Introduction and Call to Worship

At this season of remembrance, we gather to give thanks for those who have given their lives in sacrifice for peace, most especially our Lord Jesus Christ, and we offer ourselves as living sacrifices for the sake of God’s reconciling work in the world today.

 

Collect

God, our refuge and strength, bring near the day when wars shall cease and poverty and pain shall end, that earth may know the peace of heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Readings

First Reading Job 19:23-27a

Job moves from a plea that his suffering be recorded, to expressing a profound belief that he will see God.

Second Reading 2 Thessalonians 2:1-5. 13-end

Paul assures his readers of God’s faithfulness in troubled times, reassures them that this is not the end, and encourages them to be faithful themselves.

Gospel Luke 20:27-38

The Gospel comes in the midst of a series of exchanges in the Temple, in which Jesus demonstrates his authority, drawing on scripture to show the reality of resurrection.

 

Introduction to the Peace.

Christ died and rose again that we might have peace with one another, and with God. We thank him for his gift of peace, which he gives to us to share with all God’s children. The peace of the Lord…

 

Post Communion Prayer.

God of peace, whose Son Jesus Christ proclaimed the kingdom and restored the broken to wholeness of life: look with compassion on the anguish of the world, and by your healing power make whole both people and nations; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen

 

Blessing

May God lead you through the world’s challenges, strong in faith and love, bearing and sharing God’s peace with all you meet. And the blessing of God almighty…
