How Love Came to Earth

Call to Worship

by Thandiwe Dale-Ferguson

Please join us in our responsive call to worship.

God, you came into the world weak:

A baby born in a stable,

Sleeping in a feeding trough

With animal smells and sounds all around.

This is how love came to earth.

God, you have made us vulnerable.

Our bodies can get sick and hurt.

Our hearts are easily broken.

Life is not always safe.

This is how love lives on earth.

God, you have also made us resilient.

Bodies can heal.

Hearts can mend. 

Lives and communities can change.

This is how love heals us all. 

God, you power is made perfect in our weakness.

For weakness breaks us open

And makes room for us to grow and flourish.

So that we can be your love

Today, tomorrow and every day. 

Let us worship our God.
