Here is a Call to Worship, written for Reformation Sunday, 2016.
One: When we feel withered and parched, and our faith lies fallow in the fields,
MANY: Reseed us, Replant us, Replenish us, O God.
One: When we’re up to our eyeballs in debt, or stuck in the depths of despair,
MANY: Resurrect us, Renew us, Restore us, O God.
One: When our desire to accumulate goods outweighs our desire to share with our neighbors,
MANY: Reduce us, Reuse us, Recycle us, Repurpose us, O God.
One: When we wish to see Jesus, but we can’t get a good view,
MANY: Revision us, Reform us, Refresh us, O God.
