Called Into Reality

At DPC our worship service begins with a "Call to Worship," from the Scriptures.

What is a call to worship?...

"Every call to worship is a call into the Real World....  I encounter such constant and widespread lying about reality each day and meet with such skilled and systematic distortion of the truth that I'm always in danger of losing my grip on reality.  The reality, of course, is that God is sovereign and Christ is savior.  The reality is that prayer is my mother tongue and the eucharist my basic food.  The reality is that baptism, not Myers-Briggs, defines who I am."

~ Eugene H. Peterson, from his book Take & Read
