Call to Worship Litany: Who will hear?

Here’s a litany based on Mark 6: 1-13, the suggested gospel reading for Proper 9 B (Ordinary 14 B), the sixth Sunday of Pentecost.  It was written by Rev. Dr. Laurel Koepf Taylor.

Litany
(based on Mark 6: 1-13)

The prophets of old spoke of God’s justice,
even when it was unwelcome. 
Who will hear their message?
We will listen and we will hear!

Responding to God’s call, Jesus traveled,
preaching and teaching all who would listen. 
Who will hear his message?
We will listen and we will hear!

Christ sent out disciples two by two,
to spread the good news in any place
that would welcome them.
Who will hear their message?
We will listen and we will hear!

God’s prophets are among us still,
around the world and in these pews.
Who will hear their message?
We will listen and we will hear!
