Amen.The Story of God’s PeopleA READING FROM THE SECOND BOOK OFSAMUEL 1: 1, 17-27 read by Everod MillerAfter the death of Saul, when David had returnedfrom defeating the Amalekites, David remained twodays in Ziklag. David intoned this lamentation overSaul and his son Jonathan.
  3. 3. (He ordered that The Song of the Bow be taught tothe people of Judah; it is written in the Book ofJashar.) He said: Your glory, O Israel, lies slain uponyour high places! How the mighty have fallen! Tell itnot in Gath, proclaim it not in the streets ofAshkelon; or the daughters of the Philistines willrejoice, thedaughters of the uncircumcised will exult. Youmountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew or rainupon you, nor bounteous fields! For there the shieldof the mighty was defiled, the shield of Saul,anointed with oil no more. From the blood of theslain, from the fat of the mighty, the bow ofJonathan did not turn back, nor the sword of Saulreturn empty. Saul and Jonathan,beloved and lovely! In life and in death they were notdivided; they were swifter than eagles, they werestronger than lions. O daughters of Israel, weep overSaul, who clothed you with crimson, in luxury, whoput ornaments of gold on your apparel. How themighty have fallen in the midst of the battle!Jonathan lies slain upon your high places. I amdistressed for you, my brother Jonathan; greatlybeloved were you to me; your love to me waswonderful, passing the love of women. How themighty have fallen, and the weapons of warperished!Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.PSALM 130 (Please remain seated as we read the Psalm)Out of the depths have I called to you, O Lord;
  4. 4. Lord, hear my voice; let your ears consider well the voice of my supplication. If you, Lord, were to note what is done amiss, O Lord, who could stand?For there is forgiveness with you; therefore you shall be feared.I wait for the Lord; my soul waits for him; in his word is my hope.My soul waits for the Lord,more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.O Israel, wait for the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy;With him there is plenteous redemption, and he shall redeem Israel from all their sins.Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.A READING FROM THE SECOND LETTER OF PAUL TO THECORINTHIANS 8: 7-15 read by Helen TaylorNow as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech,in knowledge, in utmost eagerness, and in our lovefor you—so we want you to excel also in thisgenerous undertaking. I do not saythis as a command, but I am testing the genuinenessof your love against the earnestness of others. Foryou know the
  5. 5. generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that thoughhe was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, sothat by his poverty you might become rich. And inthis matter I am giving my advice: it is appropriatefor you who began last year not only to dosomething but even to desire to do something—nowfinish doing it, so that your eagerness may bematched by completing it according to your means.For if the eagerness is there, the gift is acceptableaccording to what one has—not according towhat one does not have. I do not mean that thereshould be relief for others and pressure on you, butit is a question of a fair balance between yourpresent abundance and their need, so that theirabundance may be for your need, in order that theremay be a fair balance. As it is written, “The one whohad much didnot have too much, and the one who had little didnot have too little.”Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.The GospelThe Lord be with you: And also with you.The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according toMark 5: 21-43.Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, agreat crowd gathered around him; and he was by the sea. Thenone of the leaders of the synagogue named Jairus came and,
  6. 6. when he saw him, fell at his feet and begged him repeatedly,“My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay yourhands on her, so that she may be made well, and live.” So hewent with him. And a large crowd followed him and pressed inon him. Now there was a woman who had been suffering fromhaemorrhages for twelve years. She had endured much undermany physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was nobetter, but rather grew worse. She had heard about Jesus, andcame up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for shesaid, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.”Immediately her haemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her bodythat she was healed of her disease. Immediately aware thatpower had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowdand said, “Who touched my clothes?” And his disciples said tohim, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say,‘Who touched me?’” He looked all around to see who had doneit. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came infear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him thewhole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made youwell; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.” While he wasstill speaking, some people came from the leader’s house to say,“Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the teacher any further?”But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the leader of thesynagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” He allowed no one tofollow him except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.When they came to the house of the leader of the synagogue, hesaw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. When hehad entered, he said to them, “Why do you make a commotionand weep? The child is not dead but sleeping.” And theylaughed at him. Then he put them all outside, and took thechild’s father and mother and those who were with him, andwent in where the child was. He took her by the hand and saidto her, “Talitha cum,” which means, “Little girl, get up!” And
  7. 7. immediately the girl got up and began to walk about (she wastwelve years of age). At this they were overcome withamazement. He strictly ordered them that no one should knowthis, and told them to give her something to eat.The Gospel of Christ.
