Rooted in the Spirit, Open to New Paths (Call to Worship)

The journey begins again. 

Pack your bags.

What shall we carry?

Take the memories and stories

Of those who came before.

Then why do we go?

We go because now is not then.

We go because God beckons us.

Why do we carry the past?

Our stories, our faith made us. 

We need our WAS to make the journey.

What else do we need?

Take a deep breath, close your eyes.

Do you not perceive it?

[moment of silence]

The Spirit is with us in the NOW.

She dances before us luring us to the WILL-BE.

Rooted in the Spirit, we are open to new paths.

Let our pilgrimage begin.

Amen.
