Here’s a contemporary call to worship based on Psalm 126.  

Contemporary Gathering Words
(based on Psalm 126)

What are your dreams, people of God?

To be filled with laughter;
to cry with joy, not with sorrow.

What are your hopes, people of God?

To be free of the chains that bind us;
to shout with thanksgiving, not with anguish.

Rejoice, people of God; here and now,
God makes our hopes and dreams come true.
