Gospel Reading

Luke 19:37-40

When Jesus came near the place where the road goes down the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began joyfully to praise God in loud voices for all the miracles they had seen: “Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” “Peace in heaven and glory in the highest!”

Some of the Pharisees in the crowd said to Jesus, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples!”  “I tell you,” he replied, “if they keep quiet, the stones will cry out.”

Song: No longer slaves

​Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
The third day he rose again from the dead.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.

Amen.

Song: Canticle of the turning

Sermon

2 Chronicles 5:2-14

The Ark Brought to the Temple

Then Solomon summoned to Jerusalem the elders of Israel, all the heads of the tribes and the chiefs of the Israelite families, to bring up the ark of the Lord’s covenant from Zion, the City of David. And all the Israelites came together to the king at the time of the festival in the seventh month.

When all the elders of Israel had arrived, the Levites took up the ark,  and they brought up the ark and the tent of meeting and all the sacred furnishings in it. The Levitical priests carried them up; and King Solomon and the entire assembly of Israel that had gathered about him were before the ark, sacrificing so many sheep and cattle that they could not be recorded or counted.

The priests then brought the ark of the Lord’s covenant to its place in the inner sanctuary of the temple, the Most Holy Place, and put it beneath the wings of the cherubim.  The cherubim spread their wings over the place of the ark and covered the ark and its carrying poles.  These poles were so long that their ends, extending from the ark, could be seen from in front of the inner sanctuary, but not from outside the Holy Place; and they are still there today.  There was nothing in the ark except the two tablets that Moses had placed in it at Horeb, where the Lord made a covenant with the Israelites after they came out of Egypt.

 The priests then withdrew from the Holy Place. All the priests who were there had consecrated themselves, regardless of their divisions.  All the Levites who were musicians—Asaph, Heman, Jeduthun and their sons and relatives—stood on the east side of the altar, dressed in fine linen and playing cymbals, harps and lyres. They were accompanied by 120 priests sounding trumpets.  The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang:

“He is good;
    his love endures forever.”

Then the temple of the Lord was filled with the cloud,  and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the Lord filled the temple of God.

Song: El Shaddai

​Prayer of Intercession

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvellous things!
As our mothers and fathers in the faith did,

we raise up our voices to you, our God,

because you have made your salvation known 

and you will reveal your righteousness to the nations.

You remember your love and your faithfulness to Israel, your church, your people;

all the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.

 

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, 

burst into jubilant song with music;

make music to the Lord with our voices

and the instruments of our time!  

We shout for joy before the Lord, the King,

with hymns and songs,

with the organ and with drums and guitars! 

Thank you for the beauty and wonder of music and song – in all its styles. 

Thank you that we may bring our thanks and praise to you;

may what we offer you please you.

May we experience joy, unity, peace and love as we sing –

may our hearts be lifted and our cares be lightened

through worshiping you. 

 

We bring our cares before you now,

and ask for you to look upon them with compassion

and healing.

We ask you to be with the elderly and lonely,

the sick and dying, the depressed, the poor and hungry.

Be with those who mourning

and those who are weighed down with worry or guilt.

Be with those who suffer from violence and injustice.

Be with your creation – all living creatures that experience hardship.

Lift them up and embrace them with your healing and salvation!

 

Let the sea resound, and everything in it!

​Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy!

For God is good and faithful,

a strong fortress in times of need,

our comfort in times of trouble,

our strength in times of weakness.

We pray, God, that we may never forget this.

 

Together we join our voices in praying the words Jesus has taught us to pray:

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.

Your Kingdom come, your will be done

on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those who sin against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are yours,

now and forever. Amen.

Benediction

The Lord bless you
and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.

Song as postlude: God of this city
