One: Come, dreamers and doubters, plotters and plodders;

Many: The God of life is calling you to a new way of being.

One: Leave behind home and family, fear and judgment, pride and shame;

Many: The God of life is calling you to a new way of being.

One: Whether you are stuck at the bottom of a pit,
or anxiously steering your boat through a storm,

Many: The God of life is calling you to a new way of being.

One: Whether you are angry about injustice
or longing to step out and try something new,

Many: The God of life is calling you to a new way of being.

One: In our speaking, in our listening, in our singing, in our praying,

Many: May we hear the word of life that God has for us today.
