Litany for Year B, Proper 11

Call to Worship 2015-07-19
One: Come away -- to a deserted place -- and rest a while,
All: From the comings and goings, from the busy-ness of life...
One: Come away -- by green pastures and still waters -- and restore your soul.
All: Find a quiet place in which to center yourself.
One: Come away and prepare your hearts to do God's healing work in our world.
All: We center ourselves, and find a quietness where we can worship God. Amen.
