I Can’t Face Forgiving You

From the ‘Sing Young, Sing Joyfully’ collection

You have caused me too much pain.

We can’t be good friends again.

Letting my dark anger reign.

Call to Worship for a Sacred Community

Welcome! One thing is for certain. We are all welcome. This is the Jesus way. He called people to him; he asked people to come to him; he welcomed them; he got cranky with his disciples when they tried to prevent anyone, anyone at all coming to him. He ate with outcasts, those despised; he befriended tax collectors, those regarded as thieves; he encouraged children, usually ignored in adult community, to sit on his knees; he had meals with the elite and the riffraff; he conversed publicly with women although that was taboo; unlike the religious leaders of his day, he sought the company of all kinds and types of people, to affirm them, to challenge them, to call them to an abundant way of life. So we are all welcome. This is the Jesus way.

One who made sure that the poor were fed
Land for the landless, home for the homeless
And baskets filled with fish and bread.

Of frugal lives and love’s excess.
