Lord, today we celebrate
the founding of our country.
Thank you, Lord, that we are free.
We have elections to choose our leaders.
We can worship as we see fit.
But in another way, you Lord.
make us truly free: free
from the laws of sin and death.
You give us the possibility
of living lives of love
and of looking forward
to eternal life.

John 8:31:
Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

Hymn: Freely, Freely
