Gathering and Adoration
PRELUDE “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” Worshipbook #222
*CALL TO WORSHIP
Jesus comes along side us where we are, calling us by name:
“[Your name], follow me.”
A simple call. A hard call.
Because following sometimes requires changing direction, even leaving.
And we look around to see who else Jesus could be talking to.
And we look around to see the trappings of the life we know.
It’s hard to leave our nets, what’s familiar, and walk away from the lakeshore.
But we have come this far,
to this place
where we can listen
and be transformed and empowered.
