 Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.  Give us today our daily bread.  Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us.  Save us from the time of trial and deliver us from evil.  For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours now and forever.

THE HOLY SCRIPTURE

John 13:31-35

 SERMON “Love-filled Living”

 RESPONSE OF FAITH

 Through Jesus, God has given us a new commandment, to love one another just as we are loved by God.  But this commandment is not new anymore – it is thousands of years old – and yet we still struggle to live into its truth. In this coming week, may we discover opportunities to extend love and compassion, not just to one another, but to everyone God places in our path – and to this creation God has given us to tend. And may we do so, knowing that we are loved beyond measure by our merciful and gracious Lord. Amen.

Doxology (Hymn # 661 vs 1,2)

We give thee but thine own, what e’er the gift may be;  all that we have is thine a lone, a trust,                                     O Lord, from thee.

 May we thy bounties thus as stewards true receive,  and gladly, as thou blessest us,                                                      to thee our first-fruits give.
