Call to worship written by Rev. Delana Taylor, Cherokee, Ordained Deacon, OIMC
Walking in the footsteps of our ancestors, listening, praying, singing songs of hope. Their words remind us that despite hardship and injustice,
We are still here, with grateful hearts. God is with us on our journey
Creating in the image of the Creator, we sow and water, tend and harvest with the cycle of the moon and the seasons of the Earth.
We are still here, with humble hearts. God is with us on our journey.
Hearing the voices of those who stepped out in faith from generations past, they call us to shake off the burdens of this life, to sing and to dance.
We are still here, with joyful hearts. God is with us on our journey.
Bound in spirit to one another, through the stories of our people, connected to Creator and earth in a web of relationship, seeking grace and balance in all we do.
We are still here, with hopeful hearts, God be with us on our journey.
