Amen.Children’s Focus led by Teresa Johnson The Story of God’s PeopleA READING FROM THE BOOK OF JOB 23: 1-9, 16-17
Read by Dr. Steven Shubert1Then Job answered: 2“Today also my complaint isbitter; his hand is heavy despite my groaning. 3Oh,that I knew where I might ﬁnd him, that I mightcome even to his dwelling! 4I would lay my casebefore him, and ﬁll my mouth with arguments. 5Iwould learn what he would answer me, andunderstand what he would say to me. 6Would hecontend withme in the greatness of his power? No; but he wouldgive heed to me. 7There an upright person couldreason with him, and I should be acquitted foreverby my judge. 8If I go forward, he is not there; orbackward, I cannot perceive him; 9on the left hehides, and I cannot behold him; I turn to the right,but I cannot see him. 16God has made my heart faint;the Almighty has terriﬁed me; 17If only I could vanishin darkness, and thick darkness would cover myface!”Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.PSALM 22: 1-15 (sung) (Tone VIII.3)My God my God why have you for-sa-ken me? *and are so far from my cry and from the words of mydistress? O my God I cry in the daytime but you do not an-swer; *by night as well but I find no rest. Yet you are the Ho-ly One, *enthroned upon the prai-ses of Is-ra-el. Our forefathers put their trust in you; *they trusted and you de-li-ver’d them.
They cried out to you and were de-li-ver’d; *they trusted in you and were not put to shame. But as for me I am a worm and no man, *scorned by all and despised by the peo-ple. All who see me laugh me to scorn; *they curl their lips and wag their heads say-ing, “He trusted in the LORD let him de-li-ver him; *let him rescue him if he de-lights in him.” Yet you are he who took me out of the womb, *and kept me safe up-on my mo-ther’s breast. I have been entrusted to you ever since I was born; *you were my God when I was still in my mo-ther’s womb. Be not far from me for trouble is near, *and there is none to help. Many young bulls en-cir-cle me; *strong bulls of Ba-shan sur-round me. They open wide their jaws at me, *like a ravening and a roar-ing li-on. I am poured out like water / all my bones are out of joint;*my heart within my breast is mel-ting wax. My mouth is dried out like a potsherd / my tongue sticks tothe roof of my mouth; *and you have laid me in the dust of the grave.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 4: 12-16 Read by Sheila Cram Indeed, the word of God is living and active,12sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it
divides soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it isable to judge the thoughts and intentions of theheart. 13And before him no creature is hidden, but allare naked and laid bare to the eyes of the one towhom we must render an account. 14Since, then, wehave a great high priest who has passed through theheavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast toour confession. 15For we do not have a high priestwho is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses,but we have one who in every respect has beentested as we are, yet without sin. 16Let us thereforeapproach the throne of grace with boldness, so thatwe may receive mercy and ﬁnd grace to help in timeof need.Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaCantor: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!All: Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!Cantor: He trusted in the LORD let him de-li-ver him: let him rescue him if he de-lights in him.All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!Gospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And with thy spirit.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark 10: 17-31.All: Glory be to thee, O Lord.17As Jesus was setting out on a journey, a man ranup and knelt before him, and asked him, “GoodTeacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”18Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No
one is good but God alone. 19You know thecommandments: ‘You shall not murder; You shallnot commit adultery; You shall not steal; You shallnot bear false witness; You shall not defraud;Honour your father and mother.’” 20He said to him,“Teacher, I have kept all these since my youth.”21Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, “Youlack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give themoney to the poor, and you will have treasure inheaven; then come, follow me.” 22When he heardthis, he was shocked and went away grieving, for hehad many possessions. 23Then Jesus looked aroundand said to his disciples, “How hard it will be forthose who have wealth to enter the kingdom ofGod!” 24And the disciples wereperplexed at these words. But Jesus said to themagain, “Children, how hard it is to enter the kingdomof God! 25It is easier for a camel to go through theeye of a needle than for someone who is rich toenter the kingdom of God.” 26They were greatlyastounded and said to one another, “Then who canbe saved?” 27Jesus looked at them and said, “Formortals it isimpossible, but not for God; for God all things arepossible.” 28Peter began to say to him, “Look, wehave left everything and followed you.” 29Jesus said,“Truly I tell you, there is no one who has left houseor brothers or sisters or mother or father or childrenor ﬁelds, for my sake and for the sake of the goodnews, 30who will not receive a hundredfold now inthis age—houses, brothers and sisters, mothers and children,and ﬁelds with persecutions—and in the age to
come eternal life. 31But many who are ﬁrst will belast, and the last will be ﬁrst.”The Gospel of Christ.

Two weeks ago the organ prelude was by Samuel Wesley, who,as mentioned in the Music Notes, was notorious for fatheringchildren out of wedlock. He eventually married his firstrelationship, but left her for another woman with whom he hadfour more children, one of whom was Samuel Sebastian Wesley(1810-1876). S.S. Wesley was involved in church music froman early age, first as a boy chorister at the Chapel Royal andsubsequently as organist of Hereford, Exeter, Winchester andGloucester Cathedrals. He also composed a great deal of musicfor the church. One of his most popular anthems is “Lead me,Lord” which is extracted from a longer piece, “Praise the Lord,O my soul”.Alas, this morning’s final hymn was not included in our currenthymnbook; and had it been, the words would have been alteredsubstantially. We’re going back to the original text, from JohnBunyan’s allegory, “Pilgrim’s Progress”. It has been suggestedas a reflection on today’s gospel reading.“REMEMBERING”The choir is planning a special Remembrance Day concert onSunday 11 November at 4 pm. It will feature our choir and leadsingers with special guest Rob Crabtree, a Juno-nominatedbagpiper, all performing a variety of both sacred and secularmusic (Scottish, Welsh, English and Canadian) that is associatedwith both World Wars - and maybe a sing-along or two! Aprogramme is posted on various bulletin boards around thechurch. It would be a wonderful thing to fill the church for thisconcert, so please tell your friends and relatives. Advancetickets at $8 ($10 at the door) are now available from choirmembers and the church office. The money raised will be usedto support the Organ Restoration Fund. A Job vs. a Ministry
Someone has said there is a huge difference between having a job at church and having a ministry at church. If you are doing it because no one else will, it’s a job. If you are doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry If you are doing it just well enough to get by, it’s a job. If you are doing it to the best of your ability, it’s a ministry. If you’ll do it only so long as it doesn’t interfere with other activities, it’s a job. If you’re committed to staying with it even when it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry. It’s hard to get excited about a job. It’s almost impossible not to get excited about a ministry. An average church is filled with people doing jobs. A great church is filled with people involved in ministry.At the Advisory Board Meeting this past week, the variousMinistry Representatives discussed areas where we need morehelp. Please find below a list of areas where our Ministries arelacking in strength. If you are interested in joining ANY OFTHESE MINISTRIES, please see Rev. Dr. Harold Shepherd orany member of the Leadership Team.We would love to direct you to the appropriate Ministry Chairsof any of the following: the Chancel Guild , the OutreachProgram, the Sunday School, the Day Care Board, the SidesTeams, the Coffee Hour, the Lay Visitors, the Readers andthe Choir.
