7TH AFTER TRINITY (Proper 10) – SUNDAY JULY 15th 2018
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Through Christ Jesus we, who were once far off, have been brought near to God. Let us rejoice and worship him through this Eucharist.
THE COLLECT FOR THE SEVENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things:
graft in our hearts the love of your name,
increase in us true religion, nourish us with all goodness,
and of your great mercy keep us in the same;
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
READINGS (Proper 10 – Page 622 to 624 of Lectionary)
First Reading Amos 7:7-15
Amos set before the people a challenge that they do not like. The plumb-line reveals their fallen ways and he finds himself attacked for speaking that which is true.
Second Reading Ephesians 1:3-14
Thanks to Jesus, God the Father has accepted his children and wants them to share and enjoy that which Christ has already known. There is good reason to give thanks and praise.
Gospel St. Mark 6:14-29
John, a worthy prophet, finds his challenge is too much for King Herod. The contrast between that which is true and that which is false is clearly demonstrated in this grim tale.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Lord God, whose Son is the true vine and the source of life,
ever giving himself that the world may live:
May we so receive within ourselves the power of his death and passion that, in his saving cup, we may share his glory and be made perfect in his love; for he is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen
THE CHILDREN’S SOCIETY COLLECTION BOXES
Please will holders of boxes bring them to any service at the Parish Church this month, when they will be kept in the vestry until I can take them away for emptying, so that the proceeds can be sent to the Society. When emptied and re-labelled, I will return them to the back of the church for collecting by their holders. I shall be glad of people’s telephone numbers, the records of some of which are now wrong; also, if anyone cannot get to church, please ring me to arrange for it to be fetched.
