CALL TO WORSHIP
Jesus invites us to a way of celebration,
meeting and feasting with the humble and poor.
Jesus beckons us to a way of risk,
letting go of our security.
Jesus challenges us to listen to the voices
of those who have nothing to lose.
Jesus points us to a way of self-giving,
where power and status are overturned.
Jesus calls us to follow the way of the cross,
where despair is transformed by the promise of new life.
Let us walk his way with joy.
