The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)
3rd Sunday after Trinity Proper 6 Sunday 12th June

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. Sinners and trespassers as we are, we acknowledge that he came to offer his love and forgiveness to all.

Almighty God, you have broken the tyranny of sin and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts whereby we call you Father: Give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service, that we and all creation may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God; 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 forever. Amen.

READINGS (Proper 6 – Page 962/964)
First Reading 2 Samuel 11: 26-12:10,13-15
Sin and wrong doing cannot be concealed from God. The prophet Nathan challenges King David who, seeing how he has offended God, repents with all his heart.

First Reading Galatians 2:15-21
Paul argues, very emphatically, that faith in Christ is enough. Through our faith in Christ we are accepted by God, just as we are.

Gospel Reading St. Luke 7:36-8:3
If we each come to Jesus recognising we are sinners and recognising our need of forgiveness he offers his forgiveness without limit, as he does his love. Receiving that forgiving love we cannot but respond with unqualified love.

O God, whose beauty is beyond our imagining and whose power we cannot comprehend: Show us your glory as far as we can grasp it, and shield us from knowing more than we can bear until we may look upon you without fear; through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.
Psalm 32 (Trevone Only)
1 Happy the one whose transgression is forgiven, ¨ and whose sin is covered.
2 Happy the one to whom the Lord imputes no guilt, ¨ and in whose spirit there is no guile.
3 For I held my tongue; ¨ my bones wasted away through my groaning all the day long.
4 Your hand was heavy upon me day and night; ¨ my moisture was dried up like the drought in summer.
5 Then I acknowledged my sin to you ¨ and my iniquity I did not hide.
6 I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord,’ ¨ and you forgave the guilt of my sin.
7 Therefore let all the faithful make their prayers to you in time of trouble; ¨ in the great water flood, it shall not reach them.
8 You are a place for me to hide in; you preserve me from trouble; ¨ you surround me with songs of deliverance.
9 ‘I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should go; ¨ I will guide you with my eye.
10 ‘Be not like horse and mule which have no understanding; ¨ whose mouths must be held with bit and bridle,
or else they will not stay near you.’
11 Great tribulations remain for the wicked, ¨ but mercy embraces those who trust in the Lord.
12 Be glad, you righteous, and rejoice in the Lord; ¨ shout for joy, all who are true of heart.

THANK YOU on behalf of the newly licensed Worship Leaders, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who came and supported us last week at our licensing service. For your kind wishes, we were most encouraged by your messages of support and prayers. Also thank you to the ladies for the very tasty refreshments which were laid on after the service.
