Contemporary Call to Worship: Proper 8 B

Here’s a contemporary call to worship based on the scripture readings for Proper 8 B.  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Contemporary Call to Worship
(inspired by Mark 5:21-43)
With friends and strangers,
with family and neighbors, we gather:
Come among us, Healing God,
with that love which never ends.
With faith reaching out to touch,
with hearts straining to trust, we hope:
Come among us, Friend of the broken,
with your compassion which makes us whole.
With word and wonder,
with silence and song, we wait:
Come among us, Dryer of our tears,
to lift us to our feet to follow you.
