaked it for my context (and I used “gather” more than you did originally):

    We gather, so God might open our eyes –
    that we may discover the wonders surrounding us;
    that we may embrace the joy deep within us.
    We gather, so Christ might widen our hearts –
    that we may hear the sounds of brokenness around us;
    that we may sing the melodies of hope.
    We gather, so the Spirit might teach us the ways of humility –
    that we may walk that street named Enduring Love;
    that we may wait at the corner called Faithfulness.
    We are gathered…so let’s worship God!
