Call to Worship: Open our Ears

I wrote this call to worship to accompany our gathering hymn for the month, “Open my Ears, Open my Eyes” (for you Mennonites, that’s Sing the Story #5.) We are still in our Elijah/Elisha sermon series.

Whispering God, the noise of the world is loud.
Open our ears to your still, small, voice.
God of revelation, the darkness of the world threatens.
Open our eyes to the light of your presence.
God of abundance, we cling tightly to so many things.
Open our hands in generosity and joy.
God of all people, we feel the fear of those who are “other.”
Open our arms to the stranger and the enemy.
God of mystery, we want so desperately to understand you.
Open our minds to the depths of your truth.
Creating God, we long to know your presence.
Open our hearts to receive your love.
