Scripture: Isaiah 40:27-31
Gathering Check-In
Call to Worship & Candle Lighting:

Do you not know? Have you not heard?

The Holy One is the everlasting God,

creator of heaven and earth.

God’s energy flows through the world,

Even when we are bone-tired.

God’s power gives strength

To the vulnerable and weak.

Do you not know? Have you not heard?

When we wait on the Holy One,

God will renew our strength.

We shall run. We shall fly.

We shall walk boldly together 

Toward the promises of God.
