Father Abraham, Mother Sarah: A Call to Worship for Genesis 12:1-9

A 21st Century Africana Liturgy Resource
by Safiyah Fosua

One voice: Father Abraham has many sons.

Many Voices: Black ones and white ones
Yellow, brown and red ones.

All: We all claim Father Abraham!

One voice: Mother Sarah has many daughters.

Many Voices: Poor ones and rich ones
Young ones, retired ones.

All: We all claim mother Sarah!

One voice: I have a story, you have a story, and God has a story.
Look for yourself in the beginning of the story
Of Father Abraham.

Many Voices: And Mother Sarah.

All: And all people of faith!
