Contemporary Call to Worship, Lent 3B

Here’s a contemporary call to worship litany based on two of the suggested scripture readings for the third Sunday of Lent (March 11, 2012)—Psalm 19 and 1 Corinthians 1: 18-25.  It comes from the Ministry Matters website. 

Gathering Words
(based on Psalm 19, 1 Corinthians 1: 18-25)

The world finds no proof of God.
But the heavens tell of God’s glory.
God’s message is foolishness to the world.
But God’s folly trumps human wisdom.
The freedom of the world brings us death.
But obedience to God’s ways brings life.
We gather in the name of Christ crucified.
The Word made flesh brings life to God’s people!
