The Collect: 

Rite I:
O loving God, by thy grace thy servant James Huntington gathered a community dedicated to love and discipline and devotion to the holy Cross of our Savior Jesus Christ: Send thy blessing upon all who proclaim Christ crucified, and move the hearts of many to look unto him and be saved; who with thee and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Rite II:
O loving God, by your grace your servant James Huntington gathered a community dedicated to love and discipline and devotion to the holy Cross of our Savior Jesus Christ: Send your blessing on all who proclaim Christ crucified, and move the hearts of many to look upon him and be saved; who with you and the Holy spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

First Lesson: 
Galatians 6:14-18

14May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. 15For neither circumcision nor uncircumcision is anything; but a new creation is everything! 16As for those who will follow this rule—peace be upon them, and mercy, and upon the Israel of God.

17 From now on, let no one make trouble for me; for I carry the marks of Jesus branded on my body.

18 May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit, brothers and sisters. Amen.

Psalm: 
Psalm 119:161-168 or 34:1–8

161 Rulers have persecuted me without a cause, *
       but my heart stands in awe of your word.
162 I am as glad because of your promise *
       as one who finds great spoils.
163 As for lies, I hate and abhor them, *
       but your law is my love.
164 Seven times a day do I praise you, *
       because of your righteous judgments.
165 Great peace have they who love your law; *
       for them there is no stumbling block.
166 I have hoped for your salvation, O Lord, *
       and I have fulfilled your commandments.
167 I have kept your decrees *
       and I have loved them deeply.
168 I have kept your commandments and decrees, *
       for all my ways are before you.

or

1 I will bless the Lord at all times; *
       his praise shall ever be in my mouth.
2 I will glory in the Lord; *
       let the humble hear and rejoice.
3 Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord;
       let us exalt his Name together.
4 I sought the Lord, and he answered me *
       and delivered me out of all my terror.
5 Look upon him and be radiant, *
       and let not your faces be ashamed.
6 I called in my affliction and the Lord heard me *
       and saved me from all my troubles.
7 The angel of the Lord encompasses those who fear him, *
       and he will deliver them.
8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; *
       happy are they who trust in him!

Gospel: 
John 6:34-38

34They said to him, ‘Sir, give us this bread always.’

35 Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. 36But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; 38for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me.
