Jesus Cleanses Ten Lepers
11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14 When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed.
15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”
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: Give thanks
Sermon: Luke 19:1-10
Jesus and Zacchaeus
1 He entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 And behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus. He was a chief tax collector and was rich. 3 And he was seeking to see who Jesus was, but on account of the crowd he could not, because he was small in stature. 4 So he ran on ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see him, for he was about to pass that way. 5 And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, hurry and come down, for I must stay at your house today.” 6 So he hurried and came down and received him joyfully. 7 And when they saw it, they all grumbled, “He has gone in to be the guest of a man who is a sinner.” 8 And Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor. And if I have defrauded anyone of anything, I restore it fourfold.” 9 And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, since he also is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Intercessory Prayer and Lord's Prayer
God of all, Giver of all good things,
we pray for those who make money their god, that like Zacchaeus they may be transformed from greed to generosity, from hoarders to hosts. Bless our finances, that we too may be open to the needs of others and be thankful for all we have.
Forgive us, Lord, when we are slow to see opportunities for change in our lives and in the lives of others.
May we never turn away those whom you would welcome, or turn away from your welcoming embrace of us.
We give thanks for:
those who have invited us into their homes
for meals and celebrations;
those who have invited us to join the church fellowship;
those who have helped us to make changes in our lives, both minor and major.
May we be open to your prompting and make change where change is needed,
and be ready to open our hearts and our homes to those you have placed in our way.
We pray for all who seek and need your welcoming embrace:
the vulnerable in our world - offer them protection;
the elderly hidden away at home - save them from loneliness;
the abandoned - save them from despair;
the mentally distressed - help them find peace and stability;
the poor - save them from starvation;
your rejected people - save us from forgetting them.
We pray in the name of Jesus,
whose welcoming embrace changed Zacchaeus’ life.
All our supplications flow together in the prayer Jesus has taught us:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours
now and for ever. Amen.
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.
