*Call to Worship

One:        Jesus so often met people

Many:    gathered ‘round a table.

One:        He met Matthew and Zacchaeus and Simon and Peter,

Many:    gathered ‘round a table.

One:        He met Lazarus, Martha and Mary, Joanna and Susannah,

Many:    gathered ‘round a table.

One:        He could see people face to face, listen to their stories, share their laughter

Many:    gathered ‘round a table.

One:        And here we are now, where Jesus has promised to meet us,

Many:    gathered ‘round a table.

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
