Call to Worship Based on Psalm 139:7-12

Where can I go, where can I run, where can I be that I am not within your love?

If I sail on the wings of the wind or make my bed in hell, still there you find me.
If I change my appearance like trees through the seasons, still you see my roots.

No matter how dark I let my heart become,
no matter what doubts and questions I wrestle with in the night

Still there you are – still loving me.

I beat at the air with my fists; I curse the rain as it falls on my tear-clinched eyes

Still there you are – still loving me.

And even when I don’t know how, who, or why…

Still… there… you are…
Still… loving… even me.

The author offers special thanks to David Vaughan who challenged him this week to write again.
