Call to Worship     Psalm 78:23-29      In Unison

     Yet he commanded the skies above, and opened the doors of heaven; he rained down on them manna to eat, and gave them grain of heaven. Mortals ate of the bread of angels; he sent them food in abundance. He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens, and by his power he led out the south wind; he rained flesh upon them like dust, winged birds like the sand of the seas; he let them fall within their camp, all around their dwellings. And they ate and were well filled, for he gave them what they craved.
