Amen.Children’s Focus led by Teresa Johnson The Story of God’s PeopleA READING FROM THE BOOK OF JOB 42: 1-6, 10-17
Read by Esma BrathwaiteThen Job answered the Lord: “I know that you can doall things, and that no purpose of yours can bethwarted. ‘Who is this that hides counsel withoutknowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did notunderstand, things too wonderful for me, which I didnot know. ‘Hear, and I will speak; I will question you,and you declare to me.’ I had heard of you by thehearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you;therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust andashes.” And the Lord restored the fortunes of Jobwhen he had prayed for his friends; and the Lordgave Job twice as much as he had before. Then therecame to him all his brothers and sisters and all whohad known him before, and they ate bread with himin his house; they showed him sympathy andcomforted him for all the evil that the Lord hadbrought upon him; and each of them gave him a piece of moneyand a gold ring. The Lord blessed the latter days of Job morethan his beginning; and he had fourteen thousand sheep, sixthousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousanddonkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters. He namedthe first Jemimah, the second Keziah, and the third Keren-happuch. In all the land there were no women so beautiful asJob’s daughters; and their father gave them an inheritance alongwith their brothers. After this Job lived one hundred and fortyyears, and saw his children, and his children’s children, fourgenerations. And Job died, old and full of days.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.PSALM 34: 1-8 (sung)
I will bless the LORD at all times; * his praise shall ever be in my mouth. I will glory in the LORD; * let the humble hear and re-joice. Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD; * let us exalt his Name to-ge-ther. I sought the LORD, and he answered me * and delivered me out of all my ter-ror. Look upon him and be rad-i-ant, * and let not your fa-ces be a-sham’d. I called in my affliction and the LORD heard me * and saved me from all my trou-bles. The angel of the LORD encompasses those who fear him, * and he will de-li-ver them. Taste and see that the LORD is good; * happy are they who trust in him!Glory be to the Father and to the Son: and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit.As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be: world with-out end A-men.A READING FROM THE LETTER TO THE HEBREWS 7: 23-28Read by Louise MacKenzieFurthermore, the former priests were many in number, becausethey were prevented by death from continuing in office; but heholds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever.Consequently he is able for all time to save those who approachGod through him, since he always lives to make intercession forthem. For it was fitting that we should have such a high priest,holy, blameless, undefiled, separated from sinners, and exaltedabove the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he has no needto offer sacrifices day after day, first for his own sins, and then
for those of the people; this he did once for all when he offeredhimself. For the law appoints as high priests those who aresubject to weakness, but the word of the oath, which came laterthan the law, appoints a Son who has been made perfect forever.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.Gospel Alleluia Choir: Alleluia Alleluia AlleluiaAll: Alleluia Alleluia AlleluiaCantor: Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD: let us exalt his Name to-ge-ther.All: Alleluia Alleluia AlleluiaGospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark 10: 46-52.All: Glory be to thee, O Lord.They came to Jericho. As Jesus and his disciples anda large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus sonof Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by theroadside. When he heard that it was Jesus ofNazareth, he began to shout out and say, “Jesus, Sonof David, have mercy on me!” Many sternly orderedhim to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly,“Son of David, have mercy on me!” Jesus stood stilland said, “Call him here.” And they called the blindman, saying to him, “Take heart; get up, he is callingyou.” So throwing off his cloak, he sprang up andcame to Jesus. Then Jesus said to him, “What do youwant me to do for you?” The blind man said to him,“My teacher, let me see again.” Jesus said to him,
“Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately heregained his sight and followed him on the way.The Gospel of Christ.

Charles Hamilton Sorley (1895 – 1915) was a British WorldWar I poet who was shot during the Battle of Loos, and whoselife and work are commemorated on a stone in Poet’s Corner,Westminster Abbey. The text of today’s anthem is taken fromthe final two verses of Sorley’s “Expectans,expectavi” (translated as ‘I waited patiently’) ... here are theopening verses:From morn to night, all day through,I laugh and play as others do,I sin and chatter, just the sameAs others with a different name.And all year long upon the stage,I dance and tumble and do rageSo vehemently, I scarcely seeThe inner and eternal me.I have a temple I do notVisit, a heart I have forgot,A self shrine—and yet, and yet …As a composer, Charles Wood (1866-1926) exhibited"fastidious taste and fine scholarship". Wood was an importantteacher at Cambridge University where he became Professor ofMusic in 1924 following Stanfords death. “Expectansexpectavi” was published in 1919. It is slightly unusual in itsconstruction: it has a short and effective pianissimo coda, and abar of silence before the build-up to the climax begins.
