Praise to God for Our Diverse Gifts

*Call to Worship

Come and worship.

We gather as one people.

Bring your gifts.

We have different gifts.

But the same Spirit provides them.

L: Some of us are leaders.

R: Some of us teachers.

L: Some have a contemplative spirit.

R: Others among us are passionate about doing justice and love.

L: Some of us are gifted healers.

All of us are needed and of God.

The Spirit provides our gifts. We are all God’s beloved people. Praise be to God for our diversity of skills, talents, and gifts. Amen.

He writes from his home in Albany, Oregon and wherever the Spirit lures him.
