CTW: the table is set

A call to worship for communion Sunday.
Submitted by Rev. Teri Peterson, Ridgefield-Crystal Lake Presbyterian Church

One:            God calls us to a feast!
All:            The table is set,
and we will come from east and west,
from north and south to sit at Christ’s table.

One:            Compassion, love, and grace are poured out like fine wine.
All:            We come to share our stories and Your story,
to share our hope and our pain,
to share our wisdom and our laughter.

One:            The table is set, so come let us worship God together!

~~~

adaptation for a day reflecting on the Prodigal story from the perspective of the older brother, combined with 2 Corinthians 5.17:

One:            God calls us to a feast!
All:            The table is set,
and we will come from east and west,
from north and south to sit at Christ’s table.

One:            Compassion, love, and grace are poured out like fine wine.
All:             There’s music and dancing and joy,
for better is one day in God’s house
than thousands elsewhere.
One:           Will we come in?
All:             We will worship God together,
and God will draw us together as the body of Christ.
