Call to Worship (Jeremiah 1:4-10)

Before we ever try to love God
God loves us.
Before we ever learn to see with compassion and courage
God has a vision for us.
Before we ever fail to live up to false expectations,
God has a way for us.
Before we ever give of ourselves for the sake of someone else
God empties God’s self for us.
Before we ever are formed in the womb
God knows us.

All Glory, Honor, and Love to God, who creates us as an act of divine love, redeems us despite our sin, and sustains us as we grow to become God’s perfect children; who has been the creator of the world, redeemer of all life, and sustainer of the universe now and forever, Amen.

"O Lord, open our lips" A Call to Worship

O Lord, open our lips
And we shall declare your praise.

O Lord, open our hearts
And our deeds shall reflect your grace.

O Lord, open our minds
And our thoughts shall show forth your truth

O Lord, open our arms
And our work shall reveal your love

O Lord, open our fists
And our hands shall promote your peace

O Lord, open our doors
And our church shall reflect your kingdom

O Lord, open our lips
And we shall declare your praise.
