Bring good news


Without words, creation shouts out your glory, O God. With
the words of your law, our souls are revived. Let the words of
our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable to
you, our Rock and our Redeemer.


Leader: As the global people of God—whether Africans,
Europeans, Asians, North Americans, Latin
Americans—we were all baptized into one body and we
were all made to drink of one Spirit.
People: The body does not consist of one member but of many.
Leader: Just as the eye can’t say to the ear, “I don’t need you,”
so also the rich in the global community can’t say to the
poor, “We don’t need you.”
People: And our brothers and sisters in poor countries should
not feel that the gifts they have to offer are less important
than others.
Leader: God has so arranged the body, giving the greater honor
to members considered have-nots so that all members
learn to care for one another.
People: If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member
is honored, all rejoice together.


Go now with the Spirit of the Lord upon you to bring good
news to the poor, to proclaim release to the captives and recovery
of sight to the blind, to help free the oppressed and to
proclaim the good news that God’s reign has already begun.
—Ron Rempel, Waterloo, Ontario
