Amen.The Proclamation of the WordA READING FROM THE FIRST BOOK OF KINGS 18: 20-39Read by Michael MillerSo Ahab sent to all the Israelites, and assembled the prophets atMount Carmel. Elijah then came near to all the people, and said,“How long will you go limping with two different opinions? Ifthe Lord is God, follow him; but if Baal, then follow him.” The
people did not answer him a word. Then Elijah said to thepeople, “I, even I only, am left a prophet of the Lord; but Baal’sprophets number four hundred fifty. Let two bulls be given tous; let them choose one bull for themselves, cut it in pieces, andlay it on the wood, but put no fire to it; I will prepare the otherbull and lay it on the wood, but put no fire to it. Then you callon the name of your god and I will call on the name of the Lord;the god who answers by fire is indeed God.” All the peopleanswered, “Well spoken!” Then Elijah said to the prophets ofBaal, “Choose for yourselves one bull and prepare it first, foryou are many; then call on the name of your god, but put no fireto it.” So they took the bull that was given them, prepared it,and called on the name of Baal from morning until noon, crying,“O Baal, answer us!” But there was no voice, and no answer.They limped about the altar that they had made. At noon Elijahmocked them, saying, “Cry aloud! Surely he is a god; either heis meditating, or he has wandered away, or he is on a journey, orperhaps he is asleep and must be awakened.” Then they criedaloud and, as was their custom, they cut themselves with swordsand lances until the blood gushed out over them. As middaypassed, they raved on until the time of the offering of theoblation, but there was no voice, no answer, and no response.Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come closer to me”; and allthe people came closer to him. First he repaired the altar of theLord that had been thrown down; Elijah took twelve stones,according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, towhom the word of the Lord came, saying, “Israel shall be yourname”; with the stones he built an altar in the name of the Lord.Then he made a trench around the altar, large enough to containtwo measures of seed. Next he put the wood in order, cut thebull in pieces, and laid it on the wood. He said, “Fill four jarswith water and pour it on the burntoffering and on the wood.”Then he said, “Do it a second time”; and they did it a secondtime. Again he said, “Do it a third time”; and they did it a thirdtime, so that the water ran all around the altar, and filled thetrench also with water. At the time of the offering of theoblation, the prophet Elijah came near and said, “O Lord, Godof Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, let it be known this day that youare God in Israel, that I am your servant, and that I have done allthese things at your bidding. Answer me, O Lord, answer me, sothat this people may know that you, O Lord, are God, and thatyou have turned their hearts back.” Then the fire of the Lord felland consumed the burnt offering, the wood, the stones, and thedust, and even licked up the water that was in the trench. Whenall the people saw it, they fell on their faces and said, “The Lordindeed is God; the Lord indeed is God.”The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God.PSALM 96 (Tone VIII.2)Sing to the LORD a new song; *sing to the LORD all the whole earth.Sing to the LORD and bless his Name; *proclaim the good news of his sal-va-tion from day to day.Declare his glory among the na-tions *and his wonders a-mong all peo-ples.For great is the LORD and greatly to be prais’d; *he is more to be fear’d than all gods.As for all the gods of the nations they are but i-dols; *but it is the LORD who made the heav-ens.Oh the majesty and magnificence of his pre-sence! *Oh the power and the splendour of his sanc-tu-ar-y!Ascribe to the LORD you families of the peo-ples; *ascribe to the LORD hon-our and pow’r.Ascribe to the LORD the honour due his Name; *bring offerings and come in-to his courts.Worship the LORD in the beauty of ho-li-ness; *let the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.Tell it out among the nations “The LORD is King! *he has made the world so firm that it cannot be moved / hewill judge the peo-ples with e-qui-ty.”Let the heavens rejoice and let the earth be glad / let the seathunder and all that is in it; * let the field be joyful and all that isthere-in.Then shall all the trees of the wood shout for joy before theLORD when he comes, *when he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with right-eous-ness *and the peo-ples with his truth.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 OF PAUL TO THE GALATIANS 1:1–12Read by Elizabeth FowlerPaul an apostle—sent neither by human commission nor fromhuman authorities, but through Jesus Christ and God the Father,who raised him from the dead—and all the members of God’sfamily who are with me, To the churches of Galatia: Grace to youand peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, whogave himself for our sins to set us free from the present evil age,according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the gloryforever and ever. Amen. I am astonished that you areso quickly deserting the one who called you in the grace of Christand are turning to a different gospel—not that there is anothergospel, but there are some who are confusing you andwant to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angelfrom heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what weproclaimed to you, let that one be accursed! As we have saidbefore, so now I repeat, if anyone proclaims to you a gospelcontrary to what you received, let that one be accursed! Am I nowseeking human approval, or God’s approval? Or am I trying toplease people? If I were still pleasing people, I would not be aservant of Christ. For I want you to know, brothers and sisters,that the gospel that was proclaimed by me is not of human origin;for I did not receive it from a human source, nor was I taught it,but I received it through a revelation of Jesus Christ.The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God.Gospel AlleluiaChoir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaAll: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaCantor: Honour and majesty are before him:strength and beauty are in his sanctuaryAll: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluiaGospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And also with you.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christaccording to Luke 7: 1-10.All: Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.After Jesus had finished all his sayings in the hearing of thepeople, he entered Capernaum. A centurion there had a slavewhom he valued highly, and who was ill and close to death.When he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders to him,asking him to come and heal his slave. When they came to Jesus,they appealed to him earnestly, saying, “He is worthyof having you do this for him, for he loves our people, and it is hewho built our synagogue for us.” And Jesus went with them, butwhen he was not far from the house, the centurion sentfriends to say to him, “Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am notworthy to have you come under my roof; therefore I did notpresume to come to you. But only speak the word, and let myservant be healed. For I also am a man set under authority, withsoldiers under me; and I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes, and toanother, ‘Come,’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and theslave does it.” When Jesus heard this he was amazed at him, andturning to the crowd that followed him, he said, “I tell you,not even in Israel have I found such faith.” When those who hadbeen sent returned to the house, they found the slave in goodhealth.Gospeller: The Gospel of Christ:All: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.Homily: Fr Jonathan EayrsAffirmation of Faith (Please stand as able.)
