This weekend marks the retirement of Ray Ortlund – pastor of Immanuel Church in Nashville. I’m hoping to have Ray on the podcast at some point in 2020.
Recently the church shared the call to worship that ray uses at the start of services. It exudes the grace of God and is well worth a listen. In fact, if you are a church leader I imagine Ray won’t mind if you borrow it for this Sunday morning!
To all who are weary and need rest;
To all who mourn and long for comfort;
To all who fail and desire strength;
And to all who sin and need a Savior —
This church opens wide her red doors in the name of Jesus,
The friend of sinners.
