Call to Worship: Proper 9A


Here is a possible call to worship for July 3, 2011 (the third Sunday after Pentecost), based on Matthew 11:28-30, one of the suggested lectionary texts for that day. 


Call to Worship
(based on Matthew 11:28-30)

We have gathered in this place to worship,
because Jesus invites us to come!
We come as we are,
with our faith and our doubts,
with our successes and our failures,
because Jesus invites us to come!
We come with what we have,
bringing with us the events and experiences of this past week,
because Jesus invites us to come.

Come to me,
all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me;
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.

Let’s worship God together.
