CALL TO WORSHIP

One: We gath­er togeth­er, wav­ing palms of joy, wav­ing branch­es of peace,

All:  Eager to see Jesus, anx­ious for his heal­ing touch, hop­ing to receive a   bless­ing.

One: We gath­er togeth­er, wav­ing palms of joy, wav­ing branch­es of praise,

All:  Long­ing to know abid­ing peace in the midst of press­ing wor­ry and hur­ry,   long­ing to be accept­ed for who we are instead of being judged for not 

  being or doing enough.

One: We gath­er togeth­er, wav­ing palms of joy, wav­ing branch­es of peace,

All:  Hop­ing we are ready to walk with Jesus through the night of anguish, the   morn­ing of accu­sa­tions, the noon of despair, the hours of dark­ness.

One: We gath­er togeth­er, wav­ing palms of joy, wav­ing branch­es of prayer,

All:    Walk­ing toward hope.
