Call to Worship: Traveling (Luke 10:1-11, 16-20)

My congregation will soon embark on a new worship series inspired by the work of the inimitable Dr. Marcia McFee, who provides excellent resources on worship at www.worshipdesignstudio.com. The worship series is called "The Outsider," and explores the many types of people on the margins that Jesus encounters (or inspires people to become) in the Gospel of Luke. I look forward to sharing further creative ideas I come across as we dream this worship series into life. On our first Sunday, we will journey with "the traveler" as we explore Jesus' sending of the Disciples in groups of two and our churches' responsibility to be havens to all kinds of travelers.. What follows is our call to worship.

Peace to this house!
May we bring peace with us wherever we go.

When the journey has been long,
may we bring peace with us wherever we go.

When our burdens weigh us down,
may we bring peace with us wherever we go.

When the long paths we have taken leave scars,
may we bring peace with us wherever we go.

When we encounter fellow travelers along the way,
may we bring peace with us wherever we go.

May this house be a place of peace in chaotic times, a place of mercy
in an unforgiving world, a place of healing amidst so much pain.
Peace to this house!
