The Proclamation of the Word A READING FROM THE FIRST BOOK OF JEREMIAH Read by Dr. Steven Shubert The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Come, go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him. Then the word of the Lord came to me: Can I not do with you, O house of Israel, just as this potter has done? says the Lord. Just like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel. At one moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, but if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will change my mind about the disaster that I intended to bring on it. And at another moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it, but if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will change my mind about the good that I had intended to do to it. Now, therefore, say to the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: Thus says the Lord: Look, I am a potter shaping evil against you and devising a plan against you. Turn now, all of you from your evil way, and amend your ways and your doings. JEREMIAH 18:1–11 The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God. PSALM 139: 1-5, 12-17 (Tone IV.6) LORD, you have searched me out and known me; * you know my sitting down and my rising up / you discern my thoughts from a-far. You trace my journeys and my res-ting-places * and are acquainted with all my ways. Indeed, there is not a word on my lips, * but you O LORD know it al-to-ge-ther. You press upon me behind and before * and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too won-der-ful for me; * it is so high that I cannot attain to it. For you yourself created my in-most parts;* you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I will thank you because I am mar-v’-lous-ly made; * your works are wonderful and I know it well. My body was not hid-den from you,* while I was being made in secret / and woven in the depths of the earth.
  3. 3. Your eyes beheld my limbs yet unfinished in the womb / all of them were written in your book; * they were fashioned day by day / when as yet there was none of them. How deep I find your thoughts O God! * how great is the sum of them! If I were to count them they would be more in number than the sand; * to count them all my life span would need to be like yours. Glory be to the Father and to the Son: and to the Holy Spi-rit. As it was in the beginning is now and e-ver shall be: world without end A-men. A READING FROM THE LETTER OF PAUL TO PHILEMON Read by Elizabeth Fowler Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, To Philemon our dear friend and co-worker, to Apphia our sister, to Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in your house: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. When I remember you in my prayers, I always thank my God because I hear of your love for all the saints and your faith toward the Lord Jesus. I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective when you perceive all the good that we may do for Christ. I have indeed received much joy and encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, my brother. For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty, yet I would rather appeal to you on the basis of love—and I, Paul, do this as an old man, and now also as a prisoner of Christ Jesus. I am appealing to you for my child, Onesimus, whose father I have become during my imprisonment. Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is indeed useful both to you and to me. I am sending him, that is, my own heart, back to you. I wanted to keep him with me, so that he might be of service to me in your place during my imprisonment for the gospel; but I preferred to do nothing without your consent, in order that your good deed might be voluntary and not something forced. Perhaps this is the reason he was separated from you for a while, so that you might have him back forever, no longer as a slave but more than a slave, a beloved brother—especially to me but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord. So if you consider me your partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. If he has wronged you in any way, or owes you anything, charge that to my account. I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand: I will repay it. I say nothing about your owing me even your own self. Yes, brother, let me have this benefit from you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ. Confident of your obedience, I am writing to you, knowing that you will do more than I say. PHILEMON 1–21 The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God. Gospel Alleluia Choir: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia Cantor: Let your face shine upon your servant: and teach me your statutes. 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. Now large crowds were travelling with Jesus; and he turned and said to them, “Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it will begin to ridicule him, saying, ‘This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.’ Or what king, going out to wage war against another king, will not sit down
  4. 4. first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand? If he cannot, then, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for the terms of peace. So therefore, none of you can become my disciple if you do not give up all your possessions.” LUKE 14:25–33 Gospeller: The Gospel of Christ: All: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

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.

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.

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 624 “O Thou who camest from above” (Hereford)

V V V Music Notes: A warm welcome to the choir, returning this morning after a refreshing summer break. The next year will be an interesting one, with lots of new and challenging music to learn – and to make it a total success we need more singers. All voice parts are welcome, but a special red carpet will be rolled out for basses. Our goal for the past two years has been to increase our number to 24 singers – an achievable goal, with everyone’s help. If you know anyone who might be interested (parishioners or non-parishioners) please have them get in touch with Neil by phone (416-410-1504), email (nshoulton@gmail.com) or see me after a service. Work on the organ has been a bit slower than anticipated for a variety of reasons. First, the week or so of intense heat in mid- July and again for a few days at the end of August made for intolerable working conditions inside the organ. Secondly, as often happens, various unexpected repairs were necessary, including the complete rebuilding of what is called the ‘swell concussion’ (a kind of bellows) and extensive repairs to a lot of the pipework. Be assured that John Struve is doing thorough and painstakingly meticulous work which he hopes to complete in the next couple of weeks. He is at the point now of replacing the pipework, and the regulation and tuning of these pipes will follow shortly. Today’s Liturgical Team: Presider & Homilist: Fr. Jonathan Eayrs Deacon: The Rev.
