Psalm 71
1   In   you,   O   Lord,   I   take   refuge;   let   me   never   be
put to shame.
2   In   your   righteousness   deliver   me   and   rescue
me; incline your ear to me and save me.
3   Be   to   me   a   rock   of   refuge,   a   strong   fortress,   to
save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
4   Rescue   me,   O   my   God,   from   the   hand   of   the
wicked, from the grasp of the unjust and cruel.
5   For   you,   O   Lord,   are   my   hope,   my   trust,   O
Lord, from my youth.
6   Upon   you   I   have   leaned   from   my   birth;   it   was
you   who   took   me   from   my   mother’s   womb.   My
praise is continually of you.
2 nd Reading: Hebrews 12:18-29
18 You   have   not   come   to   something   that   can   be
touched,   a   blazing   fire,   and   darkness,   and   gloom,
and   a   tempest, 19 and   the   sound   of   a   trumpet,   and
a   voice   whose   words   made   the   hearers   beg   that
not   another   word   be   spoken   to   them. 20 (For   they
could   not   endure   the   order   that   was   given,   ‘If
even   an   animal   touches   the   mountain,   it   shall   be
stoned   to   death.’ 21 Indeed,   so   terrifying   was   the
sight    that    Moses    said,    ‘I    tremble    with    fear.’)
22 But   you   have   come   to   Mount   Zion   and   to   the
city   of   the   living   God,   the   heavenly   Jerusalem,
and   to   innumerable   angels   in   festal   gathering,
23 and   to   the   assembly   of   the   firstborn   who   are
enrolled   in   heaven,   and   to   God   the   judge   of   all,
and   to   the   spirits   of   the   righteous   made   perfect,
24 and   to   Jesus,   the   mediator   of   a   new   covenant,
and   to   the   sprinkled   blood   that   speaks   a   better
word   than   the   blood   of   Abel. 25 See   that   you   do
not   refuse   the   one   who   is   speaking;   for   if   they
did   not   escape   when   they   refused   the   one   who
warned   them   on   earth,   how   much   less   will   we
escape    if    we    reject    the    one    who    warns    from
heaven! 26 At   that   time   his   voice   shook   the   earth;
but   now   he   has   promised,   ‘Yet   once   more   I   will
shake   not   only   the   earth   but   also   the   heaven.’
27 This    phrase    ‘Yet    once    more’    indicates    the
removal    of    what    is    shaken—that    is,    created
things—so    that    what    cannot    be    shaken    may
remain. 28 Therefore,    since    we    are    receiving    a
kingdom    that    cannot    be    shaken,    let    us    give
thanks,   by   which   we   offer   to   God   an   acceptable
worship   with   reverence   and   awe; 29 for   indeed
our God is a consuming fire.
Gospel: Luke 13:10-17
Jesus Heals a Crippled Woman
10     Now     he     was     teaching     in     one     of     the
synagogues on the Sabbath.
11 And   just   then   there   appeared   a   woman   with   a
spirit   that   had   crippled   her   for   eighteen   years.
She    was    bent    over    and    was    quite    unable    to
stand up straight.
12 When   Jesus   saw   her,   he   called   her   over   and
said,    ‘Woman,    you    are    set    free    from    your
ailment.’
13 When   he   laid   his   hands   on   her,   immediately
she stood up straight and began praising God.
14 But   the   leader   of   the   synagogue,   indignant
because   Jesus   had   cured   on   the   Sabbath,   kept
saying   to   the   crowd,   ‘There   are   six   days   on
which   work   ought   to   be   done;   come   on   those
days and be cured, and not on the Sabbath day.’
15 But   the   Lord   answered   him   and   said,   ‘You
hypocrites!    Does    not    each    of    you    on    the
Sabbath   untie   his   ox   or   his   donkey   from   the
manger, and lead it away to give it water?
16 And   ought   not   this   woman,   a   daughter   of
Abraham   whom   Satan   bound   for   eighteen   long
years,    be    set    free    from    this    bondage    on    the
Sabbath day?’
17 When   he   said   this,   all   his   opponents   were   put
to   shame;   and   the   entire   crowd   was   rejoicing   at
all the wonderful things that he was doing.
Prayers for those who are ill Jimmy, Zena, Fatima, Prof Benassi, Norman, Marcus, Martin Whiffen, Rosemary Whiffen, Richard Barrett, Jean Baker, Peter Yates.

Jesus the Cause of Division
49 ‘I   came   to   bring   fire   to   the   earth,   and   how
I wish it were already kindled!
50 I have a baptism with which to be
baptized, and what stress I am under until
it is completed!
51 Do you think that I have come to bring
peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but
rather division!
52 From now on, five in one household will
be divided, three against two and two
against three;
53 they will be divided:father against son
and son against father, mother against
daughter and daughter against mother,
mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and daughter-in-law against mother-in-
law.’
54 He also said to the crowds, ‘When you
see a cloud rising in the west, you
immediately say, “It is going to rain”; and
so it happens.
55 And when you see the south wind
blowing, you say, “There will be scorching
heat”; and it happens.
56 You hypocrites! You know how to
interpret the appearance of earth and sky,
but why do you not know how to interpret
the present time?
Gospel: Luke 13:10-17
Jesus Heals a Crippled Woman
10    Now    he    was    teaching    in    one    of    the
synagogues on the Sabbath.
11 And   just   then   there   appeared   a   woman
with    a    spirit    that    had    crippled    her    for
eighteen   years.   She   was   bent   over   and   was
quite unable to stand up straight.
12 When   Jesus   saw   her,   he   called   her   over
and   said,   ‘Woman,   you   are   set   free   from
your ailment.’
13 When     he     laid     his     hands     on     her,
immediately    she    stood    up    straight    and
began praising God.
14 But     the     leader     of     the     synagogue,
indignant   because   Jesus   had   cured   on   the
Sabbath,   kept   saying   to   the   crowd,   ‘There
are   six   days   on   which   work   ought   to   be
done;   come   on   those   days   and   be   cured,
and not on the Sabbath day.’
15 But    the    Lord    answered    him    and    said,
‘You   hypocrites!   Does   not   each   of   you   on
the    Sabbath    untie    his    ox    or    his    donkey
from   the   manger,   and   lead   it   away   to   give
it water?
16 And   ought   not   this   woman,   a   daughter   of
Abraham   whom   Satan   bound   for   eighteen
long   years,   be   set   free   from   this   bondage
on the Sabbath day?’
17 When   he   said   this,   all   his   opponents   were
put    to    shame;    and    the    entire    crowd    was
rejoicing   at   all   the   wonderful   things   that   he
was doing.
