“Holy Ground”

*Call to Worship                                                                     

One:       All around the world,

All:        People rise to greet the morning and sing praise to the Creator.

One:       All over the earth,

All:        People hold hands around a table and offer thanks.

One:       All around the globe,

All:        Some cry for food, some are filled with laughter, all search for truth.

One:       All around the world,

All:        Hearts hear a sacred melody and yearn for peace.

One:       Throughout this day, across many lands,

All:        Sisters and brothers touch the bread of life and drink the cup of joy.

One:       All around the world,

All:        People sing, and we join the unending chorus of praise.


*Hymn of Praise      “How Great Thou Art”              UMH #77


*Invocation (Unison)          

Holy One, you are the Bread of Life, you are the Cup of Healing for all the nations. You delight our senses with smell and touch, with sight and sound, with taste and pleasure.

As we have gathered, like wheat from the hills to become your Body, fill us with your Holy Spirit, and make us drunk with your presence.

Bring us to your banquet table, that we may feed the world in praise and prayer.
