Gathering Hymn        

Praise to the Lord

Verse 1
Praise to the Lord the Almighty the King of creation
O my soul praise Him
For He is thy health and salvation
All ye who hear now to His temple draw near
Join me in glad adoration

Verse 2
Praise to the Lord who o'er all things
So wondrously reigneth
Shielded thee under His wings
Yea so gently sustaineth
Hast thou not seen how thy desires have been
Granted in what He ordaineth

Verse 3
Praise to the Lord O let all that is in me adore Him
All that hath life and breath
Come now with praises before Him
All ye who hear now to His temple draw near
Ponder anew what 
the Almighty can do
Let the amen sound 
from His people again
Gladly forever adore Him

Gathering Prayer 

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all. 
And also with you. 

Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, 
and from you no secrets are hidden. Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy name; through Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Collect

Almighty God, your Son Jesus Christ has taught us that what we do for the least of your children we do also for him. Give us the will to serve others as he was the servant of all, who gave up his life and died for us, but lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Liturgy of the Word

The First Reading: Leviticus 25:38-46

38 I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.

39 “If your brother becomes poor beside you and sells himself to you, you shall not make him serve as a slave: 40 he shall be with you as a hired worker and as a sojourner. He shall serve with you until the year of the jubilee. 41 Then he shall go out from you, he and his children with him, and go back to his own clan and return to the possession of his fathers. 42 For they are my servants, whom I brought out of the land of Egypt; they shall not be sold as slaves. 43 You shall not rule over him ruthlessly but shall fear your God. 44 As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are around you. 45 You may also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their clans that are with you, who have been born in your land, and they may be your property. 46 You may bequeath them to your sons after you to inherit as a possession forever. You may make slaves of them, but over your brothers the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another ruthlessly.

This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

The Second Reading: Philemon 8-20

8 Accordingly, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do what is required, 9 yet for love's sake I prefer to appeal to you—I, Paul, an old man and now a prisoner also for Christ Jesus— 10 I appeal to you for my child, Onesimus,[a] whose father I became in my imprisonment. 11 (Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is indeed useful to you and to me.) 12 I am sending him back to you, sending my very heart. 13 I would have been glad to keep him with me, in order that he might serve me on your behalf during my imprisonment for the gospel, 14 but I preferred to do nothing without your consent in order that your goodness might not be by compulsion but of your own accord. 15 For this perhaps is why he was parted from you for a while, that you might have him back forever, 16 no longer as a bondservant[b] but more than a bondservant, as a beloved brother—especially to me, but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord.

17 So if you consider me your partner, receive him as you would receive me. 18 If he has wronged you at all, or owes you anything, charge that to my account. 19 I, Paul, write this with my own hand: I will repay it—to say nothing of your owing me even your own self. 20 Yes, brother, I want some benefit from you in the Lord. Refresh my heart in Christ.

This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Gospel Reading:

Luke 10:25-37

The Lord be with you
And with thy spirit
The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to LUKE
Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ 

25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 He said to him, “What is written in the Law? How do you read it?” 27 And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.” 28 And he said to him, “You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live.”

29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbour?” 30 Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, ‘Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.’ 36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbour to the man who fell among the robbers?” 37 He said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.”

The Gospel of Christ
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

The Apostles Creed

The congregations stands  

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

 

The Prayers of the People

The Confession

The Priest calls the people to confession, then all say together.

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us, that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your name. Amen.

The Priest prays the Absolution

Offertory Hymn

Be Thou My Vision

Verse 1
Be thou my vision O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me save that thou art
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping thy presence my light

Verse 2
Riches I heed not nor man's empty praise
Thou mine inheritance now and always
Thou and thou only first in my heart
High King of heaven my treasure thou art

Grant heaven's joy to me bright heaven's sun
Christ of my own heart whatever befall
Still be my vision O ruler of all

Tethered to the Cross

Verse 1
Tho winds of change blow bitter
I will not fear the winter
My faith won't bend or wither
I'm tethered to the cross

Verse 2
Should wanderlust entice me
His compass true will guide me
Back where his love will hide me
I'm tethered to the cross

Chorus 1
Here and now and age to age
My grateful song will be the same
Thank you thank you I've been saved
I'm tethered to the cross

Verse 3
When troubles roll like breakers
So full of dread and dangers
My victory's in the Savior
I'm tethered to the cross

Verse 4
Tomorrow looms uncertain
With untold joy and burdens
I'll walk with strength and fervour
I'm tethered to the cross

Chorus 1
Here and now and age to age
My grateful song will be the same

I'm tethered to the cross

Verse 5
When through the valley's shadowed
I fight my final battle
I'll rise in Christ unshackled
Tethered to the cross

Hallelujah oh my soul!
He will not ever let me go
Hell may rage but it will hold
I'm tethered to the cross
