Leader:   O Lord open our lips

All:         and sustain us with your life-giving Spirit.

             

Hymn or song: 521    My song is love unknown

My song is love unknown,

My Saviour’s love to me:

Love to the loveless shown,

That they might lovely be.

O who am I, that for my sake

My Lord should take frail flesh and die?

 

He came from His blessed throne,

Salvation to bestow;

But men made strange, and none

The longed-for Christ would know:

But O! my Friend, my Friend indeed,

Who at my need His life did spend.

 

Sometimes they strew His way,

And His sweet praises sing;

Resounding all the day

Hosannas to their King:

Then ‘Crucify!’ is all their breath,

And for His death they thirst and cry.

 

Here might I stay and sing,

No story so divine;

Never was love, dear King!

Never was grief like Thine.

This is my Friend, in whose sweet praise

I all my days could gladly spend.

                                                Samuel Crossman

 

Leader:   O God, who calls all life into being,
All:        The earth, sea and sky are yours.

Leader:   Your presence is all around us,

All:        Your Spirit enlivens all who walk the earth,

              With her we yearn for justice to be done,

              For creation to be freed from bondage,

              For the hungry to be fed,

              For captives to be released,

              For your kingdom of peace to come on earth.

 

Confession                                                  

The Spirit of the Lord fills the world and knows every word and deed.

Let us then open ourselves to the Lord and confess our sin in penitence and faith.

 

              We have not always worshiped God, our creator.

All:        Lord, have mercy.

 

              We have not always followed Christ our Saviour.

All:        Christ, have mercy.

 

              We have not always trusted in the Spirit, our guide.

All:        Lord have mercy.

May the Father forgive us by the death of his Son and strengthen us to live in the power of the Spirit all our days.

All: Amen.

 

The Collect

 

              Holy Spirit, sent by the Father,

              ignite in us your holy fire;

              Strengthen your children with the gift of faith,

              Revive your church with the breath of love,

              And renew the face of the earth,

              Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

              Amen.

 

 

Readings:                                                                        sit for the reading

Galatians 5: 22-24

22 By contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against such things. 24 And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

1 Corinthians 14: 1-5

1Pursue love and strive for the spiritual gifts, and especially that you may prophesy. For those who speak in a tongue do not speak to other people but to God; for nobody understands them, since they are speaking mysteries in the Spirit. On the other hand, those who prophesy speak to other people for their building up and encouragement and consolation. Those who speak in a tongue build up themselves, but those who prophesy build up the church. Now I would like all of you to speak in tongues, but even more to prophesy. One who prophesies is greater than one who speaks in tongues, unless someone interprets, so that the church may be built up.

 

Matthew 3: 11-12

11 ‘I baptize you with water for repentance, but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing-fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing-floor and will gather his wheat into the granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire.’

 

              This is the word of the Lord.                    

All:               Thanks be to God.

                                                                                                                                       

Hymn or song: 73      Bind us Together Lord

Bind us together, Lord,

Bind us together

With cords that cannot be broken.

Bind us together, Lord,

Bind us together,

Bind us together with love.

 

There is only one God,

There is only one King;

There is only one Body,

That is why we sing:

 

Made for the glory of God,

Purchased by His precious Son;

Born with the right to be clean,

For Jesus the victory has won.

 

You are the family of God,

You are the promise divine;

You are God’s chosen desire,

You are the glorious new wine.

Prayers  (end with Lord’s Prayer)

 

We say the Lord’s Prayer together

              Our Father in heaven,

              Hallowed be your name,

              Your kingdom come,

              Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,

              Give us today our daily bread,

              Forgive us our sins,

              As we forgive those who sin against us,

              Save us in the time of trial

              And deliver us from evil,

              For the kingdom, the power and the glory are        yours, now and forever. Amen.

 

 

The Power of Love                         The following responsory MAY be used

 

Leader:   Out of death came life

All:        and good defeated evil.

              An empty cross and an empty tomb,

              A nail mark shown and a presence known.

 

Leader:   Out of sorrow came joy,

All:        and God sent the Spirit:

Leader:   coming like fire to all people and all ages,

All:        coming to birth in the water of life.

 

Leader:   Out of difference came unity

All:        and God’s people were called:

Leader:   Called to receive him in bread and wine.

All:        Called to be free in the power of love.

 

Leader:   For when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,

              You will be filled with power

All:        and be witnesses for Christ to the ends of the          earth.

             

Hymn or song: 491    Love Divine

Love divine, all loves excelling,

Joy of heaven to earth come down!

Fix in us Thy humble dwelling,

All Thy faithful mercies crown.

Jesus, Thou art all compassion,

Pure unbounded love Thou art;

Visit us with Thy salvation,

Enter every trembling heart.

 

Come, Almighty to deliver,

Let us all Thy grace receive;

Suddenly return, and never,

Never more Thy temples leave.

Thee we would be always blessing,

Serve Thee as Thy hosts above,

Pray, and praise Thee without ceasing,

Glory in Thy perfect love.

 

Finish then Thy new creation,

Pure and spotless let us be;

Let us see Thy great salvation

Perfectly restored in Thee!

Changed from glory into glory,

Till in heaven we take our place;

Till we cast our crowns before Thee,

Lost in wonder, love and praise.

                                                              Charles Wesley

      

 

Blessing:

             

              May Christ’s holy, healing, enabling Spirit be with you        and guide you on your way at every change and turn;

              And the blessing of God almighty,

              The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

              Be with you and remain with you always, Amen.

 

All:        Filled with the Spirit’s power,

              We go in the light and peace of Christ.
