Call to Worship for Baptism of the Lord Sunday

A 21st Century Worship Resource
by Rev. Nathan Decker

In the beginning when God created
A wind swept over the waters,
A breath warmed the dark voids,
A Spirit called forth creation.

God gave in grace:
Let there be light for all to see,
Let there be water for all to splash in,
Let there be life in the midst of death
Yes, let there be life beyond death.

And God invited and invites us to respond, rejoicing!
It was good,
It was awesome and awe-filled,

It is good.


The Rev. Nathan Decker is the pastor of the Cheriton Charge on the Eastern Shore District and a clergy member of the Virginia Annual Conference. His great love is the diversity and inspiration of God's creative nature in worship.
