Call to Worship: Proper 17 B

Here’s a contemporary call to worship for Proper 17 B.  It was written by Thom Shuman.

Contemporary Call to Worship
(inspired by Song of Solomon 2:8-13, James 1:17-27)

Here, our Beloved speaks to us;
the voice of our Beloved sounds
in our hearts:
calling us to generous acts,
to share the gifts we have been given.

Now, our Beloved speaks to us;
the voice of our Beloved sounds
in our land:
calling us to generous acts,
to open our hearts to all in need.

In every place, in every moment,
our Beloved speaks to us;
the voice of our Beloved sounds
in all creation:
calling us to generous acts,
to stand with God's people:
the least, the lost, the little, the last.
