Welcome:

A warm welcome is offered to all attending the services in the churches of this Chaplaincy.

Introduction and Call to Worship

We are called to be workers for justice. Let us reflect on injustice and consider our role in bringing God’s rule to an unruly world.

 

Collect

God, our judge and savior, teach us to be open to your truth and to trust in your love, that we may live each day with confidence in the salvation which is given through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

Hymns today.

497         O happy band of pilgrims, if onward ye will tred,

643         The God of love my shepherd is, and he that doth me feed;

534         O Praise ye the Lord! Praise him in the height;

386         Let there be loved shared among us, let there be love in our eyes.

Today’s Readings

First Reading Jeremiah 31:27-34

The days are coming when God will watch over the house of Israel to build and to plant. God will make a new and different covenant with the houses of Israel and of Judah. God’s Law will be written on their hearts.

Second Reading 2 Timothy 3:14 – 4:5

Paul encourages Timothy to continue in what he has learned. He explains that all scripture is inspired by God and urges him to continue to proclaim the message.

Gospel Luke 18:1-8

The story of the unjust judge, who grants a woman justice because she goes to ask him again and again. He explains that God will grant justice to those who continue to ask.

 

Introduction to the Peace.

God’s peaceable kingdom is very near to each one of us. The peace of the Lord…

 

Post Communion Prayer.

We praise and thank you, O Christ, for this sacred feast: for here we receive you, here the memory of your passion is renewed, here our minds are filled with grace, and here a pledge of future glory is given, when we shall feast at that table where you reign with all your saints for ever. Amen

 

Blessing

God grant you strength to stand up for what is right, and love to support those who are oppressed, and courage to uphold justice.  And the blessing of God almighty…


OTHER INFORMATION

Hotel Toiletries    Last week Pam and I visited Morocco and every evening there were toiletries provided, shampoo, soaps and bath gels etc. I have decided to collect these and give them to the food bank. I hope to be able to give a box of them this Christmas. So if you have any spare can I have them! When you go away please collect them for me. –Alwyn Carter

 

Quiz at Terri Lyndon’s    An enjoyable time testing the little grey cells and eating scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream. Terri raised €270 and would like to thank all those who helped at this event supporting chaplaincy funds.

 

Thoughts for this week.   One day you will tell your story of how you overcame your problems, then it will become someone else’s survival guide. And remember, when you replace “why is this happening to me” with “what is God trying to show me”, everything changes.

 

Prayer for the week.    My Father in Heaven, I know that I am not perfect, I know I sometimes forget to pray to you. I know sometimes I question my faith, I know sometimes I lose my temper, but I thank you for loving me unconditionally and giving me another day to start over again. Amen.
