A call to worship, based on the NRSVUE version of Genesis 1:1-5.
One: When God began to create the heavens and the earth,
Many: the earth was complete chaos,
and darkness covered the face of the deep,
One: at the same time, a rushing wind from God swept over the face of the waters. Then God said,
Many: Let there be light.
One: And there was light.
The light and darkness were distinct,
Many: And God called them good.
One: God named the light, Day
Many: and the darkness, Night.
One: There was evening and there was morning, the first day.
All: Swept in by the Breath of God,
we gather in the goodness of this moment to worship the Creator.
