Burnt Offerings

A Call to Worship based on Micah 6:6-8 (playing around with things for Sunday…because some of the passages we have heard too many times we don’t listen to anymore)

Leader: What must we bring when we worship God?
People: Does our God want burnt offerings? Valuable oil poured out like a river?
Leader: Does God ask us to give up our firstborn children?
People: No. We are God’s people in a different time, and the old ways are not ours.
Leader: That’s right. The old ways are not ours.
People: What does God really want?
Leader: It’s simple. God has told us what is good:
All: To do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with our God.
Leader: With hearts humbly opened, let us worship God together.

  1. NICE. "We are God's people in a different time, and the old ways are not ours."I used your example of how Jesus and his friends couldn't have imagined a church that gave out dog food – with a group of people recently. It really resounds fo rme.

  2. This is really nice. You know, I think I've really been impressed with every liturgy piece you've ever posted. You're quite gifted. Thank you for sharing.
