Collect

Risen Christ, faithful shepherd of your Father’s sheep: teach us to hear your voice and to follow your command, that all your people may be gathered into one flock, to the glory of God the Father.  Amen.

 

Intercessions

The Lord is our Good Shepherd:

there is nothing we shall lack.

 

In your prayers this week could you pray for our five overseas partner Dioceses especially today the Diocese of Vasteras and for Churches Together, The Quarry U.R.C. 

 

Post Communion

Merciful Father, you gave your Son Jesus Christ to be the good shepherd, and in his love for us to lay down his life and rise again: keep us

always under his protection, and give us grace to follow in his steps; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

 

First Reading – Acts 4 v5-12

 

5The next day their rulers, elders, and scribes assembled in Jerusalem, 6with Annas the high priest, Caiaphas, John, and Alexander, and all who were of the high-priestly family. 7When they had made the prisoners stand in their midst, they inquired, ‘By what power or by what name did you do this?’ 8Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, ‘Rulers of the people and elders, 9if we are questioned today because of a good deed done to someone who was sick and are asked how this man has been healed, 10let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that this man is standing before you in good health by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead. 11This Jesus is “the stone that was rejected by you, the builders; it has become the cornerstone.”  12There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among mortals by which we must be saved.’

Gospel Reading – John 10 v11-18

 

11 ‘I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away—and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. 14I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, 15just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. 16I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. 17For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. 18No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. I have received this command from my Father.’

We shall go out with hope of resurrection

 

1.  We shall go out with hope of resurrection;

we shall go out, from strength to strength go on;

we shall go out and tell our stories boldly;

tales of a love that will not let us go.

We’ll sing our songs of wrongs that can be righted;

we’ll dream our dream of hurts that can be healed;

we’ll weave a cloth of all the world united

within the vision of new life who sets us free.

 

2.  We’ll give a voice to those who have not spoken;

we’ll find the words for those whose lips are sealed;

we’ll make the tunes for those who sing no longer,

expressive love alive in every heart.

We’ll share our joy with those who are still weeping,

raise hymns of strength for hearts that break in grief,

we’ll leap and dance the resurrection story

including all in circles of our love.
