Call to Worship

Leader: Our desire is to be among those who wash the feet of others.

All:          We confess that instead, sometimes our own feet walk to the other side of the road. Restore us, O God, we pray.

L.:           Our desire is to be among those who share their bread with the hungry.

All:          We confess that sometimes we feel weary in deeds of mercy and justice. Restore us, O God, we pray.

L.:           Our desire is to be among those who are willing to carry the cross.

All:          We confess that sometimes our actions deny that we know you. Restore us, O God, we pray.
