Call to Celebration
P: There were no people and no animals.
L: There were no trees and no flowers.
P: There were no mountains and no valleys.
L: And it was dark. But God said, "Let there be light."
P: And there was light. And God saw that the light was good.
L: God called the light day,
P: And the darkness night.
L: So evening came and then morning.
All: This was the first day. Amen.
from Genesis 1:1-5
