Call to Worship: One in Christ

BLMThis Sunday will be the first in our “Rooted and Grounded” series, exploring the biblical and theological bases for some of our dearly held values. We begin by exploring the biblical foundation for anti-racism work.

Our call to worship is based on Genesis 1:27 and Galatians 3:28-29.

 

 

 

We are created by God
in the image of God.
All people are created by God
in the image of God.
In our glorious differences,
we reflect the Holy face of God.
All who gather in Christian worship–across the country and around the world–
are brought near to God through Jesus.
We are not Jew or Greek,
low class or high class,
male or female,
gay or straight,
black or white,
citizen or immigrant.
We are one in Christ Jesus.
We are made in God’s image.
So let us love each other
and worship our God with joy.

  1. I’d be interested to know your scriptures and theological framework week by week. Anabaptist Fellowship of Alamosa, which I am pastoring, is also exploring racism and white privilege this year…Thanks for sharing this Joanna!
