Contemporary Call to Worship: Lent 3 B

Here’s a call to worship based on the suggested lectionary texts for the third Sunday of Lent, Year B:  Psalm 19, 1 Corinthians 1:18-25, John 2:13-22.  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Contemporary Call to Worship
(inspired by Psalm 19, 1 Corinthians 1:18-25)

When God speaks, all creation answers:
the pale winter moon cries, 'Glory!'
the sun hums a song as it warms the earth.

When God speaks, lives are changed:
those held hostage by oppression are set free;
the voiceless shout the story of salvation.

When God speaks, everything is turned inside out:
the wise learn the language of grace from little children;
the strong take lessons from the powerless.
