Call to Worship
One: Jesus was beloved by the poor and the outcast
All: but he was a threat to people with power.
One: Jesus stood against the Temple,
All: so he was a threat to the Sadducees.
One: Jesus healed on the Sabbath and ate with sinners,
All: so he was a threat to the Pharisees.
One: Jesus took the titles of “Lord,” “Son of God,” and “King.”
All: those were the Caesar’s titles:
he was a threat to the government.
One: Jesus came without violence
All: yet he disturbed the peace.
April: Jesus came proclaiming the Kingdom of God
All: and the kingdoms of this world were frightened.
One: Lord, help us to love your Kingdom
more than the kingdoms of this world.
All: For thine is the Kingdom,
the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
Passing of Peace
Song - Ready the Way of the Lord
