Call to Worship: Proper 14 A

Here’s is a wonderful call to worship written by Thom Shuman.  Check out his Lectionary Liturgies blog for many other great resources for August 7, 2011 (Proper 14A).

Call to Worship
(based on Gen. 37:1-4,12-28; Ps.105:1-6, 16-22, 45b; Rom.10:5-15; Matt. 14:22-33)

Here, in this place,
God welcomes all the dreamers, as well as the doubters:
here, the worriers and wanderers can call on God by name.
Here, in this time, we can remember all the ways God has graced us:
here, in these moments, we are reminded that God is with us, always!
Here are gathered those daring enough to step out of comfort into the unknown:
here, in this faith space,
we will find the courage to cry out, 'God, save us!'
in every situation.
