Call to Worship                                                                                    Phillip Hawkins

As God is our shepherd we need nothing else.

     We rest in green pastures and walk by still waters,
        which renews and refreshes our spirits.

God guides us along paths of righteousness

      And walks with us through shadowed valleys so we are not afraid.
         The shepherd’s staff comforts us.

God set the banquet table for us in the presence of our enemies.
There, we’re anointed with oil and our cup overflows.

      Goodness and mercy shall never depart from us

          as long as we dwell in the house of God.
