DOXOLOGY & CALL TO WORSHIP

We gather this Advent morning because
the hope and the waiting is hard.

Because the quiet and holy night
Feels distant enough to be forgotten.

And because the history and the imminence
Are too long to be endured.

We gather this morning because
Waiting can be hard
And in the hard and silent time
We need the grace of
Table
Word
And other.

We gather because we need it.

Missio, this is you call to worship.

Amen.

BENEDICITON

Missio,

We are an incarnation people; rescued by the sacrificial self-giving pursuit of our God. That’s who He is and because of him that’s who we are. Go today, in the image and mind of Christ and be the Church this week.

Amen.
