A Call to Worship for the Third Sunday after Epiphany, Year C

by The Rev. Becky Walker

Because he came to bring good news to the poor;

Let us be bearers of the Good News.

Because he came to proclaim release to the captives;

Let us break the chains of injustice.

Because he came to give vision to those who could not see;

Let us see the world through the lens of compassion and mercy.

Because he came to let the oppressed go free;

Let us overcome systems of intolerance and inequality.

Because he came to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor;

Let us sing the praises of Christ our Lord!




The Rev. Becky Walker serves as Minister of Adult Education at First United Methodist Church, Dallas, Texas.
