The focus of tonight's Good Friday worship was the text from James 2:14 "Faith without works is dead...". I have often struggled with James, but tonight I am seeing it a little different. From our faith, we have a responsibility, we are called. Tonight, as I ponder 'rejected', I think about Jesus' death on the cross, and our responsibility that comes from that. I would like to share the lyrics to one of my favorite hymns: We Are Called

1. Come! live in the light!
Shine with the joy and the love of the Lord!
We are called to be light for the kingdom,
to live in the freedom of the city of God!

Refrain: We are called to act with justice.
We are called to love tenderly.
We are called to serve one another, to walk humbly with God.

2. Come! Open your heart!
Show your mercy to all those in fear!
We are called to be hope for the hopeless,
so all hatred and blindness will be no more!

3. Sing! Sing a new song!
Sing of that great day when all will be one!
God will reign and we'll walk with each other as sisters
and brothers united in love!
