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.
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
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.
195 From Heaven you came helpless babe, entered our world, your glory veiled
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
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…
Autumn Church Fayre. We would be very grateful for any donations for the Church fair on November 16 of items for raffle prizes. Vouchers, for example, for hairdressers or your favorite restaurant are always popular prizes, or bottles which can be made up into hampers or for the bottle stall - or anything you might think is appropriate. There is also a box outside Church for donations for toiletries which was a popular addition to the stalls at the last Fair. Many thanks. Chris, Mick and Pam."
Raffle tickets are now on sale at all 3 churches. Please take a book (or 2), if you cannot sell all the tickets, they can be returned. -Chris & Mick Coote
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.
