Call to WorshipGeorge Cook/Davy Davis
Come
in, all who are tired and thirsty.
The Good Shepherd leads us to grassy
meadows and restful
waters.

Come
in, all who are anxious and afraid.
The Good Shepherd protects us and leads
us through dark valleys.
Come
in, all who are empty and exhausted.
The Good Shepherd fills our lives with
goodness and faithful love.
Come
in, to be refreshed, to rest, and to receive.
The Good Shepherd has brought us here.
Amen.

Loving Shepherd, you lead us
along right paths and give us abundant life. Still, we resist your call.We want to be in control; we wish to
determine our own direction. Forgive us when we ignore your voice and turn
away. Bring us back into your fold through the gates of your redeeming love.
Amen.
