Proper 21 – Year A

God called…
and I said, “I hear you! I’m coming!”
But then…
I stayed where I was.

God called…
and I said, “Forget it!”
But then…
I decided to follow.

God calls.
How do we respond?
God invites.
How do we respond?
God blesses.
How do we respond?
God loves.
God loves!
GOD LOVES!
How do we respond?

This time we hear, Holy One.
This time we gather, as your people,
brought together by your call…
and your love.
We ask that you would guide us.
We ask that you would lead us.
We ask that you would remind us
of our covenant relationships –
with you, and with each other…
and we ask
that you would help us to live all times like this time,
responding to your invitation,
not only with word – but with action;
not only with action – but with word.
In your love we ask these things.

Amen.
