Passing the Peace
Call to Worship
The heavens are telling the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours forth speech,
and night to night declares knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard;
yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world.
The glory of God echoes throughout the world.
Let us praise the name of the Lord.
—based on Psalm 19:1-4, NRSV
