DOXOLOGY & CALL TO WORSHIP

We gather today because

It’s easy to believe a gospel of self

Harder to live with the isolation

Because it’s easy to hope in a gospel of consumption

Harder to manage the commodification.

Because it’s easy to trust a gospel of achievement

Harder to control the anxiety

We gather today because

The gospel offers of our world look beautiful

But are built on shallow promises and empty hopes

We gather today because

Jesus offers a the gospel of himself

A gospel of more than empty lies

But of full life.

Amen.

BENEDICITON

Missio,

You are not alone. We, as Christ followers, are never alone. Though we have moments of hardship that lead to loneliness and tempt us towards isolation, remember that Jesus is with us. In our hurt, anxiety, and isolation––Jesus is with us. Go now, in the blessing of Christ’s companionship. Accept his invitation to intimacy. Go now, as an ambassador of Jesus, and be the Church this week.

Amen.
