The Church in the Marketplace Embracing the Community 10:30 AM MORNING PRAYER The 10:30 AM service begins on page 4 of the grey Morning Prayer booklet. The hymns can be found in the blue book of Common Praise.Organ Prelude Meditation on the name of BACH - Herbert BrewerOpening Hymn 435 “Take my life and let it be” (Mozart)Exhortation p. 4Confession and Absolution p. 5The Lord’s PrayerVenite (vv. 1-7) p. 7PSALM 14 (Please remain seated.)The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” All are corrupt and commit abominable acts; there is none who does any good.The Lord looks down from heaven upon us all, to see if there is any who is wise, if there is one who seeks after God.Every one has proved faithless;all alike have turned bad; there is none who does good; no, not one.Have they no knowledge, all those evildoers who eat up my people like bread and do not call upon the Lord?See how they tremble with fear, because God is in the company of the righteous.
Their aim is to confound the plans of the afflicted, but the Lord is their refuge.Oh, that Israel’s deliverance would come out of Zion! when the Lord restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Ghost;As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.First ReadingA READING FROM THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THE EPHESIANS 3:14-21 read by Helen TaylorI bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family inheaven and on earth takes its name. I pray that, according to theriches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthenedin your inner being with power through his Spirit, and thatChrist may dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are beingrooted and grounded in love. I pray that you may have thepower to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadthand length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christthat surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all thefullness of God. Now to him who by the power at work withinus is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can askor imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus toall generations, forever and ever. Amen.Hear what the Spirit is saying to the God’s People:Thanks be to God.Jubilate Deo p. 11Second Reading
A READING FROM THE GOSPEL OF JOHN 6: 1-21 read by Darryl NakamotoAfter this Jesus went to the other side of the Sea of Galilee, alsocalled the Sea of Tiberias. A large crowd kept following him,because they saw the signs that he was doing for the sick. Jesuswent up the mountain and sat down there with his disciples.Now the Passover, the festival of the Jews, was near. When helooked up and saw a large crowd coming toward him, Jesus saidto Philip, “Where are we to buy bread for these people to eat?”He said this to test him, for he himself knew what he was goingto do. Philip answered him, “Six months’ wages would not buyenough bread for each of them to get a little.” One of hisdisciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, said to him, “There isa boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish. But whatare they among so many people?” Jesus said, “Make the peoplesit down.” Now there was a great deal of grass in the place; sothey sat down, about five thousand in all. Then Jesus took theloaves, and when he had given thanks, he distributed them tothose who were seated; so also the fish, as much as they wanted.When they were satisfied, he told his disciples, “Gather up thefragments left over, so that nothing may be lost.” So theygathered them up, and from the fragments of the five barleyloaves, left by those who had eaten, they filled twelve baskets.When the people saw the sign that he had done, they began tosay, “This is indeed the prophet who is to come into theworld.” When Jesus realized that they were about to come andtake him by force to make him king, he withdrew again to themountain by himself. When evening came, his disciples wentdown to the sea, got into a boat, and started across the sea toCapernaum. It was now dark, and Jesus had not yet come tothem. The sea became rough because a strong wind wasblowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, theysaw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and
they were terrified. But he said to them, “It is I; do not beafraid.” Then they wanted to take him into the boat, andimmediately the boat reached the land toward which they weregoing.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.Benedictus p. 10Creed, Versicles & Responses p. 11Collect for the Day: O God, the protector of all who trust inyou, increase and multiply upon us your mercy, that withyou as our ruler and guide, we may so pass through thingstemporal, that we lose not the things eternal; through JesusChrist our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the HolySpirit, one God, for ever and ever.
