Call to Worship:  Be Made Clean!

(Based on Mark 1:40-45)
Leader: Today is the day to cry out to our Lord:

People: If you are willing, cleanse us of our sins, make us whole.

Leader: Today is the day for us to make a choice;

People: No longer to be victims or captives,
But to be that healing witness in the world we have sought!

Leader: Today is the day to reach out to society's lepers,
To choose a faith of healing humanity and solidarity.

People: We do choose.
Be made clean!

(Invite worshipers to say these words to one another)
