We rejoice in our diversity

This call helps us center ourselves in God's presence to celebrate all of who we are.


One: In the name of the Creator who made us,

Many: We celebrate the goodness of our lives.

One: In the name of the Christ who came to set us free,

Many: We rejoice in our diversity of love and life.

One: In the name of the Spirit who sustains us,

Many: We challenge ourselves to grow and to dream.

One: God, in your presence we gather,

Many: Be among us now!
