Amen.The Proclamation of the WordA READING FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS 16: 9–15Read by Dr John HarrisDuring the night Paul had a vision: there stood a man ofMacedonia pleading with him and saying, “Come over toMacedonia and help us.” When he had seen the vision, weimmediately tried to cross over to Macedonia, being convincedthat God had called us to proclaim the good news to them. Weset sail from Troas and took a straight course to Samothrace, thefollowing day to Neapolis, and from there to Philippi, which is aleading city of the district of Macedonia and a Roman colony.We remained in this city for some days. On the sabbath day wewent outside the gate by the river, where we supposed there wasa place of prayer; and we sat down and spoke to the women whohad gathered there. A certain woman named Lydia, a worshipperof God, was listening to us; she was from the city of Thyatiraand a dealer in purple cloth. The Lord opened her heart to listeneagerly to what was said by Paul. When she and her householdwere baptized, she urged us, saying, “If you have judged me tobe faithful to the Lord, come and stay at my home.” And sheprevailed upon us.The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God.PSALM 67 (Tone III.4)May God be merciful to us and bless us, *show us the light of his countenance and come to us.Let your ways be known u-pon earth, *
your saving health among all na-tions.Let the peoples praise you O God; *let all the peo-ples praise you.Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, *for you judge the peoples with equity and guide all thenations u-pon earth.Let the peoples praise you O God; *let all the peo-ples praise you.The earth has brought forth her in-crease; *may God our own God give us his bles-sing.May God give us his bles-sing, *and may all the ends of the earth stand in awe of him.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 e-ver shall be:World without end Amen.A READING FROM THE REVELATION TO JOHN 21:10, 22—22:5Read by Dr. Virginia WrightAnd in the spirit, an angel carried me away to a great, highmountain and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming downout of heaven from God. I saw no temple in the city, for itstemple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And thecity has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory ofGod is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb. The nations will walkby its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory intoit. Its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be nonight there. People will bring into it the glory and the honour ofthe nations. But nothing unclean will enter it, nor anyone whopractises abomination or falsehood, but only those who arewritten in the Lamb’s book of life. Then the angel showed methe river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from thethrone of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street
of the city. On either side of the river is the tree of life with itstwelve kinds of fruit, producing its fruit each month; and theleaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. Nothingaccursed will be found there any more. But the throne of Godand of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him;they will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.And there will be no more night; they need no light of lamp orsun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reignforever and ever.The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaChoir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaAll: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaCantor: Jesus said, if anyone loves me he will keep myword, and my Father will love him, and we shallcome to him.All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaGospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And also with you.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christaccording to John 14: 23-29All: Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.Jesus answered, “Those who love me will keep my word, andmy Father will love them, and we will come to them and makeour home with them. Whoever does not love me does not keepmy words; and the word that you hear is not mine, but is fromthe Father who sent me. I have said these things to you while Iam still with you. But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom theFather will send in my name, will teach you everything, andremind you of all that I have said to you. Peace I leave with you;my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.You heard me say to you, ‘I am going away, and I am coming toyou.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to theFather, because the Father is greater than I.
