Maundy Thursday Call to Worship

(by the Rev. Kelly Burd, UCC Worship Ways, used with permission)

Come and remember the love of Jesus, gathered at table with his friends.

We come to receive from Christ the bread of life, the cup of blessing;

Come, receive the tender service Christ offers each of us;

We come to receive the challenge of the new commandment: “Love one another.”

Come and contemplate the many temptations

of a world that would entice us, like Judas, to betray the trust of a suffering God.

We come to travel with Jesus the way of the Cross, 

so that our Easter alleluias” will take on new meaning.

Let us worship together and reflect upon the life of Christ,

May we remember what discipleship may cost, and where you have called us.
