Welcome, everyone!
It is **good** to be gathered together by God in worship this morning.

You come in from a week of striving
Working, pushing, pulling, worrying, celebrating, producing….

Perhaps your hands are calloused, blistered, or arthritic
From the physical labor or crafting God has called you to.

Perhaps your feet ache and need a massage
From the steady care-giving or customer service God has called you to.

Perhaps your mind has not stopped racing
From the business decisions and staff members God has called you to tend to.

Perhaps your heart hurts
From the friends, family, or clients God has called you to walk with

To all of you, named or unnamed, hear God’s call
To come and find rest in his presence.
