*The Opening Hymn # 227 Praise Him! Praise Him!
The Reading of the Scripture 1 Peter 1: 17-23
Since you call on a Father who judges each man’s work impartially, live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear. For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.
He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for your brothers, love one another deeply, from the heart. For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.
This is the word of God for the people of God.
Thanks be to God.

Go out into the world in peace;
Hold on to what is good,
Return no one evil for evil;
Strengthen the fainthearted;
Support the weak, and help the suffering;
Love and serve the Lord,
Rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.
We go in the joy of the eternal love of God.
Thanks be to God. Amen.
