Amen.Children’s Focus led by The Rev. Grace Caldwell-HillA READING FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS 1: 15-17, 21-26 Read by Rueben RussouwIn those days Peter stood up among the believers (together thecrowd numbered about one hundred twenty persons) and said,“Friends, the scripture had to be fulfilled, which the Holy Spirit
through David foretold concerning Judas, who became a guidefor those who arrested Jesus—for he was numbered among usand was allotted his share in this ministry. So one of the menwho have accompanied us during all the time that the LordJesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism ofJohn until the day when he was taken up from us—one of thesemust become a witness with us to his resurrection.” So theyproposed two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also knownas Justus, and Matthias. Then they prayed and said, “Lord, youknow everyone’s heart. Show us which one of these two youhave chosen to take the place in this ministry and apostleshipfrom which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.” Andthey cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias; and he wasadded to the eleven apostles.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People: Thanks be toGod.PSALM 1 (sung) Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of thewick-ed, * nor lingered in the way of sinners / nor sat in the seats of the scorn-ful! Their delight is in the law of the LORD, * and on his law they med-i-tate day and night. They are like trees planted by streams of water / bearing fruitin due season, with leaves that do not wi-ther; * everything they do shall pros-per. It is not so with the wick-ed; * they are like chaff which the wind blows a-way.
Therefore the wicked shall not stand upright when judg-mentcomes, * nor the sinner in the council of the righ-teous. For the LORD knows the way of the righ-teous, * but the way of the wick-ed is doom’d.Glory be to the Father and to the Son: and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit.As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be:world with-out end A-men.A READING FROM THE FIRST LETTER OF JOHN 5: 9-13 read by Marina RussouwIf we receive human testimony, the testimony of God is greater;for this is the testimony of God that he has testified to his Son.Those who believe in the Son of God have the testimony intheir hearts. Those who do not believe in God have made him aliar by not believing in the testimony that God has givenconcerning his Son. And this is the testimony: God gave useternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son haslife; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life. Iwrite these things to you who believe in the name of the Son ofGod, so that you may know that you have eternal life.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People.Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaChoir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!Cantor: O clap your hands all ye people: shout unto God with the voice of triumph.All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Gospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And also with you.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John 17: 6-19.All: Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.Jesus said, “Father, I have made your name known to thosewhom you gave me from the world. They were yours, and yougave them to me, and they have kept your word. Now theyknow that everything you have given me is from you; for thewords that you gave to me I have given to them, and they havereceived them and know in truth that I came from you; and theyhave believed that you sent me. I am asking on their behalf; Iam not asking on behalf of the world, but on behalf of thosewhom you gave me, because they are yours. All mine are yours,and yours are mine; and I have been glorified in them. And nowI am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I amcoming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that youhave given me, so that they may be one, as we are one. While Iwas with them, I protected them in your name that you havegiven me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost exceptthe one destined to be lost, so that the scripture might befulfilled. But now I am coming to you, and I speak these thingsin the world so that they may have my joy made complete inthemselves. I have given them your word, and the world hashated them because they do not belong to the world, just as I donot belong to the world. I am not asking you to take them out ofthe world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one. Theydo not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you have sentme into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And fortheir sakes I sanctify myself, so that they also may be sanctifiedin truth.”
