6TH AFTER TRINITY (Proper 9) – SUNDAY JULY 8th 2018
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Prophets are called to speak out, to provide insight to people who do not see clearly. May we be inspired to speak out in our lives for justice and truth.
THE COLLECT FOR THE SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
Merciful God, you have prepared for those who love you
such good things as pass our understanding:
Pour into our hearts such love toward you
that we, loving you in all things and above all things,
may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire;
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 9 – Page 617 to 619 of Lectionary)
First Reading Ezekiel 2:1-5
The prophet Ezekiel is aware of his weakness compared with the God who asks him to bear a message to a stubborn people, who will not wish to hear it.
Second Reading 2 Corinthians 12:2-10
St Paul talks of his own visionary experience and of the physical impediment which reminds him of his weakness: his prophetic ability is a God-given gift.
Gospel St. Mark 6:1-13
Jesus, the uniquely embodied Word of God, like many a prophet is neither respected nor heeded by his own people; in contrast, his disciples travel abroad seeking a response from a less-prejudiced audience.
God of our pilgrimage, you have led us to the living water:
Refresh and sustain us as we go forward on our journey,
in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. 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.

SUCCESS FOR THE BENEFICE SAFARI SUPPER – What a great night was had by all that attended the Benefice Safari Supper. It was a fantastic Benefice effort, what fun we had .and it raised £689 which was a good effort to set against the expenses incurred for the two days of interviews for the new priest. A big thank you all who organized the event, to those people who provided and prepared the 3 course meal. Tim Bishop for driving the mini bus and ferrying people between venues, and thank you to the St. Merryn Ukele group for the entertainment …just a great night.
