Call to Worship     (Psalm 50:1-6)

One:  The Lord, the God of gods, has spoken;
he has called the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.

All:          Out of Zion, perfect in its beauty, God reveals himself in glory.

One: Our God will come and will not keep silence; before him there is a consuming flame, and round about him a raging storm.

All:          He calls the heavens and the earth from above to witness the judgment of his people.

One:   Gather before me my loyal followers, those who have made a covenant with me and sealed it with sacrifice.

All:          All:  Let the heavens declare the rightness of his cause; for God himself is judge.

Gathering Prayer:  O Lord who answers out of the whirlwind of everyday life, breathe in us Your Holy Spirit to strengthen, comfort, and guide us in the midst of the storm.
