Call to Worship
Christ came to restore our world's brokenness.
Our redemption walked in his footsteps,
lived through his hands,
and suffered on the cross.
We pray God's Will be done, God's Kingdom come on Earth as in Heaven.
What is begun but not yet complete. We continue to ache, to groan, to call out.
Christ's work goes on, leading us in our call to be the church.
The God of compassion and mercy is patient and full of faithful love.
God's love endures forever. Hallelujah!
