Call to Worship

One:                Let us lift our voices together in prayer.
Many:             May your people be one as the seas are one
One:                though salting a thousand shores.
Many:             May your people be one as the wind is one
One:                though whisper, though rush, though roar.
Many:             May your people be one as the birds are one
One:                though they sing a thousand songs.
Many:             May your people be one as our prayers are one
One:                though voiced in a thousand tongues.
Many:             May your people be one as the light is one
One:                though made of the colours of the rainbow.
Many:             May your people be one as your love is one –
One:                your love for all people, we know.
Many:             May your people be one as you are one:
One:                you in Christ, and Christ in you.
Many:             May your people be one as the Spirit is one,
One:                moving in us, moving through.
