Call to Worship for Advent 3 for “Fear Not” series

Call to Worship for Advent 3 based on Matthew 1:18-25
The Call
God calls us and wakes us from our tired apathy.
   God has a plan, don’t be afraid!
We are a part of the plan. God needs us,
   Not to follow the rules, but to stand out in grace.
Others will judge us. We’ll feel like our lives are falling apart,
   But God’s plan is growing and will soon come to life.
God, strengthen our faith, make us merciful and kind,
   Stand with us when we stand out for you.
