Work­ing for Love, Hope, & Justice

Con­sider Luke, schol­ar and evan­gel­ist patiently giv­ing an account of the work of God in Christ and the early church, but also stand­ing with God’s people in their time of tri­al. As he wrote the Gos­pel read­ing for today no doubt he reflec­ted upon his own response to the call of Christ to go out into the har­vest. May we fol­low his example in our lives for our fam­il­ies, friends, neigh­bours and work col­leagues need to hear of the love and mercy of God in Christ Jesus our Lord and see this good news reflec­ted in our lives.

  • Pray that we may ask the Lord of the har­vest to send out work­ers into his har­vest field for the har­vest is plen­ti­ful but the work­ers are few.
  • Give thanks for the Zam­bia Anglic­an Council’s Out­reach Program.

Introit Hymn:  TIS 455 — For all the saints

  1. For all the saints, who from their labours rest,
    who to the world their Lord by faith confessed,
    your name O Jesus, be for ever blessed.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.
  2. You were their rock, their fort­ress and their might
    you were their cap­tain in the well fought fight
    in deep­est dark­ness still their one true light.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.
  3. So may your ser­vants, faith­ful, true and bold,
    fight as the saints who nobly fought of old,
    and win, with them, the victor’s crown of gold.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.
  4. O blest com­mu­nion, fel­low­ship divine!
    We feebly struggle, they in glory shine,
    all yours, all joined in unity divine.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.
  5. And when the strife is fierce, the war­fare long,
    steals on the ear the dis­tant tri­umph song,
    and hearts are brave again, and arms are strong.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.
  6. The golden even­ing bright­ens in the west;
    soon, soon to faith­ful war­ri­ors comes their rest,
    the peace­ful calm of para­dise the blest.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.
  7. But see, there breaks a yet more glor­i­ous day;
    the saints tri­umphant rise in bright array;
    The King of glory passes on his way.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.
  8. From earth’s wide bounds and ocean’s farthest shore,
    through heaven’s gate the holy people pour;
    the Three-in-One for ever they adore.
    Hal­le­lu­jah, Hallelujah.

[Music by Ral­ph Vaughan Wil­li­ams 1872–1958
Words by Wil­li­am Walsham How 1823–97]

The Sen­tence: The har­vest is plen­ti­ful but the labour­ers are few; ask there­fore the Lord of the har­vest to send out labour­ers into his harvest.

Luke 10.2

The Col­lect:
Almighty God,
who inspired your ser­vant Luke the physician
to set forth in his gospel
the love and heal­ing power of your Son:
gra­ciously con­tin­ue in your Church
this love and power to heal,
to the praise and glory of your name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the  Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.              Amen.

First Read­ing                                                              Jeremi­ah 8.22–9:3

A read­ing from the book of Proph­et Jeremiah

Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no phys­i­cian there? Why then has the health of my poor people not been restored? O that my head were a spring of water, and my eyes a foun­tain of tears, so that I might weep day and night for the slain of my poor people! O that I had in the desert a traveller’s lodging place that I might leave my people and go away from them! For they are all adulter­ers, a band of trait­ors. They bend their tongues like bows; they have grown strong in the land for false­hood, and not for truth; for they pro­ceed from evil to evil, and they do not know me, says the Lord.

For the word of the Lord                                             Thanks be to God

Psalm 145:10–18

10   All cre­ation | praises you, O | Lord;
and your faith­ful | ser­vants | bless your | name.

11   They speak of the glory | of your | kingdom;
and | tell of your | great | might.

†12 That all people may know your | mighty | acts;
and the glor­i­ous | splend­our | of your | kingdom.

13   Your king­dom is an ever|lasting | kingdom;
and your domin­ion en|dures through | all gener|ations.

14 The Lord upholds all | those who | stumble;
and raises up | those that are | bowed | down.

15   The eyes of all look to | you in | hope;
and you give them their | food in | due | season.

16   You open | wide your | hand;
and fill all things | liv­ing with your | bounteous | gift.

17   The Lord is just in | all his | ways;
and | faith­ful in | all his | doings.

18   The Lord is near to all who | call up|on him;
to all who | call up|on him in | truth.

Glo|ry to | God; Fath­er | Son and | Holy | Spirit.
As in the be|ginning so | now; and for | ever. | A|men.

Second Read­ing                                                          2 Timothy 4.9–17a

A read­ing from Paul’s Second let­ter to Timothy

Please come as soon as you can. Demas has deser­ted me because he loves the things of this life and has gone to Thes­salon­ica. Cres­cens has gone to Gala­tia, and Tit­us has gone to Dal­ma­tia. Only Luke is with me. Bring Mark with you when you come, for he will be help­ful to me. I sent Tychi­cus to Eph­esus. When you come, be sure to bring the coat I left with Carpus at Troas. Also bring my books, and espe­cially my papers. Alex­an­der the cop­per­smith has done me much harm, but the Lord will judge him for what he has done. Be care­ful of him, for he fought against everything we said. The first time I was brought before the judge, no one was with me. Every­one had aban­doned me. I hope it will not be coun­ted against them. But the Lord stood with me and gave me strength, so that I might preach the Good News in all its full­ness for all the Gen­tiles to hear. And he saved me from cer­tain death.

For the word of the Lord                                             Thanks be to God

Gos­pel Pro­ces­sion:

The Gos­pel Acclamation. 

Alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia!
I have chosen you from the world, | says the | Lord.
to go and | bear fruit | that will | last.
Alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia!

The Gos­pel                                                                               Luke 10.1–9

The Gos­pel of our Lord Jesus Christ accord­ing to Luke

X Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord now chose sev­enty-two oth­er dis­ciples and sent them on ahead in pairs to all the towns and vil­lages he planned to vis­it. These were his instruc­tions to them: “The har­vest is plen­ti­ful, but the work­ers are few. Pray to the Lord who is in charge of the har­vest, and ask him to send out more work­ers for his fields. Go now, and remem­ber that I am send­ing you out as lambs among wolves. Don’t take along any money, or a traveler’s bag, or even an extra pair of san­dals. And don’t stop to greet any­one on the road. “Whenev­er you enter a home, give it your bless­ing. If those who live there are worthy, the bless­ing will stand; if they are not, the bless­ing will return to you. When you enter a town, don’t move around from home to home. Stay in one place, eat­ing and drink­ing what they provide you. Don’t hes­it­ate to accept hos­pit­al­ity, because those who work deserve their pay. “If a town wel­comes you, eat whatever is set before you and heal the sick. As you heal them, say, ‘The King­dom of God is near you now.’

For Gos­pel of the Lord                                                Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Hymn after the Ser­mon TIS 405 — O spir­it of the liv­ing God

  1. O Spir­it of the liv­ing God,
    in all the full­ness of your grace,
    wherever human foot has trod
    des­cend on our rebel­li­ous race.
  2. Give tongues of fire and hearts of love
    to preach the recon­cil­ing word;
    anoint with power from above
    whenev­er gos­pel truth is heard.
  3. Be dark­ness, at your com­ing, light;
    con­fu­sion, order in your path
    souls without strength inspire with might;
    bid mercy tri­umph over wrath.
  4. O, Spir­it of the Lord, prepare
    the whole round earth its God to meet;
    and breathe abroad like morn­ing air;
    till hearts of stone begin to beat.
  5. Bap­tize the nations, far and wide
    the tri­umphs of the Cross record;
    the name of Christ be glorified;
    let every people call him Lord.

[Music by Percy Carter Buck 1871–1947,
Words by James Mont­gomery 1771–1854]

Pray­er for our Parish

God of Love,
God of Mission,
You alone bring growth to your Church.
Send to us your Holy Spir­it — to give-
Vis­ion for our planning,
Wis­dom in our actions,
And power to our witness.
Help our church to grow in numbers,
In spir­itu­al com­mit­ment to you
And in ser­vice to our loc­al community.

Offer­tory Hymn TIS 520 — Lord enthroned in heav­enly splendour

  1. Lord, enthroned in heav­enly splendour,
    first-begot­ten from the dead,
    you alone our strong defender,
    lift­ing up your people’s head:
    alle­lu­ia, alleluia,
    Jesus, true and liv­ing bread.
  2. Here our humble homage pay we,
    here in lov­ing rev­er­ence bow;
    here for faith’s dis­cern­ment pray we,
    lest we fail to know you now:
    alle­lu­ia, alleluia,
    you are here, we ask not how.
  3. Though the lowli­est form now veils you
    as of old in Bethlehem,
    here as there your angels hail you,
    branch and flower of Jesse’s stem;
    alle­lu­ia, alleluia,
    we in wor­ship join with them.
  4. Paschal Lamb, your offer­ing, finished
    once for all when you were slain,
    in its full­ness undiminished
    shall for ever­more remain,
    alle­lu­ia, alleluia,
    cleans­ing souls from every stain.
  5. Great High Priest of our profession
    through the veil you entered in;
    by your mighty intercession
    grace and mercy you can win:
    alle­lu­ia, alleluia,
    only sac­ri­fice for sin.
  6. Life-impart­ing heav­enly manna,
    stricken rock with stream­ing side,
    heav­en and earth with loud hosanna
    wor­ship you, the Lamb who died
    alle­lu­ia, alleluia,
    ris’n, ascen­ded, glorified!

[Music by George Clem­ent Mar­tin 1844–1916
Words by George Hugh Bourne 1840–1925 alt.]


Com­mu­nion Chant

Hymn after the Bless­ing TIS 432 — Christ is made the sure foundation

[WESTMINSTER ABBEY 87.87.87 Henry Pur­cell 1659–95 adap­ted by Ern­est Hawkins 1802–68  from an anthem]

  1. Christ is made the sure foundation,
    Christ the head and cornerstone,
    chosen by the Lord, and precious,
    bind­ing all the church in one,
    holy Zion’s help for ever,
    and her con­fid­ence alone.
  2. All that ded­ic­ated city,
    dearly loved by God on high,
    in exult­ant jubilation
    pours per­petu­al melody,
    God the Three in One adoring,
    prais­ing him eternally.
  3. Here among us, where we call you
    come, O Lord our God, today;
    with your gentle lov­ing kindness
    hear your people as we pray,
    and your fullest benediction
    pour upon us here today.
  4. Here bestow on all your people
    what we ask of you to gain,
    what we gain from you for ever
    with the blessèd to retain,
    and here­after in your glory
    ever­more with you to reign.
  5. Praise and hon­our to the Father,
    praise and hon­our to the Son,
    praise and hon­our to the Spirit,
    ever Three and ever One,
    one in might and one in glory
    while etern­al ages run.

[From Urbs beata Hier­u­s­alem, Lat­in, c. 7th cent. tr. John Mason Neale 1818–66 alt.
