Opening Litany for book of Ruth, Narrative lectionary

Worship Leader: When life seems to be turned against us and we find ourselves in despair, know that the Lord has given you the gift of the people of God.

People Gathered: Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; your people shall be my people, and your God my God.

Worship Leader: When life has turned against you and you feel like a stranger in a strange land, know that the Lord has given you the gift of the people of God.

People Gathered: If you are thirsty, come and drink.  If you are hungry come and eat. When you feel alone, come and know you are surrounded by the people of God.

Worship Leader: When you are afraid and you know not where to turn, know that the Lord has given you the gift of the people of God.

People Gathered: May you have a full reward from the Lord under whose wings you have come for refuge!”  And may you know that you too are a child of God.

Worship Leader: When you are worried what tomorrow may bring, know that the Lord has given you the gift of the people of God.


People Gathered: May you know that you are welcome in the family of God in the midst of despair, isolation, fear and want and may you be known as restorers of life and nourishers of souls.
