Call to Worship

May the light of God’s love push back the darkness. We come to the light from the four corners of the earth, from the north, from the south, from the east, and from the west. But we are all one in Jesus Christ. We come from many nations and many cultures. But we are all one in Jesus Christ. We come seeking the light that guides us to life. But we are all one in Jesus Christ. Let us lift up our many voices and praise the God of all people.
