Christ Church Coronado
The Invitation This is the table, not of the church but of Jesus Christ. It is made ready for those who love him And who want to love him more. So come, you who have much faith and you have little; You who have been here often And you who have not been for a long time or ever before; You who have tried to follow and you who have failed; Come, not because the Church invites you; It is Christ, and he invites you to meet him here. The Iona Community

The People and Celebrant say together Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect of the Day The Celebrant offers a prayer based on the theme of the day. Celebrant The Lord be with you. People And also with you. Celebrant Let us pray. O God, because without you we are not able to please you, mercifully grant that your Holy Spirit may in all things direct and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. The Lessons The people sit. A Reading from Isaiah The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of a teacher, that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word.
Morning by morning he wakens-wakens my ear to listen as those who are taught. The Lord GOD has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, I did not turn backward. I gave my back to those who struck me, and my cheeks to those who pulled out the beard; I did not hide my face from insult and spitting. The Lord GOD helps me; therefore I have not been disgraced; therefore I have set my face like flint, and I know that I shall not be put to shame; he who vindicates me is near. Who will contend with me? Let us stand up together. Who are my adversaries? Let them confront me. It is the Lord GOD who helps me; who will declare me guilty? Reader People
The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
Psalm 116:1-8 (The Choir and People sing.) 1
I love the Lord because he heard, Because he listened to my plea; Because when I have called on him He has inclined his ear to me.
The grave held me within its grip The cords of death entangled me; Then sorrow overwhelmed my live And grief was my lot constantly.
I called upon his Name and said, â€œSave me, O Lord, I pray you;â€? Full of compassion is our God; The Lord is gracious, righteous, too.
Conditor alme siderum
The innocent are kept from harm; He helped me when I was brought low; Turn then, my soul, and take your rest; He treats you fairly, as you know.
He keeps my feet from any fall, My eyes from tears, my life from death, And in the presence of the Lord I will walk while I draw my breath.
A Reading from the Letter of James Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers and sisters, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness. For all of us make many mistakes. Anyone who makes no mistakes in speaking is perfect, able to keep the whole body in check with a bridle. If we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we guide their whole bodies. Or look at ships: though they are so large that it takes strong winds to drive them, yet they are guided by a very small rudder wherever the will of the pilot directs. So also the tongue is a small member, yet it boasts of great exploits. How great a forest is set ablaze by a small fire! And the tongue is a fire. The tongue is placed among our members as a world of iniquity; it stains the whole body, sets on fire the cycle of nature, and is itself set on fire by hell. For every species of beast and bird, of reptile and sea creature, can be tamed and has been tamed by the human species, but no one can tame the tongue-- a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With it we bless the Lord and Father, and with it we curse those who are made in the likeness of God. From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this ought not to be so. Does a spring pour forth from the same opening both fresh and brackish water? Can a fig tree, my brothers and sisters, yield olives, or a grapevine figs? No more can salt water yield fresh. James 3:1-12 Reader The Word of the Lord. People Thanks be to God. Hymn 537
Christ for the world
The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark People Glory to you, O Lord. Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi; and on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?" And they answered him, "John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets." He asked them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter answered him, "You are the Messiah." And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him.
Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things." He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels." Mark 8:27-38 The Gospel of the Lord. People Praise to you, Lord Christ The Sermon
The Reverend Anne Bridgers
The Nicene Creed We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
The Prayers of the People The People may stand or kneel. The Leader and People pray responsively. Father, we pray for your holy Catholic Church; Thy will be done; that we all may be one. Remembering especially this parish and Christ Church Day School, grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you; Thy will be done; that your Name may be glorified by all people. We pray for all bishops, priests, and deacons; Thy will be done; that they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments. We pray for all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world; Thy will be done; that there may be justice and peace on the earth. Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake; Thy will be done; that our works may find favor in your sight. Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble; Thy will be done; that they may be delivered from their distress. Give to the departed eternal rest. Thy will be done; let light perpetual shine upon them. We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy; Thy will be done; may we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom. The Celebrant adds a concluding Collect. O Lord our God, accept the fervent prayers of your people; in the multitude of your mercies, look with compassion upon us and all who turn to you for help; for you are gracious, O lover of souls, and to you we give glory, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
Confession of Sin Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor. Minister and People 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 neighbors 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. The Celebrant concludes with an absolution Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen. The Peace The Ministers and People greet one another in the name of the Lord. Celebrant The Peace of the Lord be always with you. People And also with you.

Fairest Lord Jesus, ruler of all nature, O Thou of God and man the Son; Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor, Thou, my soulâ€™s glory, joy, and crown. Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands, robed in the blooming garb of spring. Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, who makes the woeful heart to sing. Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations! Son of God and Son of man! Glory and honor, praise, adoration, now and forevermore be Thine. German composite text, pub.1870, New York

The Holy Communion The Great Thanksgiving Eucharistic Prayer A Book of Common Prayer, p. 361 The Lord be with you. People And also with you. Celebrant Lift up your hearts. People We lift them to the Lord. Celebrant Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. People It is right to give God thanks and praise. It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. For you are the source of light and life, you made us in your image, and called us to new life in Jesus Christ our Lord. Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your name. The Celebrant and People sing
The people may stand or kneel. The Celebrant continues Holy and gracious Father; In your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all. He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself, in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world. At the following words concerning the bread, the Celebrant is to hold it, or lay a hand upon it; and at the words concerning the cup, to hold or place a hand upon the cup and any other vessel containing wine to be consecrated. On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.” After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.” Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith: Celebrant and People Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again. The Celebrant continues We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts. Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom. All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ. By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. AMEN.
And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say, People and Celebrant Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen. The Breaking of the Bread The Celebrant breaks the consecrated Bread. A period of silence is kept. Then is said Celebrant Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us; People Therefore let us keep the feast. Alleluia. The Celebrant says the following Invitation The Gifts of God for the People of God. The ministers receive the Sacrament in both kinds and then immediately deliver it to the people. Please proceed up the center aisle at the ushersâ€™ direction. Standing or kneeling at the altar rail as you choose, the bread may be consumed or intincted (dipped slightly) in the wine. If you prefer to receive a blessing, simply fold your arms across your chest to indicate your intention. Gluten-free wafers are available as needed; please let the clergy at the altar know of your request. Music at Communion Voluntary
Motet O Lord, give the Holy Spirit John Harper O Lord, give thy Holy Spirit into our hearts, and lighten our understanding, that we may know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent. Amen Lidleyâ€™s Prayers, 1566 Hymn 312
Strengthen for service
After Communion, the People stand as the Celebrant says Let us pray In unison Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood. Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen
The Celebrant blesses the people, saying As you go on your way, may God go before you to show you the way, behind you to encourage you, beside you to befriend you, above you to watch over you, and within you to give you peace. Amen. The Dismissal In unison, the congregation prepares to depart with these words. Let us go forth in the name of Christ. Thanks be to God. Voluntary
Simphonie en dialogue: La Brillante
Please join us in the courtyard for refreshments and fellowship Music Notes: Today’s organ selections include some recent discoveries of late sixteenth century composers from England and France. Our anonymous composer from London was likely a highly trained organist in a parish church, much like Claude Balbastre (17241799) in Paris. Balbastre, however, enjoyed a life of renown and appreciation, and died of natural causes at the end of the Reign of Terror. This was quite a feat for the harpsichord teacher of Marie Antoinette. Charles Piroye (c.1668-1672) while not one of the most famous of French Baroque organists, left six Dialogues in Rondo form in a typically flamboyant style more representative of the theatre and the Royal Court than of the church. Our choral offerings today are based on two traditional texts. The composite text, originally in German, represents classic Lutheran Pietistic spirituality. The Collect “O Lord, Give thy Holy Spirit” offers a couple of clues to its purpose. With the reference of light, the text might welcome either the morning or evening; and musically, the piece ends on the fifth level of the scale, rather than the first. This would indicate further collects to be chanted during the Divine Offices. Its source is a prayer book published in Great Britain in English, in 1566. Geoff Graham Parish Prayer List: Today we pray for St. Luke’s, San Diego and for our ecumenical partnerships on the International Day of Prayer for Peace, September 21.
