Our Approach To God

Call to Worship: Donna MacKay


Leader: We come together, still thinking about our daily routines and concerns:  What’s for lunch? What still needs to be done? What’s happening this week?

People: God invites us now to take a deep breath and turn our attention in a different direction:

 

Leader: Where is the Spirit at work? Where is Jesus present today? Where is God creating something new among us?

People: So, let us quiet the voices within us and be attentive to God’s voice speaking to us in this hour.

 

All: Let us worship God.
