  3. 3. “Go, do all that you have in mind; for the Lord iswith you.” 4But that same night the word of the Lordcame to Nathan: 5Go and tell my servant David: Thussays the Lord: Are you the one to build me a houseto live in? 6I have not lived in a house since the day Ibrought up the people of Israel from Egypt to thisday, but I have been moving about in a tent and atabernacle. 7Wherever I have moved about among allthe people of Israel, did I ever speak a word with anyof the tribal leaders of Israel, whom I commanded toshepherd my people Israel, saying, “Why have younot built me a house of cedar?” 8Now therefore thusyou shall say to my servant David: Thus says theLord of hosts: I took you from the pasture, fromfollowing the sheep to be prince over my peopleIsrael; 9and I have been with you wherever you went,and have cut off all your enemies from before you;and I will make for you a great name, like the nameof the great ones of the earth. 10And I will appoint aplace for my people Israel and will plant them, sothat they may live in their own place, and bedisturbed no more; and evildoers shall afflict themno more, as formerly, 11from the time that Iappointed judges over my people Israel; and I willgive you rest from all your enemies. Moreover theLord declares to you that the Lord will make you ahouse. 12When your days are fulfilled and you liedown with your ancestors, I will raise up youroffspring after you, who shall come forth from yourbody, and I will establish his kingdom. 13He shallbuild a house for my name, and I will establish thethrone of his kingdom forever. 14I will be a father tohim, and he shall be a son to me.
  4. 4. Hear what the Spirit is saying to God’s People:Thanks be to God.PSALM 89: 20-37 (said together)20I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him.21My hand will hold him fast and my arm will make him strong.22No enemy shall deceive him, nor any wicked man bring him down.23I will crush his foes before him and strike down those who hate him.24My faithfulness and love shall be with him, and he shall be victorious through my name.25I shall make his dominion extend from the Great Sea to the River.26He will say to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.’27I will make him my firstborn and higher than the kings of the earth. 28I will keep my love for him for ever, and my covenant will stand firm for him.29I will establish his line for ever and his throne as the days of heaven.30If his children forsake my law and do not walk according to my judgements;31If they break my statutes and do not keep my commandments;32I will punish their transgressions with a rod and their iniquities with the lash;33But I will not take my love from him, nor let my faithfulness prove false.
  5. 5. 34I will not break my covenant, nor change what has gone out of my lips.35Once for all I have sworn by my holiness: ‘I will not lie to David. 36His line shall endure for ever and his throne as the sun before me;37It shall stand fast for evermore like the moon, the abiding witness in the sky.’”Glory be to the Father, and to the Sonand to the Holy Ghost;As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.A READING FROM THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THE EPHESIANS 2:11-22 read by Esma Brathwaite11Remember that at one time you Gentiles by birth,called “the uncircumcision” by those who are called“the circumcision”—a physical circumcision made inthe flesh by human hands—12remember that youwere at that time without Christ, being aliens fromthe commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to thecovenants of promise, having no hope and withoutGod in the world. 13But now in Christ Jesus you whoonce were far off have been brought near by theblood of Christ. 14For he is our peace; in his flesh hehas made both groups into one and has brokendown the dividing wall, that is, the hostility betweenus. 15He has abolished the law with itscommandments and ordinances, that he mightcreate in himself one new humanity in place of thetwo, thus making peace, 16and might reconcile bothgroups to God in one body through the cross, thus
  6. 6. putting to death that hostility through it. 17So hecame and proclaimed peace to you who were far offand peace to those who were near; 18for through himboth of us have access in one Spirit to the Father.19So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, butyou are citizens with the saints and also members ofthe household of God, 20built upon the foundation ofthe apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himselfas the cornerstone. 21In him the whole structure isjoined together and grows into a holy temple in theLord; 22in whom you also are built togetherspiritually into a dwelling place for God.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 6: 30-34, 53-56.Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.30The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told himall that they had done and taught. 31He said to them,“Come away to a deserted place all by yourselvesand rest a while.” For many were coming and going,and they had no leisure even to eat. 32And they wentaway in the boat to a deserted place by themselves.33Now many saw them going and recognized them,and they hurried there on foot from all the townsandarrived ahead of them. 34As he went ashore, he sawa great crowd; and he had compassion for them,because they were like sheep without a shepherd;
  7. 7. and he began to teach them many things. 53Whenthey had crossed over, they came to land atGennesaret and moored the boat. 54When they gotout of the boat, people at once recognized him,55and rushed about that whole region and began tobring the sick on mats to wherever they heard hewas. 56And wherever he went, into villages or citiesor farms, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, andbegged him that they might touch even the fringe ofhis cloak; and all who touched it were healed.The Gospel of Christ. Praise be to thee, O Christ.HomilyAffirmation of Faith – The Apostles’ Creed p. 189Prayers of the People led by Rhonda BoyceConfession & Absolution p. 191Sharing Christ’s PeaceWe Offer Our Gifts to GodOffertory Hymn 59 “Jesus calls us here to meet him” (Jesuscalls us)Prayer over the Gifts: O God, accept our praise andthanksgiving.

If you will not be receiving bread and wine, we would be pleased if you would join us at the Lord’s Table for a blessing.”Prayer after Communion: O God, as we arestrengthened in these holy mysteries, may ourlives be a continual offering, holy and acceptablein your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord.Amen.Sharing God’s Love in the WorldDoxology p. 214AnnouncementsFinal Hymn 592 “Where cross the crowded ways of life”(Walton)DismissalOrgan Postlude Prelude on ‘Hyfrydol - Healey WillanWe welcome all who are new or visiting today.
