526        Lord Jesus Christ, you have come to us

Sentence of the Day

Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for Jesus’ sake will find it. Matthew 10.39

Invitation to Confession

God is steadfast in love and infinite in mercy, welcoming sinners and inviting them to the Lord's table.

Silence may be kept.

Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith, confident in God's forgiveness.

Collect of the Day

O God,

the light of the minds that know you,

the life of the souls that love you,

the strength of the thoughts that seek you:

help us so to know you

that we may truly love you,

and so to love you

that we may fully serve you,

whose service is perfect freedom;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Collect from the Book of Common Prayer for the Second  Sunday after Trinity

O Lord, who never failest to help and govern them who thou dost bring up in thy stedfast fear and love: Keep us, we beseech thee, under the protection of thy good providence, and make us to have a perpetual fear and love of thy holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A reading from 1 Kings beginning to read at chapter 19 verse 15

15 Then the Lord said to him, ‘Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus; when you arrive, you shall anoint Hazael as king over Aram. 16 Also you shall anoint Jehu son of Nimshi as king over Israel; and you shall anoint Elisha son of Shaphat of Abel-meholah as prophet in your place. 19 So he set out from there, and found Elisha son of Shaphat, who was ploughing. There were twelve yoke of oxen ahead of him, and he was with the twelfth. Elijah passed by him and threw his mantle over him. 20 He left the oxen, ran after Elijah, and said, ‘Let me kiss my father and my mother, and then I will follow you.’ Then Elijah said to him, ‘Go back again; for what have I done to you?’ 21 He returned from following him, took the yoke of oxen, and slaughtered them; using the equipment from the oxen, he boiled their flesh, and gave it to the people, and they ate. Then he set out and followed Elijah, and became his servant.

Psalm 16

1 Preserve me, O God:

for in you have I taken refuge.

2 I have said to the Lord, You are my lord:

and all my good depends on you.

3 As for those who are held holy on the earth:

the other gods in whom people delight,

4 Though the idols are many that they run after:

their offerings of blood I will not offer,

nor take their name upon my lips.

5 The Lord is my appointed portion and my cup:

you hold my lot in your hands.

6 The share that has fallen to me is in pleasant places:

and a fair land is my possession.

7 I will bless the Lord who has given me counsel:

at night also he has instructed my heart.

8 I have set the Lord always before me:

he is at my right hand, and I shall not fall.

9 Therefore my heart is glad and my spirit rejoices:

my flesh also shall rest secure.

10 For you will not give me over to the power of death:

nor suffer your faithful one to see the Pit.

11 You will show me the path of life:

in your presence is the fulness of joy,

and from your right hand flow delights for evermore.

Glory to God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit:

as in the beginning, so now, and for ever. Amen.

A reading from Galatians beginning to read at chapter 5 verse 1

1 For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. 13 For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another. 14 For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ 15 If, however, you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another. 16 Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh. 17 For what the flesh desires is opposed to the Spirit, and what the Spirit desires is opposed to the flesh; for these are opposed to each other, to prevent you from doing what you want. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not subject to the law. 19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious: fornication, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, anger, quarrels, dissensions, factions, 21 envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 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. 25 If we live by the Spirit, let us also be guided by the Spirit.

The Holy Gospel according to Luke beginning to read at chapter 9 verse 51

51 When the days drew near for him to be taken up, he set his face to go to Jerusalem. 52 And he sent messengers ahead of him. On their way they entered a village of the Samaritans to make ready for him; 53 but they did not receive him, because his face was set towards Jerusalem. 54 When his disciples James and John saw it, they said, ‘Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them?’ 55 But he turned and rebuked them. 56 Then they went on to another village. 57 As they were going along the road, someone said to him, ‘I will follow you wherever you go.’ 58 And Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.’ 59 To another he said, ‘Follow me.’ But he said, ‘Lord, first let me go and bury my father.’ 60 But Jesus said to him, ‘Let the dead bury their own dead; but as for you, go and proclaim the kingdom of God.’ 61 Another said, ‘I will follow you, Lord; but let me first say farewell to those at my home.’ 62 Jesus said to him, ‘No one who puts a hand to the plough and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.’

Pentecost 3C        [OS 13] - Sunday 26 June 2022

2 Kings 2.1-2, 6-14; Psalm 77.1-2 11-20; Galatians 5.1,13-25; Luke 9.51-62

In his letter to the Galatians, St Paul lists the fruit of the Holy Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. He contrasts them with the 'works of the flesh' - which will lead us to lose our place as an inheritor of the kingdom of God. By working to bring the fruit of the Spirit to the forefront in our lives, we bring ourselves closer to being numbered among the citizens of God's kingdom. If I were to examine myself, would I find areas in my life that I could work on to bring out more of the fruit of the Spirit?

· Jesus Christ, Son of Man, help me to live a life marked by the fruit of your Spirit, so that I may ever come closer to you.

· Give thanks for the Church of Pakistan, remembering especially today their ministry in a predominantly non-Christian context.

Brotherhood of St. Laurence

Generational poverty in Australia is among the key issues the new leader of the Brotherhood of St Laurence hopes to address during his tenure. 

Travers McLeod has been executive director of the Anglican-linked social  justice organisation since late April. 

Through his career Mr McLeod has worked in law and policy, most recently at the Centre for Policy Development. He charts his interest in these fields back to values learnt during his childhood in rural Western Australia. 

Mr McLeod said his initial priority at BSL was to listen and learn, to get a sense of the organisation as a whole – and how it could make a bigger difference in its 10th decade. 

He said his second focus would be on identifying where BSL could make the biggest difference toward helping people who were in poverty or facing disadvantage. He planned to focus especially on making a compelling case as to how Australia could make it less likely that children grew up in poverty.

Indian Christian Day

July 3 has been historically observed as St Thomas Day, which commemorates the martyrdom of the apostle Thomas in 72 AD near Chennai, India. Indian Christian leaders in Australia anticipate there will be a large influx of young educated professionals from India in the wake of a new economic and trade agreement between India and Australia. They hope to raise awareness of the day and use it as an opportunity to pray for churches to welcome Indians and pray that they become Christians.

 Prayer of the Week

O God, who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son to suffer death upon a cross, and by his glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of the enemy: grant us so to die daily to sin that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Lord our God, we lift our hearts to you, our help in every need. You do so much for us even in difficult times, letting us always see your light and giving us your help in the many things you want us to bear in your strength,

O Almighty God. In the end you will help our age come to your light. Through your great mercy let us receive your Word. Bless it within our hearts, and help us to serve you everywhere we go and in everything we are allowed to do. Amen.

Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this:

He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun.

Psalm 37:3-6

Sunday Funny

A driver got a speeding ticket and went to pay the fine.

The police clerk issued a receipt for payment and the annoyed driver said, "What am I supposed to do with this?"

"Keep it," the clerk advised. "If you collect enough of them, you get a bicycle!"

A Bible verse to take home.

Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:21
