Amen. The Proclamation of the Word A READING FROM THE FIRST BOOK OF JEREMIAH Read by Michael Miller My joy is gone, grief is upon me, my heart is sick. Hark, the cry of my poor people from far and wide in the land: Is the Lord not in Zion? Is her King not in her? (“Why have they provoked me to anger with their images, with their foreign idols?”) The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” For the hurt of my poor people I am hurt, I mourn, and dismay has taken hold of me. Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then has the health of my poor people not been restored? O that my head were a spring of water, and my eyes a fountain of tears, so that I might weep day and night for the slain of my poor people! JEREMIAH 8:18—9:1 The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God. PSALM 79: 1-9 (Please remain seated for the psalm.) O God, the heathen have come into your inheritance / they have profaned your holy tem-ple; * they have made Jerusalem a heap of rub-ble. They have given the bodies of your servants as food for the birds of the air, * and the flesh of your faithful ones to the beasts of the field. They have shed their blood like water on every side of Je-ru-sa-lem, * and there was no one to bu-ry them. We have become a reproach to our neigh-bors, * an object of scorn and derision to those a-round us. How long will you be angry O LORD? * will your fury blaze like fire for e-ver? Pour out your wrath upon the heathen who have not known you * and upon the kingdoms that have not call’d u-pon your Name. For they have devoured Ja-cob * and made his dwel-ling a ru-in. Remember not our past sins / let your compassion be swift to meet us; * for we have been brought ve-ry low. Help us O God our Savior for the glory of your Name; * deliver us and forgive us our sins for your Name’s sake. Glory be to the Father and to the Son:
  3. 3. and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be: world without end. Amen A READING FROM THE FIRST LETTER OF PAUL TO TIMOTHY Read by Sheila Miller First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity. This is right and is acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour, who desires everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God; there is also one mediator between God and humankind, Christ Jesus, himself human, who gave himself a ransom for all—this was attested at the right time. For this I was appointed a herald and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 1 TIMOTHY 2:1–7 The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God. Gospel Alleluia Choir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia Cantor: Live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ: strive side by side for the faith of the gospel. All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia Gospeller: The Lord be with you. All: And also with you. Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke. All: Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ. Then Jesus said to the disciples, “There was a rich man who had a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was squandering his property. So he summoned him and said to him, ‘What is this that I hear about you? Give me an accounting of your management, because you cannot be my manager any longer.’ Then the manager said to himself, ‘What will I do, now that my master is taking the position away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg. I have decided what to do so that, when I am dismissed as manager, people may welcome me into their homes.’ So, summoning his master’s debtors one by one, he asked the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?’ He answered, ‘A hundred jugs of olive oil.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill, sit down quickly, and make it fifty.’ Then he asked another, ‘And how much do you owe?’ He replied, ‘A hundred containers of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill and make it eighty.’ And his master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly; for the children of this age are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than are the children of light. And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of dishonest wealth so that when it is gone, they may welcome you into the eternal homes. Whoever is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest also in much. If then you have not been faithful with the dishonest wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to another, who will give you what is your own? No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” LUKE 16:1–13 Gospeller: The Gospel of Christ: All: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. Homily: Fr Jonathan Eayrs Affirmation of Faith (Please stand as able.) The Apostles’ Creed p. 189 Prayers of the People led by Sue Ann Elite (Please kneel, as able, for the Prayers of the People)
  4. 4. Prayer of Confession Most merciful God we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, Have mercy on us and forgive us, that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your name. Amen. Almighty God have mercy upon you, pardon and deliver you from all your sins, confirm and strengthen you in all goodness, and keep you in eternal life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The Exchange of the Peace (We greet and exchange the Peace of Christ with our neighbours.) The Celebration of the Eucharist All who are baptized into Christ with water in the Name of the Holy Trinity are welcome to receive Holy Communion. If you will not be receiving, you are invited to come to the Communion rail for a blessing. Please indicate this by crossing your arms. Offertory Hymn “Dear Lord and Father of mankind” (Repton) Dear Lord and Father of mankind, Forgive our foolish ways; Reclothe us in our rightful mind, In purer lives Thy service find, In deeper reverence, praise. In simple trust like theirs who heard, Beside the Syrian sea, The gracious calling of the Lord, Let us, like them, without a word, Rise up and follow Thee. O Sabbath rest by Galilee, O calm of hills above, Where Jesus knelt to share with Thee The silence of eternity, Interpreted by love! With that deep hush subduing all Our words and works that drown The tender whisper of Thy call, As noiseless let Thy blessing fall As fell Thy manna down. Drop Thy still dews of quietness, Till all our strivings cease; Take from our souls the strain and stress, And let our ordered lives confess The beauty of Thy peace. Breathe through the heats of our desire Thy coolness and Thy balm; Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire; Speak through the earthquake, wind, and fire, O still, small voice of calm.
  5. 5. (During this hymn the gifts of bread and wine are presented and a collection is taken up.) Prayer over the Gifts: God of power, the glory of your works fills us with wonder and awe. Accept our offering this day, and help us to live in peace and harmony with all your creation, for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Eucharistic Prayer 1 p. 193 The Lord’s Prayer (sung) Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your Name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Save us from the time of trial, and deliver us from evil, For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours, now and for ever. Amen. The Breaking of the Bread Presider: “Creator of all, you gave us golden fields of wheat, whose many grains have been gathered and made into this one bread.” All: “So may your Church be gathered from the ends of the earth into your kingdom.” Communion Hymn 439 “Blest are the pure in heart” (Franconia) Doxology (All stand as able) Presider: Glory to God, All: whose power, working in us, can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine. Glory to God from generation to generation, in the Church and in Christ Jesus, for ever and ever. Amen. The Blessing Announcements Concluding Hymn 322 “All hail the power of Jesus’ Name” (Miles Lane) Dismissal: Deacon Grace Organ: Fugue in E minor BWV533 – Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) We welcome our new members, newcomers and visitors today.

  6. 6. Music Notes: This morning we are introducing something new – a different musical setting of those parts of the communion service that are sung by the whole congregation. There are a couple of reasons for this. The first is a desire to ‘set apart’ the penitential seasons of Advent and Lent, during which we’ll use the New Plainsong setting by David Hurd, and use the new one on all other non- BCP Sundays. Secondly, it is always a good thing to learn new music that will provide some variety in our worship. Given that Anglicans don’t easily embrace change (generally speaking, of course!), we’re asking that you give this music a chance to enter your hearts and minds. For the first few weeks we’ll use only the Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus Dei from this service, continuing with the New Plainsong Kyrie and Gloria. After everyone is comfortable with those we’ll introduce you to the Kyrie and Gloria. The composer of the Holy Trinity Communion Service is Christopher Tambling, born in England in 1964. After early organ studies in Sussex, he went on to gain organ scholarships to Canterbury Cathedral and St Peter's College, Oxford; he was also organist of Pusey House. Since 1997 he has been the Director of Music at Downside School near Bath. He is Organist and Master of the Schola Cantorum of Downside Abbey, a 90- strong choir of boys and girls drawn from the school, which regularly sings for services, recordings and concerts. Tambling is much in demand as a composer of accessible church and organ music, and has undertaken many commissions for schools and churches. He is a fellow of the Royal College of Organists.

  8. 8. COME TO CHURCH SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29th Whom are you inviting next Sunday? Inviting someone to come with you to church sounds like an easy thing to do, but in fact it isn’t as easy as it sounds. There are blockages we can come up against. We can feel unequal to answering the challenging questions we might be asked; extending an invitation can open up sensitive life issues we don’t feel equal to tackling. And underlying all of them there is the fear of rejection, and what might happen to our relationship. Is it really worth the risk? Well yes, I believe it is. I believe we can actually grow in our faith by facing our fears and probing into the discomfort level we may be feeling when it comes to extending an invitation. Let’s try to open up these blockages. First of all, we’re not being asked to explain the world or to make excuses for God. All we’re being asked to do is to invite a special person, who trusts us, whom we know, to come with us to church. If asked, we can say in a few words what belonging means to us, and leave it at that. We don’t have to persuade or twist arms. Success is one person inviting another person – and leaving the answer up to them and God. All we need to do is invite, and provide the opportunity. Remember Jesus’s reply to those who first came to him with lots of questions: he told them come along with me and see. “Come and see.” That’s our answer too. And of course we need to pray – for ourselves and those we wish to invite. Here’s a starter prayer: Welcoming God, thank you life. Thank you for making us and loving us. Thank you for inviting us to know you. Help us invite (your friend, family member, colleague’ name) to St Barnabas so we can all grow in knowledge and love of you. This we ask through Jesus your Son. Amen. Next Sunday YOU are invited! To an Open House at the Rectory Food and Refreshments September 29th 20 Bowden St Noon onwards following the 10:30 Eucharist CLERGY Fr.
