Hymn: TiS 136 1. There’s a wideness in God’s mercy like the wideness of the sea, and forgiveness in his justice sealed for us on Calvary.

4. But we make his love too narrow by false limits of our own, and we magnify his strictness with a zeal he will not own.

2. There is plentiful redemption in the blood that has been shed; there is joy for all the members in the sorrows of the Head.

5. If our love were but more simple we should take him at his word; and our lives would be illumined by the goodness of our Lord. Frederick William Faber 1814–63 alt.

3. For the love of God is broader than the measures of our mind; and the heart of the Eternal is most wonderfully kind.

Greeting:

The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.

(see Ruth 2:4)

Sentence: It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I live now in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2.20

2


Prayer of Preparation: As we gather as God's people let us pray together: Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom 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 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.’

Kyrie eleison (Kew Setting)

3


The Confession Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith, confident in God's forgiveness. Merciful God, our maker and our judge, we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, and in what we have failed to do: we have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves; we repent, and are sorry for all our sins. Father, forgive us. Strengthen us to love and obey you in newness of life; 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.

4


Prayer of the Day Christ Jesus, whose glory was poured out like perfume, and who chose for our sake to take the form of a slave: may we also pour out our love with holy extravagance, that our lives may be fragrant with you. Amen.

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD Readings from 'New Revised Standard Version' (NRSV) First Reading: 1 Kings 21.1-10, 15-21a 1

Later the following events took place: Naboth the Jezreelite had a vineyard in Jezreel, beside the palace of King Ahab of Samaria. 2 And Ahab said to Naboth, ‘Give me your vineyard, so that I may have it for a vegetable garden, because it is near my house; I will give you a better vineyard for it; or, if it seems good to you, I will give you its value in money.’ 3 But Naboth said to Ahab, ‘The Lord forbid that I should give you my ancestral inheritance.’ 4 Ahab went home resentful and sullen because of what Naboth the Jezreelite had said to him; for he had said, ‘I will not give you my ancestral inheritance.’ He lay down on his bed, turned away his face, and would not eat. 5 His wife Jezebel came to him and said, ‘Why are you so depressed that you will not eat?’ 6 He said to her, ‘Because I spoke to Naboth the Jezreelite and said to him, “Give me your vineyard for money; or else, if you prefer, I will give you another vineyard for it”; but he answered, “I will not give you my vineyard.” ’ 7 His wife Jezebel said to him, ‘Do you now govern Israel? Get up, eat some food, and be cheerful; I will give you the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite.’ 8 So she wrote letters in Ahab’s name and sealed them with his seal; she sent the letters to the elders and the nobles who lived with Naboth in his city. 9 She wrote in the letters, ‘Proclaim a fast, and seat Naboth at the head of the assembly; 10 seat two scoundrels opposite him, and have them bring a charge against him, saying, “You have cursed God and the king.” Then take him out, and stone him to death.’ 15 As soon as Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned and was dead, Jezebel said to Ahab, ‘Go, take possession of the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, which he refused to give you for money; for Naboth is not alive, but dead.’16 As soon as Ahab heard that Naboth was dead, Ahab set out to go down to the vineyard of Naboth the Jezreelite, to take possession of it.17 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah the Tishbite, saying: 18 Go down to meet King Ahab of Israel, who rules in Samaria; he is now in the vineyard of Naboth, where he has gone to take possession. 19 You shall say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord: Have you killed, and also taken possession?’ You shall say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord: In the place where dogs licked up the blood of Naboth, dogs will also lick up your blood.’ 20 Ahab said to Elijah, ‘Have you found me, O my enemy?’ He answered, ‘I have found you. Because you have sold yourself to do what is evil in the sight of the Lord , 21 I will bring disaster on you; I will consume you, and will cut off from Ahab every male, bond or free, in Israel; Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD 6


Psalm: 5.1-7 1 Hear my words, O Lord, give heed to my groaning: listen to my cry, you that are my king and my God. 2 In the morning when I pray to you, surely you will hear my voice: at daybreak I lay my prayers before you, and look up. 3 For you are not a God who takes pleasure in wickedness: nor can any evil dwell with you. 4 The boastful cannot stand in your sight: you hate all those that work mischief. 5 Those who speak lies you destroy: you abhor the treacherous, O Lord, and those that are stained with blood. 6 But because of your great goodness I will come into your house: I will bow down toward your holy temple in awe and fear of you. 7 Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness, for my enemies lie in wait: make straight your way before me.

Second Reading: Galatians 2.15-21 15

We ourselves are Jews by birth and not Gentile sinners; 16 yet we know that a person is justified not by the works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ. And we have come to believe in Christ Jesus, so that we might be justified by faith in Christ, and not by doing the works of the law, because no one will be justified by the works of the law. 17 But if, in our effort to be justified in Christ, we ourselves have been found to be sinners, is Christ then a servant of sin? Certainly not! 18 But if I build up again the very things that I once tore down, then I demonstrate that I am a transgressor. 19 For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live to God. I have been crucified with Christ;20 and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21 I do not nullify the grace of God; for if justification comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing. Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD

Gradual Hymn: TiS 546 1. Lord Jesus, think on me, and purge away my sin; from earthbound passions set me free, and make me pure within. 2. Lord Jesus, think on me by care and woe oppressed; let me your loving servant be, and taste your promised rest. 3. Lord Jesus, think on me, amid the bitter strife; through all my pain and misery become my health and life. 4. Lord Jesus, think on me, nor let me go astray; through darkness and perplexity point to the heavenly way. 5. Lord Jesus, think on me, that, when the trial is past, I may your radiant glory see, and share your joy at last. Synesius of Cyrene c.375–430 tr. Allen William Chatfield 1808–96 alt.

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 Luke chapter 7 beginning at the 36th verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST.

7 36 One of the Pharisees asked Jesus to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee’s house and took his place at the table. 37 And a woman in the city, who was a sinner, having learned that he was eating in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster jar of ointment. 38 She stood behind him at his feet, weeping, and began to bathe his feet with her tears and to dry them with her hair. Then she continued kissing his feet and anointing them with the ointment. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw it, he said to himself, ‘If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what kind of woman this is who is touching him—that she is a sinner.’ 40 Jesus spoke up and said to him, ‘Simon, I have something to say to you.’ ‘Teacher,’ he replied, ‘speak.’ 41 ‘A certain creditor had two debtors; one owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 When they could not pay, he cancelled the debts for both of them. Now which of them will love him more?’43 Simon answered, ‘I suppose the one for whom he cancelled the greater debt.’ And Jesus said to him, ‘You have judged rightly.’ 44 Then turning towards the woman, he said to Simon, ‘Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has bathed my feet with her tears and dried them with her hair. 45 You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her sins, which were many, have been forgiven; hence she has shown great love. But the one to whom little is forgiven, loves little.’ 48 Then he said to her, ‘Your sins are forgiven.’ 49 But those who were at the table with him began to say among themselves, ‘Who is this who even forgives sins?’50 And he said to the woman, ‘Your faith has saved you; go in peace.’ 8 1 Soon afterwards he went on through cities and villages, proclaiming and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God. The 9


twelve were with him, 2 as well as some women who had been cured of evil spirits and infirmities: Mary, called Magdalene, from whom seven demons had gone out, 3 and Joanna, the wife of Herod’s steward Chuza, and Susanna, and many others, who provided for them out of their resources.

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

The Nicene Creed Let us together affirm the faith of the Church. We believe in one God, the Father, the almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

11

Final Hymn: TiS 531 1. Sent forth by God’s blessing, our true faith confessing, the people of God from his table take leave. The supper is ended: may now be extended the fruits of his service in all who believe. The seed of his teaching, our hungry souls reaching, shall blossom in action for all humankind. His grace shall incite us, his love shall unite us to work for his kingdom, his purpose to find. 2. With praise and thanksgiving to God ever-living the tasks of our everyday life we will face, our faith ever sharing, in love ever caring, embracing as neighbours all those of each race. One feast that has fed us, one light that has led us, unite us as one in his life that we share. Then may all the living, with praise and thanksgiving, give honour to Christ and his name that we bear. Omer Westendorf 1916– alt. Text © Copyright 1964, World Library Publications, a division of J.
