we incarnate God in the world (call to worship, Feb 4)
the call to worship from Sunday night’s worship service:
We celebrate that where people are gathered together in love, God is present and good things happen and life is full.
We celebrate that we are immersed in mystery that our lives are more than they seem, that we belong to each other and to a universe of great creative energies, whose source and destiny is God.
We celebrate that the spirit of God beat in the heart of Jesus of Nazareth and God’s good news was heard by the broken and wounded.
We are glad that the spirit of peace is present with us, the church, as we gather to celebrate our common existence, and the fidelity of God.
And most deeply we believe that in our struggle to love, we incarnate God in the world.
And so aware of mystery and wonder, caught in friendship and laughter, we become speechless before the joy in our hearts as we celebrate the sacredness of life.
