“Weekly News” for
THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW
ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR
September 17th 2017– 14th Sunday After Trinity – (Proper 19)
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.
Introduction to worship
When we turn our faces towards God and call upon his mercy our sins are forgiven. In God’s presence, as we share our worship, we become reconciled to each other and to the one who made us in love.
THE COLLECT FOR THE FOURTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
Almighty God, whose only Son has opened for us
a new and living way into your presence:
Give us pure hearts and steadfast wills
to worship you in spirit and in truth;
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.
THE READINGS – Lectionary Pages 306/308
First Reading Genesis 50:15-21
God knows when others try to harm us. But if we can forgive them, then God can turn a sorrowful situation into good – for us and for them
Second Reading Romans 14:1-12
Paul deals here with practical aspects of the Christian life. Here he appeals for Christians to bear with their brothers and sisters who have weaker consciences.
Gospel St. Matthew 18:21-35
Jesus has been teaching his disciples about how to deal with Christians who sin against them. Peter wants to know how often he should forgive such people.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Lord God, the source of truth and love,
keep us faithful to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship,
united in prayer and the breaking of bread,
and one in joy and simplicity of heart,
in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

DIOCESCAN ROADSHOW FOR THE DEANERY OF PYDAR –‘ Responding to God’s Grace’. Our roadshow this year is aimed at those who care about the future of the Church in Cornwall and see themselves as active disciples, seeking to contribute to the life of the church and to the discovery of God’s Kingdom.
Being a follower of Jesus is about responding to what God has already given us in terms of his unconditional love, his forgiveness, his involvement in our lives and his overwhelming generosity. In this year’s roadshow, we will look afresh at what God’s grave involves, and explore five practical areas in which our responses can be grounded.
The roadshow takes place on Tuesday, 31st October at St. Erme Community Centre, Cattle Field, Trispen, Truro.
Please do come and join us, and encourage others in your parishes to come too.
WE NEED YOU TO JOIN OUR TEAM – We must keep the bells ringing in Padstow and to do that we need more ringers. We will be starting a teaching course soon,
