Call to worship 28 November 2021

The prophet Jeremiah tells us:

“‘The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will fulfil the good promise I made to the people of Israel and Judah.

15 “‘In those days and at that time
I will make a righteous Branch sprout from David’s line;
he will do what is just and right in the land.
16 In those days Judah will be saved
and Jerusalem will live in safety.
This is the name by which it will be called:
Lord Our Righteous Saviour.’”

We begin our Advent journey today.

A time to prepare, to wait, to anticipate

that promise God gave to Jeremiah

the righteous branch from David’s line



for our salvation

in that hope and expectation, we light our first Advent candles

[light candle]

May the light of hope burn brightly

on this wreath

and in our hearts

to burn within us

as we worship this day
