Here’s a call to worship from Martha Spong’s Reflectionary website. It was inspired by John 20:1 and Psalm 118: 19-23.
Call to Worship
(inspired by John 20:1 and Psalm 118:19-23)
One: Early on the first day of the week…
Two: Open to us your gates of righteousness,
All: That we may enter through them
and give thanks to the Lord.
One: While it was still dark…
Two: This is the gate of the Lord;
All: The righteous shall enter through it.
One: Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw…
Two: We thank you that you have answered us;
All: We thank you that you have become our salvation.
One: …that the stone had been removed from the tomb.
Two: The stone that the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.
All: This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes!
