Stories of Faith and Freedom 

Scriptures of the Lord bringing His people to freedom.  




   P: “The Lord be with you!   R:   and also, with you 

GATHERING: This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. The Holy Spirit calls us together as the people of God. 


FIRST READING A Reading from Exodus                

Exodus 14:10-31; 15:20-21

Chapter 14 

10As Pharaoh drew near, the Israelites looked back, and there were the Egyptians advancing on them. In great fear the Israelites cried out to the LORD. 11They said to Moses, "Was it because there were no graves in Egypt that you have taken us away to die in the wilderness? What have you done to us, bringing us out of Egypt? 12Is this not the very thing we told you in Egypt, 'Let us alone and let us serve the Egyptians'? For it would have been better for us to serve the Egyptians than to die in the wilderness." 13But Moses said to the people, "Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the LORD will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you see today you shall never see again. 14The LORD will fight for you, and you have only to keep still." 

15Then the LORD said to Moses, "Why do you cry out to me? Tell the Israelites to go forward. 16But you lift up your staff, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it, that the Israelites may go into the sea on dry ground. 17Then I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians so that they will go in after them; and so I will gain glory for myself over Pharaoh and all his army, his chariots, and his chariot drivers. 18And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I have gained glory for myself over Pharaoh, his chariots, and his chariot drivers." 

19The angel of God who was going before the Israelite army moved and went behind them; and the pillar of cloud moved from in front of them and took its place behind them. 20It came between the army of Egypt and the army of Israel. And so the cloud was there with the darkness, and it lit up the night; one did not come near the other all night. 

21Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea. The LORD drove the sea back by a strong east wind all night, and turned the sea into dry land; and the waters were divided. 22The Israelites went into the sea on dry ground, the waters forming a wall for them on their right and on their left. 23The Egyptians pursued, and went into the sea after them, all of Pharaoh's horses, chariots, and chariot drivers. 24At the morning watch the LORD in the pillar of fire and cloud looked down upon the Egyptian army, and threw the Egyptian army into panic. 25He clogged their chariot wheels so that they turned with difficulty. The Egyptians said, "Let us flee from the Israelites, for the LORD is fighting for them against Egypt." 

26Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea, so that the water may come back upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots and chariot drivers." 27So Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at dawn the sea returned to its normal depth. As the Egyptians fled before it, the LORD tossed the Egyptians into the sea. 28The waters returned and covered the chariots and the chariot drivers, the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed them into the sea; not one of them remained. 29But the Israelites walked on dry ground through the sea, the waters forming a wall for them on their right and on their left. 

30Thus the LORD saved Israel that day from the Egyptians; and Israel saw the Egyptians dead on the seashore. 31Israel saw the great work that the LORD did against the Egyptians. So the people feared the LORD and believed in the LORD and in his servant Moses. 

Chapter 15 

20Then the prophet Miriam, Aaron's sister, took a tambourine in her hand; and all the women went out after her with tambourines and with dancing. 21And Miriam sang to them:  "Sing to the LORD, for he has triumphed gloriously; 

 horse and rider he has thrown into the sea." 


The Word of the Lord 

Thanks be to God

PRAYER OF THE DAY: Let us pray. (A brief silence is kept before the prayer) Heavenly Father, God of all grace, govern our hearts that we may never forget your blessings, especially the blessing of freedom which truly comes only through You.

Give thanks to you through Your son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen                   

HYMN OF THE DAY   - When the Saints Go Marching In – vs 1-2



SECOND READING Isaiah 55:1-11 

1Ho, everyone who thirsts, 

 come to the waters; 

 and you that have no money, 

 come, buy and eat! 

 Come, buy wine and milk 

 without money and without price. 

 2Why do you spend your money for that which is not bread, 

 and your labor for that which does not satisfy? 

 Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, 

 and delight yourselves in rich food. 

 3Incline your ear, and come to me; 

 listen, so that you may live. 

 I will make with you an everlasting covenant, 

 my steadfast, sure love for David. 

 4See, I made him a witness to the peoples, 

 a leader and commander for the peoples. 

 5See, you shall call nations that you do not know, 

 and nations that do not know you shall run to you, 

 because of the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, 

 for he has glorified you. 

 6Seek the LORD while he may be found, 

 call upon him while he is near; 

 7let the wicked forsake their way, 

 and the unrighteous their thoughts; 

 let them return to the LORD, that he may have mercy on them, 

 and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. 

 8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, 

 nor are your ways my ways, says the LORD. 

 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, 

 so are my ways higher than your ways 

 and my thoughts than your thoughts. 

 10For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, 

 and do not return there until they have watered the earth, 

 making it bring forth and sprout, 

 giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, 

 11so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; 

 it shall not return to me empty, 

 but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, 

 and succeed in the thing for which I sent it. 

The Word of the Lord 

Thanks be to God 




THIRD READING               Isaiah 61:1-4, 9-11 

A reading from the book of Isaiah.  


1The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, 

 because the LORD has anointed me; 

 he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, 

 to bind up the brokenhearted, 

 to proclaim liberty to the captives, 

 and release to the prisoners; 

 2to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, 

 and the day of vengeance of our God; 

 to comfort all who mourn; 

 3to provide for those who mourn in Zion — 

 to give them a garland instead of ashes, 

 the oil of gladness instead of mourning, 

 the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. 

 They will be called oaks of righteousness, 

 the planting of the LORD, to display his glory. 

 4They shall build up the ancient ruins, 

 they shall raise up the former devastations; 

 they shall repair the ruined cities, 

 the devastations of many generations. 

 9Their descendants shall be known among the nations, 

 and their offspring among the peoples; 

 all who see them shall acknowledge 

 that they are a people whom the LORD has blessed. 

 10I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, 

 my whole being shall exult in my God; 

 for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation, 

 he has covered me with the robe of righteousness, 

 as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland, 

 and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. 

 11For as the earth brings forth its shoots, 

 and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, 

 so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise 

 to spring up before all the nations. 

The word of the Lord.  

Thanks be to God. 


OFFERING SONG: Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory #890 

OFFERING PRAYER: Blessed are you, O God, ruler of heaven and earth. Day by day you shower us with blessings. As you have raised us to new life in Christ, give us glad and generous hearts, ready to praise you and to respond to those in need, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen. 

FOURTH READING           Luke 23:26-46 

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to St. Luke.  

26As they led him away, they seized a man, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming from the country, and they laid the cross on him, and made him carry it behind Jesus. 27A great number of the people followed him, and among them were women who were beating their breasts and wailing for him. 28But Jesus turned to them and said, "Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29For the days are surely coming when they will say, 'Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bore, and the breasts that never nursed.' 30Then they will begin to say to the mountains, 'Fall on us'; and to the hills, 'Cover us.' 31For if they do this when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?" 

32Two others also, who were criminals, were led away to be put to death with him. 33When they came to the place that is called The Skull, they crucified Jesus there with the criminals, one on his right and one on his left. [[ 34Then Jesus said, "Father, forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing."]] And they cast lots to divide his clothing. 35And the people stood by, watching; but the leaders scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Messiah of God, his chosen one!" 36The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him sour wine, 37and saying, "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!" 38There was also an inscription over him, "This is the King of the Jews." 

39One of the criminals who were hanged there kept deriding him and saying, "Are you not the Messiah? Save yourself and us!" 40But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41And we indeed have been condemned justly, for we are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man has done nothing wrong." 42Then he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." 43He replied, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise." 

44It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, 45while the sun's light failed; and the curtain of the temple was torn in two. 46Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." Having said this, he breathed his last. 


This is the Gospel of our Lord.  

Praise to you, O Christ.  


HYMN OF THE DAY   - When the Saints Go Marching In – vs 3-5 


FIFTH READING        Romans 6:15-23 

A reading from Paul’s letter to the Romans. 


15What then? Should we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means! 16Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17But thanks be to God that you, having once been slaves of sin, have become obedient from the heart to the form of teaching to which you were entrusted, 18and that you, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. 19I am speaking in human terms because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to greater and greater iniquity, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness for sanctification. 

20When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21So what advantage did you then get from the things of which you now are ashamed? The end of those things is death. 22But now that you have been freed from sin and enslaved to God, the advantage you get is sanctification. The end is eternal life. 23For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

The word of the Lord.  

Thanks be to God. 

HYMN – My County Tis of Thee - vs 1-2 


SIXTH READING        Revelation 21:1-8 

A reading from the book of Revelation. 

1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, 

         "See, the home of God is among mortals. 

         He will dwell with them; 

         they will be his peoples, 

         and God himself will be with them; 

         4he will wipe every tear from their eyes. 

         Death will be no more; 

         mourning and crying and pain will be no more, 

         for the first things have passed away." 

5And the one who was seated on the throne said, "See, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true." 6Then he said to me, "It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water as a gift from the spring of the water of life. 7Those who conquer will inherit these things, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the polluted, the murderers, the fornicators, the sorcerers, the idolaters, and all liars, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death. 


The word of the Lord.  

Thanks be to God. 


HYMN – My County Tis of Thee - vs 3-4 



We thank you, O God, for your life-giving Word, 

for calling creation into being,  

declaring forgiveness from the cross,  

and delivering the spirit of rebirth.  

We praise you, O God, for your Word: 

we praise you, O God, for your Word. 


Your word is a lamp lighting our path,  

a mirror reflecting our selves,  

a shield providing us refuge,  

a fire burning for justice and truth.  

Your word is sweeter than honey:  

it nourishes our bodies like milk,  

it sustains your people like bread.  

We receive your promises, more treasured than gold.  

We bless you, O God, for your Word: 

we bless you, O God, for your Word. 


Open our ears to your prophets, apostles, and saints,  

and to all the cries of the needy.  

Breathe into your church the mighty Spirit of Christ,  

that heeding your voice of beauty and power  

we are strengthened to serve wherever we are called.  

To you, Father, Son, and Spirit—the Source, Word, and Breath— 

we offer our thanks for your life-giving Word.
