I'm familiar with writing prayers but I don't really know where to start with writing a call and response. This is my "rough draft" for the Invocation... please critique it for me... or at least tell me your thoughts.
One: Jesus said, "take up your cross, and follow me"
ALL: WITH GOD'S SON AS OUR EXAMPLE, WE WILL WALK HUMBLY WITH OUR GOD... EVEN TO DEATH
One: "I lay down my life only to take it up again."
ALL: RAISE US UP WITH CHRIST, OH SPIRIT OF GOD.
One: "As the father has sent me, now I am sending you" to live, to love, and to serve.
ALL: FOR THE OLD ORDER OF THINGS HAS PASSED AWAY. "BEHOLD, I AM
MAKING ALL THINGS NEW."
