St. Petroc’s Padstow and St Saviour’s Trevone
SUNDAY BEFORE LENT
“The Weekly News” – February 14th 2016
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today
INTRODUCTION AND CALL TO WORSHIP In Lent we renew our desire to fulfil God’s purposes. Let us turn to God in prayer and repent of the same human pride which crucified our Lord.
THE COLLECT Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness, and was tempted as we are, yet without sin: Give us grace to discipline ourselves in obedience to your Spirit; and, as you know our weakness, so may we know your power to save; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
TODAY’S READINGS (Page 816/819)
First Reading Deuteronomy 26.1-11
The ancient Israelites regularly reminded themselves of the relationship between themselves and a loving, generous God, who had chosen to make himself known to them. A recital of his past saving acts acknowledged that they were constantly in his debt and must give him praise and honour.
Second Reading Romans 10.8b-13
St Paul stresses the continuity of the new revelation of God in Christ with the covenant described in the Old Testament. Yet salvation has now become available to all who confess their faith in the God who gives life and overcomes death.
Gospel St. Luke 4.1-13
The human Jesus had to resist the chance to see himself as more powerful than God: in the desert places of the Christian year, especially Lent, we must also learn to resist, recognising the true nature of temptation.
Lord God, you have renewed us with the living bread from heaven; by it you nourish our faith, increase our hope, and strengthen our love: Teach us always to hunger for him who is the true and living bread, and enable us to live by every word that proceeds from out of your mouth; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

THANK YOU to everyone who attended the Memorial Service this week for dear Doris Thurley. Thanks go to Roger and the Choir who played and sang so beautifully, music and hymns of Doris’ choosing. The family were very grateful for those who came to support them at this sad time. Doris will be greatly missed by her church family here at St. Petroc’s.

PLEASE have an open mind about our new services as you will have your opportunity to say what you think. We will be looking for your feedback at the APCM on March 9th so we can choose the style of services YOU would like in the parish. The PCC will then make the final decision after the Annual Parochial Church Meeting and the decided pattern of services will be put in place in April.
