Call to Worship
Wherever we are, wherever we may be we worship and bow down;
we kneel before our Creator.
We are the people of our Shepherd’s pasture;
we are the sheep in the Lord’s hands.
The earth’s depths are in God’s hands.
We listen for our good Shepherd’s voice.
*Welcoming the Light of Christ
Light your candle(s) while singing / listening to symbolize the light of Christ in the world, in your life, and in your space.
