Call to Worship
L: Jesus took the five loaves and the two fish.
P: The LORD is gracious and merciful.
L: Jesus looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves,
P: The LORD is good, and has compassion over all the earth.
L: Jesus gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.
P: The LORD raises up all who are bowed down.
L: All ate and were filled;
All: God is gracious and merciful! Thanks be to God!
from Matthew 14: 13-21 and Psalm 145
