Call to Celebration:
L: Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked or sit in the seat of scoffers.
P: Happy are those whose delight is in the law of God, who meditate on it day and night.
L: For those who wish to be first must be last of all and servant of all.
P: For those who welcome a child in God’s name, welcome God into their hearts.
L: They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season.
All: Their leaves do not wither, and in all that they do, they flourish.
from Psalm 1:1-3 and Mark 9:30-37
