Sunday 27th January 2014 – Epiphany 3C (3)

Lord of the heavens,

in the life of Jesus

You reminded Your creation

of Your presence, responsibility and care

of all that You have made.

His words and actions

brought good news to the poor,

freedom to prisoners,

sight to the blind and release to the oppressed.

Through His Spirit,

You continue in Your activity

of turning what is secure and familiar over

so that those on the margins of life

might be embraced within Your care.

In all we give

we seek to play our part

knowing that at times

what we are invited to give

may feel uncomfortable

and yet trusting Your purpose

found in the story of Christ.

AMEN.
