Here’s a contemporary call to worship inspired by the scripture readings for Proper 7 B (Mark 4:35-41; 1 Samuel 17:32-49, 2 Corinthians 6:1-13). It was written by Katherine Hawker.
Contemporary Call to Worship
Strength is commanding the wind and sea to obey,
Strength is wielding a slingshot in the face of a raging giant.
Strength is accepting vulnerability from inside the boat,
Strength is standing in solidarity with the powerless.
Strength is turning a cheek,
Strength is loving an enemy.
We come to worship
a God who redefines our vision of strength.
