CALL TO WORSHIP

We gather in preparation

for good news is about to be proclaimed.

We gather in expectation

for joy is about to break forth in our midst.

We gather in celebration

for we are those people who have said

yes to the manger,

yes to the one incarnate for others,

yes to the wholeness of God.

In preparation and expectation, let us celebrate!

OUR LORD’S PRAYER, IN UNISION
Our Father/Mother/Creator, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come; thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
