Opening sentence

 Jesus unrolled the scroll

and found the place where it was written:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me

because he has anointed me

to bring good news to the poor.”

Call to praise

Lord, open our lips

and our mouths will proclaim your praise.

You are good to those who wait for you,

to all who seek you.

Glory …

Glory to the Father,

and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit:

as it was in the beginning,

is now,

and will be for ever. Amen.

Psalm 33:1-11

 Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous;
it is fitting for the upright to praise him.
 Praise the Lord with the harp;
make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre.
 Sing to him a new song;
    play skillfully, and shout for joy.

 For the word of the Lord is right and true;
he is faithful in all he does.
 The Lord loves righteousness and justice;
the earth is full of his unfailing love.

 By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
their starry host by the breath of his mouth.
 He gathers the waters of the sea into jars[a];
he puts the deep into storehouses.
Let all the earth fear the Lord;
let all the people of the world revere him.

 For he spoke, and it came to be;
he commanded, and it stood firm.

 The Lord foils the plans of the nations;
he thwarts the purposes of the peoples.
 But the plans of the Lord stand firm forever,
the purposes of his heart through all generations
.

Thanksgiving

 My heart is ready, O God;

I will sing your praise.

Your steadfast love is higher than the

heavens,

and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens,

and let your glory shine over all the earth.

Amen.

Call to discipleship

Jesus said, Let anyone with ears to hear listen.

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 neighbor as yourself.

Do this, and you will live.

Lord Jesus, you have the words of eternal life.

Acts 20:20-27

 You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.  I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.

 “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there.  I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me.  However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

 “Now I know that none of you among whom I have gone about preaching the kingdom will ever see me again.  Therefore, I declare to you today that I am innocent of the blood of any of you.  For I have not hesitated to proclaim to you the whole will of God

Message and breakout rooms

Our Father who art in heaven

Our Father who art in heaven,

hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread,

and forgive us our debts,

as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil,

for thine is the kingdom,

and the power, and the glory forever.

Amen.

Benediction

May the Lord direct our hearts

to the love of God

and to the steadfastness of Christ.

Amen.
