A call to worship for All Saints / All Souls 2021. Inspired, in part, by lectionary texts of Psalm 24 and Wisdom of Solomon 3:1-9.
The earth and everything on it—
the world and all who live in it—
belong to the Ancient One.
Fellow pilgrims and beloved friends—
new neighbors and old foes—
here are held in the hand of God.
All saints and all souls and all sinners—
their stories and their lives, our memories and our grief—
are pieced together by the Quilter of Life.
Ones who belong,
Ones who are held,
Ones who pieced together,
We enter with hope this holy place of worship.
