Call to Worship | Palm/Passion Sunday (Year C)

The following Call to Worship is by Thom Shuman, submitted via LiturgyLink.

We come to prepare for the holiest of weeks.
We will journey through praise, with joy on our lips;
we will travel through betrayal and death,
cradling hope deep in our hearts

Jesus leads us through this week, and we will follow,
for he is the life we long for,
he is the Word who sustains us.
We wave palm branches in anticipation,
we lay our love before him, to cushion his walk

Setting aside all power, glory, and might, he comes:
modeling humility and obedience for all of us.
Hosanna! Hosanna!
Blessed is the One who brings us
the kingdom of God.

Submitted by Rev. Thom Shuman, author of Lectionary Liturgies.
