Call to Worship for Pentecost Sunday (that includes baptism and communion)
God of wind and fire,
When you send your Spirit, we are created anew.
God of mighty oceans and still waters,
When we receive your baptism, we are born anew.
God of bread and wine,
When we eat at your table, we are nourished anew.
So pour out your Spirit
Let sacred waters flow
Fill us with holy food.
May our hearts and our hands be open wide
to receive your gifts of life.
Words for benediction–and my prayer for each of you:
As you go forth from this place,
may the wind of the Spirit startle your senses and blow through your life;
may the fire of the Spirit scorch your complacency and light your way.
And may the blessing of the Holy One—Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer—rest with you now and forever more. Amen.
