Collect: The Second Sunday After Epiphany
Almighty God, whose Son our Savior Jesus Christ is the light of the world: Grant that your people, illuminated by your Word and Sacraments, may shine with radiance of Christ’s glory, that he may be known, worshiped, and obeyed to the ends of the earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, now and forever. Amen
Isaiah 49:1-7 . . . the servant of the Lord reflects movingly on his mission — its sorrows and frustrations — and God’s high calling and promise to be with him.
