*PSALTER….......................................Psalm 91:1-10 (UMH 810-811)...........…….…….…..................Jim Holly

 

Those who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,

            Who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,

            Will say to the Lord,

“My refuge and my fortress;

            My God, in whom I trust.”

For the Lord will deliver you from the snare of the fowler

            And from the deadly pestilence

And will cover you with his pinions;

            Under the Lord’s wings you will find refuge.

            God’s faithfulness is a shield and buckler. 

 

You will not fear the terror of the night,

            Nor the arrow that flies by day,

Nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,

            Nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.

A thousand may fall at your side,

            Ten thousand at your right hand,

            But it will not come near you.

You will only look with your eyes

            And see the recompense of the wicked. 

Because you have made the Lord your refuge,

            The Most High your habitation,

No evil shall befall you,

            No scourge come near your tent. 

 

 

 

 

*AFFIRMATION OF FAITH- A Statement of Faith from The United Church of Canada (883)….............................…Jim Holly

 

We are not alone, we live in God’s world.

We believe in God:

            Who has created and is creating,

            Who has come in Jesus, the Word made flesh,

                        To reconcile and make new,

            Who works in us and others by the Spirit.

We trust in God.

We are called to be the church:

            To celebrate God’s presence,

            To love and serve others,

            To seek justice and resist evil,

            To proclaim Jesus, crucified and risen,

                        Our judge and our hope.

In life, in death, in life beyond death,

            God is with us.

We are not alone.

Thanks be to God.  Amen.

                                                    As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE AND THE LORD’S PRAYER (Trespass)…….……..…....................................Rev. Lynnette Sills

 

 

 

Our Father, who art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name,

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

And forgive us our trespasses, as we

forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but

deliver us from evil,

For thine is the kingdom, and the power and

the glory forever.  Amen.

SCRIPTURE…...….…….………………......…..…......… Luke 16:19-31….…….………....…...........…………….Jim Holly

The Rich Man and Lazarus

 

19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came

and licked his sores.

 

22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 

 

23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 

 

24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water

and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

 

25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus

received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great

chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

 

27 “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them,

so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

 

29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

 

30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

 

31 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even

if someone rises from the dead.’”

Liturgist:  The word of God for the people of God.  People:  Thanks be to God.
