“Weekly News” for
THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW
ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY
with ST. PETROC MINOR
January 28th 2018 – FOURTH SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY
A warm welcome to any visitors with us today
In this season of Epiphany, we are invited to look at the ways in which Jesus reveals his Divine nature. Today we hear of the authority of Jesus as he commands the unclean spirit to come out of the man possessed.
God our creator,
who in the beginning commanded the light to shine out of darkness:
we pray that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ
may dispel the darkness of ignorance and unbelief,
shine into the hearts of all your people,
and reveal the knowledge of your glory
in the face 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 for ever. Amen
First Reading Deuteronomy 18:15-20
The Old Testament promise of a prophet sent from God, which the Apostles found fulfilled in Christ.
Second Reading Revelation 12:1-5a
The vision of St. John the Divine continues with the sight of “a woman clothed with the sun. She gave birth to a child who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron”.
Gospel St. Mark 1:21-28
The authority of Jesus is without question. The man with the unclean spirit was healed when Jesus drove it. “He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him”.
Generous Lord, in word and Eucharist we have proclaimed the mystery of your love: Help us so to live out our days that we may be signs of your wonders in the world; through Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen

‘A CORNISH CELTIC WAY’
Discover a new 125-mile Pilgrimage Route through Cornwall, from St Germans to St. Michael’s Mount
Please join us for the official book launch of ‘A Cornish Celtic Way’ at Truro Cathedral on Sunday 4th February 2018.
The launch will take place at 5pm following an evensong service which will begin at 4pm at which Bishop Chris Goldsmith will talk on the subject of pilgrimage. There will be refreshments served at the launch. All welcome!
Many of you will remember last year, two groups of pilgrims walking and trying out the walk from Padstow to Constantine Bay last year, with the Revd. Nigel Marns and Revd. Kirsten Norfolk as they tried and tested this section of the route. All the walks have now been done and collated to produce a great book.
Copies of the Reverend Nigel Marns’ book will be available to buy from Padstow very shortly. The cost is £12 with £2 from each book going to Padstow Church. If you would like to pre-order a copy please contact Sue Norfolk.
*Spring is on its way so we have planned our first led walk for 2018.*
