21st Century Resources for the Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost

Call to Worship

One: When God created the universe,

Many: God was planning our future.

One: When the breath of God swept over the dark waters,

Many: God was thinking about us.

One: When God separated the light from the darkness and the sea from dry land,

Many: God was setting the stage for the rest of our lives.

One: When God breathed into humanity the breath of life,

Many: God was already preparing our pathways.

One: When God created living beings to swim in the oceans, fly above the earth
and creep upon the land, we were on God's mind.

Many: We have always been on God's mind.
Today we turn our hearts and our minds to worship God.
