Contemporary Call to Worship: Easter 5B

Here’s a contemporary call to worship based on Psalm 22 and 1 John 4, two of the suggested scripture readings for the fifth Sunday of Easter (Year B).  They come from the Ministry Matters website.

Gathering Words
(based on Psalm 22, 1 John 4)

As the weak realize their strength;
as the poor eat and are satisfied,
God’s love abides in us.
As the stranger finds a friend;
as the family offers forgiveness,
God’s love abides in us.
As the ends of the earth know of Christ’s grace,
God’s love abides in us.
