We Seek Your Presence Among Us

Call to Worship

But if two sit together, and there are between them words of Torah,

the Divine Presence rests between them.

We seek your presence among us, O God.

Three who have eaten at one table and have said over it words of Torah

are as if they had eaten from the table of God.

We seek your presence among us, O God.

If ten sit together and occupy themselves in Torah,

the Divine Presence rests among them.

We seek your presence among us, O God.

Where two or three are gathered in my name,

I am here among them.

O Lord, come and fill us with your presence.

Adapted from Mishnah 'Abot 3.3-4,6 and Matthew 18:20 by Dennis Smith,
