Responsive Call to Worship: Mourning Replaced With Singing (based on Psalm 30)

Reader: God, you were there with us in the midst of our troubles.
All: We were down and out.  It felt like troubles were going to overwhelm us.

Reader: Your grace helped us stand our ground and lean into life; no matter how painful.
All: Now, our mournful silence has been replaced with singing.

Reader: Now, our sorrow has been turned into joy, so from deep in our hearts ...
All: Let us sing of our thankfulness for the grace that gets us through.
