Newsletter – 14 August 2016

The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)
12th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY-PROPER 15 – Sunday 14th August

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

The Good News is not joyfully received by everyone. Those who try to spread the Gospel message often face hostility and rejection. We celebrate God’s presence and his victory over evil and death.

Almighty and everlasting God,
you are always more ready to hear than we to pray and to give more than either we desire or deserve: Pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy, forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid and giving us those good things which we are not worthy to ask but through the merits and mediation of 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.

THE READINGS (Page 1015/1017)
First Reading Jeremiah 23:23-29
God indicates the difference between true and false prophets.

Second Reading Hebrews 11: 29 -12:2
Devotion to God is built on a foundation of faith from which we proceed.

Gospel St. Luke 12:49-56
Christianity may lead to division between those who accept Christ and those who do not. The cost of discipleship can be higher than we realise.

God of all mercy, in this Eucharist you have set aside our sins
and given us your healing:
Grant that we who are made whole in Christ
may bring that healing to this broken world,
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Psalm 82 (Trevone only)
1 God has taken his stand in the council of heaven; ¨ in the midst of the gods he gives judgement:
2 ‘How long will you judge unjustly ¨ and show such favour to the wicked?
3 ‘You were to judge the weak and the orphan; ¨ defend the right of the humble and needy;
4 ‘Rescue the weak and the poor; ¨ deliver them from the hand of the wicked.
5 ‘They have no knowledge or wisdom; they walk on still in darkness: ¨ all the foundations of the earth are shaken.
6 ‘Therefore I say that though you are gods ¨ and all of you children of the Most High,
7 ‘Nevertheless, you shall die like mortals ¨ and fall like one of their princes.’
8 Arise, O God and judge the earth, ¨ for it is you that shall take all nations for
your possession.

‘Watts’ Knell’
The anniversary of the death of Nicholas Watts is on Sunday August 21st. Watts was a Padstow mariner who died in 1632 and left money to pay the ringers to ring in his memory each year. So our Sunday ringing on August 21st will be ‘Watts’ Knell’, in his memory.

A MASSIVE THANK YOU – to everyone who organized, helped, fetched and carried, donated prizes, collected, baked, manned stalls and entertained in any way for the Prideaux Place Garden Party and The Novelty Dog Show, Fete and BBQ . Special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Prideaux-Brune , also The Well Parc for being very generous hosts for these two events. A tremendous effort by everyone involved and I am sure you will all agree that a great time was had by everyone.
