Children’s Focus led by Mara HarrrisThe Proclamation of the WordA READING FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS 9: 36-43Read by Dr. Steven ShubertNow in Joppa there was a disciple whose name wasTabitha, which in Greek is Dorcas. She was devotedto good works and acts of charity. At that time shebecame ill and died. When they had washed her,they laid her in a room upstairs. Since Lydda wasnear Joppa, the disciples, who heard that Peter wasthere, sent two men to him with the request, “Pleasecome to uswithout delay.” So Peter got up and went with them;and when he arrived, they took him to the roomupstairs. All the widows stood beside him, weepingand showing tunics and other clothing that Dorcashad made while she was with them. Peter put all ofthem outside, and then he knelt down and prayed.He turned to the body and said, “Tabitha, get up.”Then sheopened her eyes, and seeing Peter, she sat up. Hegave her his hand and helped her up. Then callingthe saints and widows, he showed her to be alive.This became known throughout Joppa, and manybelieved in the Lord. Meanwhile he stayed in Joppafor some time with a certain Simon, a tanner.The word of the Lord.Thanks be to God.
PSALM 23 (metrical) Hymn 520 “The King of Love myShepherd is”A READING FROM THE BOOK OF REVELATION TOJOHN 7: 9-17 Read by Fiona StrachanAfter this I looked, and there was a great multitudethat no one could count, from every nation, from alltribes and peoples and languages, standing beforethe throne and before the Lamb, robed in white, withpalm branches in their hands. They cried out in aloud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our Godwho is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb!” Andall the angels stood around the throne and aroundthe elders and the four living creatures, and they fellon their faces before the throneand worshipped God, singing, “Amen! Blessing andglory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour andpower and might be to our God forever and ever!Amen.” Then one of the eldersaddressed me, saying, “Who are these, robed inwhite, and where have they come from?” I said tohim, “Sir, you are the one that knows.” Then he saidto me, “These are they who havecome out of the great ordeal; they have washed theirrobes and made them white in the blood of theLamb. For this reason they are before the throne ofGod, and worship him day and night within histemple, and the one who is seated on the throne willshelter them. They will hunger no more, and thirstno more; thesun will not strike them, nor any scorching heat; forthe Lamb at the centre of the throne will be their
shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of thewater of life, and God will wipe awayevery tear from their eyes.”The word of the Lord.Thanks be to God.Gospel Alleluia:Choir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaAll: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaCantor: I am the good shepherd, says the LordI know my own sheep and my ownknow me.All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaGospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And also with you.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christaccording to John 10: 22-30.All: Glory be to thee, O Lord.At that time the festival of the Dedication took placein Jerusalem. It was winter, and Jesus was walking inthe temple, in the portico of Solomon. So the Jewsgathered around himand said to him, “How long will you keep us insuspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”Jesus answered, “I have told you, and you do notbelieve. The works that I do in myFather’s name testify to me; but you do not believe,because you do not belong to my sheep. My sheephear my voice. I know them, and they follow me. Igive them eternal life, andthey will never perish. No one will snatch them outof my hand. What my Father has given me is greater
than all else, and no one can snatch it out of theFather’s hand. The Father and Iare one.”Gospeller: The Gospel of Christ:All: Praise be to thee, O Christ.Homily Fr Jonathan EayrsAffirmation of Faith (Please stand as able.)The Nicene Creed p. 234Prayers of the People led by Sue Ann Elite(Please kneel, as able, for the Prayers of the People)The Peace(We stand and exchange the peace of Christ with ourneighbours.)The Celebration of the EucharistAll who are baptized into Christ with water in the Name of the HolyTrinity are welcome to receive Holy Communion.
