Welcome Matthew Foy
Song – New new day
Lord, where we have gone wrong, set us again on the right path;
Where we have said hurtful things, help us to say we are sorry;
Where we have made mistakes, enable us to start again;
Where we have caused pain and suffering to those around us, show us how to make amends;
Where we have failed to love you, and our neighbours as ourselves, fill us with your love;
Where we have lost sight of you, and thought only of ourselves, forgive us, Lord, that your love might make us whole. Amen.
Song – Build Your Kingdom here
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.
Bible Reading – Matthew 5v21-26
21 ‘You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, “You shall not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.” 22 But I tell you that anyone who is angry with a brother or sister will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to a brother or sister “Raca” is answerable to the court. And anyone who says, “You fool!” will be in danger of the fire of hell.
23 ‘Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.
25 ‘Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. 26 Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.
