CALL TO WORSHIP (John 12. 12–16)

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.
