Hymn: TiS 698 – ODE TO JOY 1. When the light of first creation pierced the lonely darkness through, earth became life’s habitation, tree and seed and creature grew. Man and woman were created as the crown of all the earth; God’s own image deep within them brought the gift of love to birth. 2. Joyful day of celebration now, as when the world began, day when God, with love and blessing, joins a woman and a man. Happy day of new beginnings, promises enfold the two; each to give, in joy and sorrow, faithful love, the journey through. 3. Praise the Father, Love eternal, ever ready to forgive; praise the Son and Holy Spirit, giving faith and hope to live: gifts of love to guard their union, guide their venture all life long. Lord, inspire them with your vision; fill their living with your song. Words © S. F. Ludgater Arrangement © Australian Hymn Book Co Shirley F. Ludgater 1937–

Greeting: The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU. (see Ruth 2:4)

Prayer of Preparation: As we gather as God's people let us pray together: God of love and peace, you know what we think and feel. Touch our hearts that our thoughts and actions may be good so that we may love you and honour you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, AMEN.

The Summary of the Commandments: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ Jesus said: ‘This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: you shall love your neighbour as yourself.’

4


The Confession Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith, confident in God's forgiveness. God of mercy and grace, we have sometimes thought wrong things, and done wrong things and we have not always loved each other as we should. We are sorry. Forgive us and help us to love and obey you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Absolution {Celebrant} Almighty God, who has promised forgiveness to all who turn to him in faith: pardon you and set you free from all your sins, strengthen you in all goodness and keep you in eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Gloria – Ushaw Setting (Alan Rees) CHOIR: Glory, Glory to God, Glory to God in the highest, ALL:

and peace to God’s people on earth.

Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father, we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory.

Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world: have mercy on us; you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer.

For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father.

6


Prayer of the Day Cleanse our consciences, O Lord, and enlighten our hearts through the daily presence of your Son Jesus Christ, that when he comes in glory to be our judge we may be found undefiled and acceptable in his sight; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD Readings from 'New Revised Standard Version' (NRSV)

First Reading: James 1:19-22 (CEV) My dear friends, you should be quick to listen and slow to speak or to get angry. If you are angry, you cannot do any of the good things that God wants done. You must stop doing anything wrong or evil. Instead be humble and accept the message that is planted in you to save you. Obey God’s message! Don’t fool yourselves by just listening to it.

Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD

Psalm 45.1-2, 6-9 1

My heart is astir with fine phrases, I make my song for a king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. 2 You are the fairest of men, grace flows from your lips: therefore has God blessed you for ever and ever. 6 Your throne is the throne of God, it endures for ever: and the sceptre of your kingdom is a righteous sceptre. 7 You have loved righteousness and hated evil: therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows. 8 All your garments are fragrant with myrrh, aloes and cassia: music from ivory palaces makes you glad. 9 Kings' daughters are among your noble women: the queen is at your right hand in gold of Ophir.

WE STAND FOR THE READING OF THE HOLY GOSPEL AS A SIGN OF RESPECT AS WE GREET OUR LORD WHO IS PRESENT IN HIS HOLY WORD. The Lord be with you AND ALSO WITH YOU The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to Saint Mark chapter 7 beginning at the 5th verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. The Pharisees and teachers asked Jesus, “Why don’t your disciples obey what our ancestors taught us to do? Why do they eat without washing their hands?” Jesus replied: You are nothing but show-offs! The prophet Isaiah was right when he wrote that God had said, “All of you praise me with your words, but you never really think about me. It is useless for you to worship me, when you teach rules made up by humans.” You disobey God’s commands in order to obey what humans have taught. Jesus called the crowd together again and said, “Pay attention and try to understand what I mean. The food that you put into your mouth doesn’t make you unclean and unfit to worship God. The bad words that come out of your mouth are what make you unclean.” Gospel Response:

This is the gospel of the Lord PRAISE TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST.

TALK Let us together affirm the faith of the Church. We believe in God the Father who made us and loves us. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who saves us and loves us. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who loves us and gives us life.

THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE Let us pray for all people and for the Church throughout the world. Each petition of intercession or thanksgiving concludes with, Lord in your mercy, HEAR OUR PRAYER. Reader 1: God our Father, we give thanks for the world which you created and have given to us to enjoy. Help us to care for your world. Lord in your mercy: HEAR OUR PRAYER.

Reader 2: We remember those who are sick or lonely; may your spirit bring them comfort. Lord in your mercy: HEAR OUR PRAYER. Adult: We pray for those in need, and for those who care for them: ………. and those we remember in our own hearts and prayers. Lord in your mercy: HEAR OUR PRAYER. Reader 1: We remember those we love who have died and now live with you in heaven. Lord in your mercy: HEAR OUR PRAYER. Reader 2: Almighty God, you have promised to hear our prayers.

Offertory Hymn: TiS 242 – LORD OF THE DANCE 1. I danced in the morning when the world was begun, and I danced in the moon and the stars and the sun; and I came down from heaven and I danced on the earth, at Bethlehem I had my birth: Dance then, wherever you may be; I am the Lord of the dance, said he; and I’ll lead you all where ever you may be, and I’ll lead you all in the dance, said he. 2. I danced for the scribe and the pharisee, but they would not dance and they wouldn’t follow me. I danced for the fishermen, for James and John, they came with me and the dance went on: 3. I danced on the Sabbath and I cured the lame: the holy people said it was a shame. They whipped and they stripped and they hung me high, and they left me there on a cross to die: 4. I danced on a Friday when the sky turned black; it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back. They buried my body and they thought I’d gone; but I am the dance and I still go on: 5. They cut me down and I leap up high, I am the life that’ll never, never die; I’ll live in you as you live in me: I am the Lord of the dance, said he: Sydney Carter 1915–2004 alt.
