Pentecost Year B

Pr26OT 31P+21

Call to Worship

Based upon Matthew 22:34-40 (Mark 12:28-34, Luke 10:25ff). Katherine Hawker, 2002.

Once upon a time

a wise man offered a challenge;

"What is the greatest commandment?"

 

The calendars on our desks share a vision of greatness;

bills to pay, phone calls to return, appointments to keep.

Love the Lord your God.

 

The cameras of our memories share what commands us;

children to bathe and partners to help

parents calling and grandchildren hopeful.

Love the Lord your God

with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

 

Still the Spirit lures us to new priorities;

open spaces to experience wonder,

strangers becoming friends,

devotion to that which transcends.

Love the Lord your God

with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.

Love your neighbor as yourself.
