CALL TO WORSHIP

One: We are the church.

Many: We are the church that lives into God’s future today.

One: A church united across space and time.

Many: A church of many races, languages and ethnicities.

One: A church that lives by the work of God in Christ

that was, is now, and is still to come.

Many: The one who is seated on the throne says to us:

“See, I am making all things new!”

One: A new heaven and a new earth,

where the home of God is among God’s people.

Many: God’s good news is epic, and it’s our story, 

with all the saints: past, present, and yet to come!

SCRIPTURE READING

Deuteronomy 6:5-9, Joshua 4:4-7, 1 Peter 2:4-5

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.”

“So Joshua called together the twelve men he had appointed from the Israelites, one from each tribe, and said to them, “Go over before the ark of the Lord your God into the middle of the Jordan. Each of you is to take up a stone on his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the Israelites, to serve as a sign among you. In the future, when your children ask you, ‘What do these stones mean?’ tell them that the flow of the Jordan was cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it crossed the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. These stones are to be a memorial to the people of Israel forever.”

“As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.”

RESPONSE TO SCRIPTURE

One: This is the word of God for the people of God.
