Contemporary Call to Worship: Psalm 30

Here’s a contemporary call to worship based on the scripture texts for the sixth Sunday after Epiphany (February 12, 2012).  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Call to Worship
(based on Psalm 30)

At night,
when our cries for help echo off our walls,
you hear us;
you turn our tears into rivers of joy,
Listener of our hearts.
Each day,
as our fears push us closer to the edge of loneliness;
you tug us back into the safety of your grace,
Servant of the suffering.
Every time we stumble over our efforts to be perfect;
you pull us to our feet to learn new dance steps of hope,
Peace of our souls.
