Contemporary Call to Worship: Easter 7B

Here’s a contemporary call to worship for the seventh Sunday of Easter.  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Call to Worship
(John 17:18)

From comfortable pews,
from tricycle seats,
from easy chairs in front of TVs:
God gathers us in
to give us the words
to proclaim the gospel.
At kitchen sinks,
at laptops and blackboards,
at nursing stations:
Christ calls us to share
in serving all creation.
In communities gathered to pray,
in memories of those who served,
in families grilling in the backyard:
The Holy Spirit fills us
with God's joy.
