Call To Worship based on Exodus 3

Cries of Pain, Call to Follow

Hearing their cries,
God called to Israel,
“Come out”
Out of slavery to Empire
Into a land of promise

Hearing their lamentations,
God called, through the prophets,
“Come back”
Out from the land of exile
Into a new beginning

Hearing our despair,
Jesus calls his disciples,
“Come, follow me”
Out from the bondage to sin, and self, and status quo
Into the Kingdom of love, and peace, and joy in the Spirit

This was also used at our recent Presbytery meeting in South Alabama which was on the theme of Exodus 3
