Call to Worship: Proper 18 B

Here’s a contemporary call to worship based on James 2:1-17 and Psalm 125 – two of the suggested scripture readings for Proper 18 B (the fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost).  It comes from The Abingdon Worship Annual.

Contemporary Gathering Words
(inspired by James 2:1-17, Psalm 125, The Message)

We can trust God.
God is like the mountain: rock solid.
God loves all the people:
the poor, the disabled, the outcast, the stranger.
We can depend on God.
God feeds the hungry, heals the sick,
and restores relationships.
Praise our Loving God.
Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
