6 Philippians 2: Service, simplicity, submission, solitude 1 If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2 then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. 3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. 4 Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross! Service, simplicity, submission, solitude

10 Joshua 1 12 But to the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh, Joshua said, 13 "Remember the command that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: 'The LORD your God is giving you rest and has granted you this land.' 14 Your wives, your children and your livestock may stay in the land that Moses gave you east of the Jordan, but all your fighting men, fully armed, must cross over ahead of your brothers. You are to help your brothers 15 until the LORD gives them rest, as he has done for you, and until they too have taken possession of the land that the LORD your God is giving them. After that, you may go back and occupy your own land, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave you east of the Jordan towards the sunrise." 16 Then they answered Joshua, "Whatever you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go.

11 Psalm How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! 2 It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down upon the collar of his robes. 3 It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing, even life for evermore.

12 Luke 10 1 After this the Lord appointed seventy-two others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 2 He told them, 5 "When you enter a house, first say, 'Peace to this house.' 8 "When you are welcomed, eat what is set before you. 9 Heal the sick who are there and tell them, 'The kingdom of God is near you.' 17 The seventy-two returned with joy and said, "Lord, even the demons submit to us in your name."

13 1 Corinthians The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. 15 If the foot should say, "Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body," it would not for that reason cease to be part of the body. 17 If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? 21 The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" And the head cannot say to the feet, "I don't need you!" 25 There should be no division in the body, and its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it. 27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

14 Prayers for Others

15 Song - Meditative

16 Brother, sister, let me serve you Let me be as Christ to you; Pray that I may have the grace To let you be my servant, too. 2 We are pilgrims on a journey, We are partners on the road; We are here to help each other Walk the mile and bear the load. 3 I will hold the Christlight for you In the night-time of your fear; I will hold my hand out to you, Speak the peace you long to hear. 4 I will weep when you are weeping, When you laugh I'll laugh with you; I will share your joy and sorrow Till we've seen this journey through. 5 When we sing to God in heaven We shall find such harmony, Born of all we've known together Of Christ's love and agony.

17 Bind us together, Lord, Bind us together With cords that cannot be broken. Bind us together, Lord, Bind us together, Bind us together with love. There is only one God, There is only one King; There is only one Body, That is why we sing: Made for the glory of God, Purchased by His precious Son; Born with the right to be clean, For Jesus the victory has won. You are the family of God, You are the promise divine; You are God’s chosen desire, You are the glorious new wine.

18 Jesus, stand among us At the meeting of our lives; Be our sweet agreement At the meeting of our eyes. O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here; Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear. So to You we’re gathering Out of each and every land; Christ the love between us At the joining of our hands. O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here; Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

19 Jesus, stand among us At the meeting of our lives; Be our sweet agreement At the meeting of our eyes. O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here; Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear. So to You we’re gathering Out of each and every land; Christ the love between us At the joining of our hands. O Jesus, we love You, so we gather here; Join our hearts in unity and take away our fear.

20 Thanksgiving prayer

21 Song – Inspiring

22 Men of faith, rise up and sing Of the great and glorious King; You are strong when you feel weak In your brokenness complete. Shout to the north and the south Sing to the east and the west Jesus is Saviour to all Lord of heaven and earth. Rise up women of the truth Stand and sing to broken hearts Who can know the healing power Of our glorious King of love. We’ve been through fire We’ve been through rain; We’ve been refined By the power of His name. We’ve fallen deeper in love with You You’ve burned the truth on our lips. Rise up church with broken wings; Fill this place with songs again Of our God who reigns on high By His grace again we’ll fly.

23 At the name of Jesus Every knee shall bow, Every tongue confess Him King of glory now; ’Tis the Father’s pleasure We should call Him Lord, Who from the beginning Was the mighty Word. Humbled for a season, To receive a name From the lips of sinners Unto whom He came; Faithfully He bore it Spotless to the last, Brought it back victorious, When from death He passed. Bore it up triumphant With its human light, Through all ranks of creatures To the central height, To the throne of Godhead, To the Father’s breast, Filled it with the glory Of that perfect rest. In your hearts enthrone Him; There let Him subdue All that is not holy, All that is not true; Crown Him as your Captain In temptation’s hour, Let His will enfold you In its light and power.

24 Onward, Christian soldiers Marching as to war With the cross of Jesus Going on before! Christ, the royal Master, Leads against the foe; Forward into battle, See, His banners go Like a mighty army Moves the church of God: Brothers we are treading Where the saints have trod. We are not divided All one body we, One in hope and doctrine, One in charity. Crowns and thrones may perish, Kingdoms rise and wane, But the church of Jesus Constant will remain; Gates of hell can never ’Gainst that church prevail; We have Christ’s own promise, And that cannot fail Onward, then, ye people! Join our happy throng; Blend with ours your voices In the triumph-song: Glory, laud, and honour Unto Christ the King! This through countless ages Men and angels sing:

25 1) I am the eye, I go blink, blink, Yes, I am the eye, I see so much I am the eye but I can't touch, That belongs to my friends on the hands. 2 I fiddle, feely, fiddle, feely, fiddle, feely, I'm the fingers with the most amazing sense of touch I’m the fingers and can work out quickly what is what. Yes I fiddle, feely, fiddle all the time. 3) I go munch, crunch, munch, crunch I go. I am the mouth, I chew like so. The taste of food is great you know – it’s energy it makes us grow 4) We’re breathing, we’re breathing, some air’s good and some’s less so I'm the nose, I'm the nose, I know by sense of smell. 5) Hearing, hearing, Small ears, hearing, We don't, miss much, Hearing all the time. 6) We are the body of Christ, We are the body of Christ, Together bringing His love to the world.

26 Blessing Now may the blessing of God the Father, who made from one every nation that occupies the earth; of God the Son who bought us for God from every tribe & language & people & nation; and of God the Spirit who brings us together in unity, be with us and remain with us always. Amen. cf Acts 17.26; Revelation 5.9
