In the presence of God

Being fully present in each moment of the worship opens the potential for awe, joy, splendor and wonder. This brief Call to Worship reminds us to expect something transformative.


One:  Just a taste of something wonderful.

All:  Only a glimpse of something magnificent.

One:  Just a glimmer of something holy in something so ordinary.

All:  Yet, enough to know we are in the presence of God.

One:  Enough to cause us to stop and stare in awe,

All:  Enough to stir our hearts in wonder,

One:  Enough to set our feet to dancing

All:  And to prompt our voices to protest and praise.
