Sunday Mornings @ 10:30am

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

1 Kings 21:1-21a; Psalm 5:1-8; Galatians 2:15-21; Luke 7:36-8:3



Without Pentecost the Christ-event – the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus – 

 remains imprisoned in history as something to remember, think about and reflect on. 

 The Spirit of Jesus comes to dwell within us, so that we can become living Christs here and now.

Henri Nouwen

Dear Friends

 In our prayers this week we pray for:

– our clergy and churches;

– those who are sick, suffering, fearful or in need, remembering those suffering from COVID-19 and their caregivers, those feeling isolated and those who are vulnerable;

– for peace within our country, and in the world;

– those who have died and those who mourn;

– the victims of violence and natural disasters;

– our Indigenous brothers and sisters, especially remembering their hurt and grief at this time;

– refugees, remembering those fleeing the Taliban regime, and those fleeing war in the Ukraine.

Prayer for Peace: 

Oh God, it is your will to hold both heaven and earth in a single peace. Let the design of your great love shine on the waste of our wraths and sorrows, and give peace to your Church, peace among nations, peace in our homes, and peace in our hearts;  through your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen (BAS) pg 677

Pentecost came with the sound of a mighty rushing wind, a violent blast from heaven!

Heaven has not exhausted its blasts, but our danger is we are getting frightened of them.
