Litany for 15 January 2012, MLK, Jr. Sunday

Litany for Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday
15 January 2012

L: Shout out, do not hold back!
P: Lift up your voice like a trumpet!

L: Is not this the fast that God chooses:
to loose the bonds of injustice,
P: to undo the thongs of the yoke,
and let the oppressed go free? 

L: Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
P: and bring the homeless poor into your house?

L: Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,
and your healing shall spring up quickly;
P: Then your light shall rise in the darkness
and your gloom be like the noonday.

L: And you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.
All: Lift up your voice like a trumpet! Amen.          from Isaiah 58

                   Call to Worship by K.K. Hudson-Bates
