To His Servanthood by Raymond A. Foss

In our words, in our deeds
each of us called
by the wooing of the Spirit
God calling to us
Christ, our brother,
to his servanthood
the way of sacrifice,
the way of the cross

Out of our comfort
turning from our past
joining the chorus
the saints who came before
all of creation
in service, in praise
to our God and king

Starting on our journey
up onto the waters
on the dusty byways
bringing Christ with us
His Spirit indwelling
spreading his message,
God’s love everlasting,
for the whole world

June 10, 2010
after reading
Mission Statement of First Congregational Church of Pembroke, UCC
“The mission of our church is to follow God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit,
spreading the legacy of faith and fellowship to all we meet in word and deed.”
