Amen.Children’s Focus led by the Rev. Dr. Harold ShepherdThe Story of God’s PeopleA READING FROM THE BOOK OF JOB 38: 1-7 Read by Everod MillerThen the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind: “Who is thisthat darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Gird upyour loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare
to me. Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined itsmeasurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the lineupon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid itscornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all theheavenly beings shouted for joy?”Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God. PSALM 104: 1-9, 25, 37 (sung)Bless the LORD O my soul; *O LORD my God how excellent is your greatness / you areclothed with ma-jes-ty and splen-dour.You wrap yourself with light as with a cloak *and spread out the heavens like a cur-tain.You lay the beams of your chambers in the wa-ters a-bove; *you make the clouds your chariot / you ride on the wings of thewind.You make the winds your mes-sen-gers *and flames of fire your ser-vants.You have set the earth upon its foun-da-tions, *so that it never shall move at a-ny time.You covered it with the Deep as with a man-tle; *the waters stood higher than the moun-tains.At your rebuke they fled; *at the voice of your thunder they has-ten’d a-way.They went up into the hills and down to the val-leysbeneath, *to the places you had ap-point-ed for them.You set the limits that they should not pass; * they shall not again co-ver the earth.
O LORD how man-i-fold are your works *in wisdom you have made them all / the earth is full of yourcrea-tures.Bless the LORD O my soul. *Hal-le-lu-jah!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 e-ver shall be: world with-out end A-men.A READING FROM THE BOOK OF HEBREWS 5:1-10 Read byHelen TaylorEvery high priest chosen from among mortals is put in charge ofthings pertaining to God on their behalf, to offer gifts andsacrifices for sins. He is able to deal gently with the ignorantand wayward, since he himself is subject to weakness; andbecause of this he must offer sacrifice for his own sins as wellas for those of the people. And one does not presume to takethis honour, but takes it only when called by God, just as Aaronwas. So also Christ did not glorify himself in becoming a highpriest, but was appointed by the one who said to him, “Youare my Son, today I have begotten you”; as he says also inanother place, “You are a priest forever, according to the orderof Melchizedek.” In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered upprayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to the onewho was able to save him from death, and he was heard becauseof his reverent submission. Although he was a Son, he learnedobedience through what he suffered; and having been madeperfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all whoobey him, having been designated by God a high priestaccording to the order of Mel-chizedek.
Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaChoir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!All: Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!Cantor: You make the winds your messengers, And flames of fire your servantsAll: 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: 35-45.All: Glory be to thee, O Lord.James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came forward to Jesusand said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whateverwe ask of you.” And he said to them, “What is it you want meto do for you?” And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one atyour right hand and one at your left, in your glory.” But Jesussaid to them, “You do not know what you are asking. Are youable to drink the cup that I drink, or be baptized with thebaptism that I am baptized with?” They replied, “We are able.”Then Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you will drink;and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will bebaptized; but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine togrant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” Whenthe ten heard this, they began to be angry with James and John.So Jesus called them and said to them, “You know that amongthe Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lordit over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it isnot so among you; but whoever wishes to become great amongyou must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among
you must be slave of all. For the Son of Man came not to beserved but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”The Gospel of Christ.
