Call to Celebration
P: We will praise God as long as we live!
L: God brings justice to the oppressed and sets the prisoners free.
P: God gives food to the hungry and opens the eyes of the blind.
L: God watches over the stranger, as with Ruth in the Bible.
P: God upholds the orphan and the widow, as with Naomi.
L: God lifts up those who are bowed down.
All: Let us sing praises to our God!
from Psalm 146:1-10 and Ruth 1:1-18
