Call to Worship: Isaiah 61

Here’s a call to worship based on Isaiah 61: 1-4 (Luke 4: 18-19). It was written by Moira Laidlaw.

Call to Worship
(based on Isaiah 61: 1-4, Luke 4: 18-19)

The prophet Isaiah proclaimed—and Jesus embodied—God’s call to reach out and care for those who  are brokenhearted and those who mourn, people who are abused and oppressed,  who are powerless to make changes for good in their lives. The Spirit of the Lord empowers and anoints us to proclaim and to live out that same message—to lift up those who are downtrodden, to comfort those who mourn, to be bearers of the gospel in word and deed.
