Call to Worship

All:      Listen! Wisdom is calling!

One:    Before all began, God, Word, and Wisdom. Creating, calling, from the foundations of the deep.
All:      Listen! Wisdom is calling!

One:    From the mountain tops, earth, fields, and sea. Creating, calling from the foundations of the deep.
All:      Listen! Wisdom is calling!

One:    To those who suffer, God’s love is given. Endurance blossoms from the foundations of the deep.
All:      Listen! Wisdom is calling!

One:    Daily, God’s delight. You, me, every one given hope, grace, love as the foundation of our lives.
All:      Listen! Wisdom is calling!

One:    Poured into our hearts that we may become Christ’s hand and heart, love as the foundation of our lives.
All:      Listen! Wisdom is calling!

*     Opening Hymn – MV #10 – “Come and Seek the Ways of Wisdom”

Prayer of Approach and Celebration

You give us faith to make us right with You again. You give us peace to bring us home to You again. You give us grace in which we stand, in Your presence, in Your Love, in Your honour.
Thus we withstand our suffering, and we endure; we find resilience, and we grow; we develop character, and we hope – we hope, for Your love, our faithful Holy One, is poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. You give us Your Spirit, breath of live, wind of flight. You give us Your Wisdom, welcoming light, path of right relationship. You give us Your Love, source of life, home each night of sorrow and day of quite exquisite joy. We stand in awe, grateful for such gifts, inspired to fly, to love, to shine light in the world. Amen.
