"Let Love Continue:" A Call to Worship riffing on both Hebrews 13:1-2 and 1 Corinthians 13

Keep loving each other like family. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers
for by doing that, we might have entertained angels without knowing it. 

If we speak in tongues of human beings and of divine angels but we don’t have love,
we’re clanging gongs and clashing cymbals.  Let love continue.

If we give away everything that we have and hand over ourselves to feel good about what we’ve done but don’t have love,
we receive no benefit whatsoever.  Let love continue.

If we sing to God and speak for justice, but don’t seek mercy or have love,
our words are vain—our mouths useless. Let love continue.

If we open our doors to bring people in, but don’t seek to reach out to a hurting world in love,
our hospitality is empty. Let love continue.

Glory to God, who is present in every stranger among us, and who works in our lives every day. 

Glory to the one who is love, and whose love is in us

Let love continue.
