The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)
4th Sunday after Trinity (Proper 7) Sunday 19th June

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

Today we are reminded that, however important our past, we are people of the present and future. Let us dedicate ourselves today to spread the gospel and offer to others the hope which God gives to us.

O God, the protector of all who trust in you, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us your mercy; that with you as our ruler and guide we may so pass through things temporal that we lose not our hold on things eternal; grant this, heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen

READINGS (Proper 7 – Page 969/971)
First Reading Isaiah 65:1-9
God constantly offers himself to a people who reject him and who act against his, and their own, interests. But salvation remains on offer to all.

Second Reading Galatians 3:23-29
Through Christ there is no distinction between us. Together we enjoy the freedom of family members in a new and more intimate relationship with God.

Gospel St. Luke 8:26-39
God can take us, in all our weakness, and recreate his damaged creation. Then he can send us away to do his work as though nothing had intervened. We are healed!

Eternal God, comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken,
you have fed us at the table of life and hope:
Teach us the ways of gentleness and peace,
that all the world may acknowledge
the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Psalm 22: 19-28 (Padstow only)
19 Be not far from me, O Lord; ¨ you are my strength; hasten to help me.
20 Deliver my soul from the sword, ¨ my poor life from the power of the dog.
21 Save me from the lion’s mouth, from the horns of wild oxen. ¨ You have answered me!
22 I will tell of your name to my people; ¨ in the midst of the congregation will I praise you.
23 Praise the Lord, you that fear him; ¨ O seed of Jacob, glorify him; stand in awe of him, O seed of Israel.
24 For he has not despised nor abhorred the suffering of the poor; neither has he hidden his face from them; ¨
but when they cried to him he heard them.
25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation; ¨ I will perform my vows in the presence of those that fear you.
26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied; ¨ those who seek the Lord shall praise him; their hearts shall live forever.
27 All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, ¨ and all the families of the nations shall bow before him.
28 For the kingdom is the Lord’s ¨ and he rules over the nations.
