A Pride Parade Sunday Call to Worship (Isaiah 40:1-5)

The mouth of the Lord has spoken:
act justly, love mercy, and proceed humbly with your God

A path has been laid for us in loving god:
By loving one another, we enable each other to be transformed by God’s grace.

God’s glory has been revealed
in the colorful, beautiful tapestry that makes up the Body of Christ.

We all shall witness this glory together
with God’s help.

Boundary shaping God, who undermines harmful categories, harmful teaching, and harmful systems with all-encompassing radical love, we give you thanks for the beauty of our bodies, and how the diversity of our beautiful and unique bodies is a part of your Body that is here in this particular place. Erase our fear of what is different. Remove what prevents us from loving our neighbor. Heal us of hatred, and self-loathing, and compel us to act with charity to all of your creation. Amen.
