Call to Worship: Proper 17 C

Here’s a responsive call to worship inspired by the suggested scripture texts for Proper 17, Year C.  It was written by Eliza Buchakjian-Tweedy of First Church Congregational in Rochester, NH. 

Call to Worship
(inspired by Luke 14:1, 7-14, Hebrews 13:1-6)

Creator God, you call us to hospitality;
to give as generously to others as you have given to us.
For there are angels among us.
Loving God, you call us to give you glory
in the compassion we show to one another.
To love without judgment, of ourselves or of others.
We gather as one Body,
seeking to walk in the way you have set for us.
We gather as one Body,
to worship the one who is Love.
