The Word of God Collect for the Last Sunday after Epiphany O God, who before the passion of your only-begotten Son revealed his glory upon the holy mountain: Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear our cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. • at the conclusion of the collect all sing:

2 Kings 2:1-12
When the Lord was about to take Elijah up to heaven by a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were on their way from Gilgal. Elijah said to Elisha, “Stay here; for the Lord has sent me as far as Bethel.” But Elisha said, “As the Lord lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” So they went down to Bethel. The company of prophets who were in Bethel came out to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that today the Lord will take your master away from you?” And he said, “Yes, I know; keep silent.” Elijah said to him, “Elisha, stay here; for the Lord has sent me to Jericho.” But he said, “As the Lord lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” So they came to Jericho. The company of prophets who were at Jericho drew near to Elisha, and said to him, “Do you know that today the Lord will take your master away from you?” And he answered, “Yes, I know; be silent.” Then Elijah said to him, “Stay here; for the Lord has sent me to the Jordan.” But he said, “As the Lord lives, and as you yourself live, I will not leave you.” So the two of The Word of the Lord.

them went on. Fifty men of the company of prophets also went, and stood at some distance from them, as they both were standing by the Jordan. Then Elijah took his mantle and rolled it up, and struck the water; the water was parted to the one side and to the other, until the two of them crossed on dry ground. When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, “Tell me what I may do for you, before I am taken from you.” Elisha said, “Please let me inherit a double share of your spirit.” He responded, “You have asked a hard thing; yet, if you see me as I am being taken from you, it will be granted you; if not, it will not.” As they continued walking and talking, a chariot of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them, and Elijah ascended in a whirlwind into heaven. Elisha kept watching and crying out, “Father, father! The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!” But when he could no longer see him, he grasped his own clothes and tore them in two pieces.
Psalm 50:1-6 • sung by all
The LORD, the God of gods, has /spoken; * he has called the earth from the rising of the sun /to its setting. Out of Zion, perfect in its /beauty, * God reveals him/self in glory.
Our God will come and will not keep /silence; * before him there is a consuming flame, and round about him/ a raging storm.
He calls the heavens and the earth from a/bove * to witness the judgment /of his people. “Gather before me my loyal/ followers, * those who have made a covenant with me and sealed/ it with sacrifice.”
Let the heavens declare the rightness of his/ cause; * for God /himself is judge.
2 Corinthians 4:3-6
Even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not proclaim ourselves; we
proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and ourselves as your slaves for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The Holy Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ, acording to Mark.
Glory to you Lord Christ
Jesus took with him Peter and James and John, and led them up a high mountain apart, by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no one on earth could bleach them. And there appeared to them Elijah with Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Then Peter said to Jesus, “Rabbi, it is good for us to be here; let us make three dwellings, one for you, one for Moses, and one for The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Christ.

Elijah.” He did not know what to say, for they were terrified. Then a cloud overshadowed them, and from the cloud there came a voice, “This is my Son, the Beloved; listen to him!” Suddenly when they looked around, they saw no one with them any more, but only Jesus. As they were coming down the mountain, he ordered them to tell no one about what they had seen, until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead.

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.

The Great Thanksgiving Eucharistic Prayer B • BCP 367 celebrant celebrant
It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and every where to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth. Because in the mystery of the Word made flesh, you have caused a new light to shine in our hearts, to give the knowledge of your glory in the face of your Son 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: from Missa Conditor Alme Siderum
We give thanks to you, O God, for the goodness and love which you have made known to us in creation; in the calling of Israel to be your people; in your Word spoken through the prophets; and above all in the Word made flesh, Jesus, your Son. For in these last days you sent him to be incarnate from the Virgin Mary, to be the Savior and Redeemer of the world. In him, you have delivered us from evil, and made us worthy to stand before you. In him, you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life.
On the night before he died for us, 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, according to his command, O Father,
We remember his death, We proclaim his resurrection, We await his coming in glory;
And we offer our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to you, O Lord of all; presenting to you, from your creation, this bread and this wine.
We pray you, gracious God, to send your Holy Spirit upon these gifts that they may be the Sacrament of the Body of Christ and his Blood of the new Covenant. Unite us to your Son in his sacrifice, that we may be acceptable through him, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit. In the fullness of time, put all things in subjection under your Christ, and bring us to that heavenly country where, with [_________. and] all your saints, we may enter the everlasting heritage of your sons and daughters; through Jesus Christ our Lord, the firstborn of all creation, the head of the Church, and the author of our salvation. 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.

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.

Christ Church Episcopal Cathedral February 11, 2018 www.christchurchlouky.org
My dear people of Christ Church Cathedral and our guests, I am away today, but you are in good hands. Fr. William Bippus is preaching and Fr. Edgar Wallace is presiding. I am grateful for their service to us.
Pastoral Care is also in good hands. The Rev’d Deacon Eva Markham is in touch with those we know—but she will also be there if you let her know of your need. Call 502-262-1457 and she will respond. Make sure you join us this week for the Shrove Tuesday Chili Cook-Off, February 13, 6:30 (read more on page 5) and either of two Ash Wednesday Liturgies, February 14, at Noon or 7:00 pm, in the Nave. I invite you also to join us in a ‘big read’. During Lent, consider reading Lent for Everyone, Year B, written by N. T. Wright. I’ll be referencing it in sermons, Cathedral Matters and social media. Follow along for yourself—here is the link for the book: https://www.amazon.com/LentEveryone-Mark-Year-Devotional/dp/0664238947/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8 &qid=1517096015&sr=1-3 As you prepare for worship, consider these words of Walter Wink: Transfiguration is living by vision: standing foursquare in the midst of a broken, tortured, oppressed, starving, dehumanizing reality, yet seeing the invisible, calling it to come, behaving as if it is on the way, sustained by elements of it that have come already, within and among. In those moments when people are healed, transformed, freed from addictions, obsessions, destructiveness, self worship, or when groups or communities or even rarely, nations glimpse the light of the transcendent in their midst, there the New Creation has come upon us. The world for one brief moment is transfigured. The beyond shines in our midst—on the way to the cross. I am glad that you are worshiping at the Cathedral today. Faithfully, The Very Reverend Joan Pritcher Your Dean in the Interim On this Last Sunday After the Epiphany

Adult Bible Study
Every Sunday, 9:15 a.m. in the library Tom Peters leads a group in reading and studying through the Bible. The group is working its way through the Acts of the Apostles. You are invited to join the group at any time.
Dean’s Forum returns next Sunday, February 11, at 12:15 in the Library. In the feature documentary Traces of the Trade, Producer/Director Katrina Browne tells the story of her forefathers, the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. Given the myth that the South is solely responsible for slavery, viewers will be surprised to learn that Browne’s ancestors were Northerners. The film follows Browne and nine fellow family members on a remarkable journey which brings them face-to-face with the history and legacy of New England’s hidden enterprise. Dean’s Forum will view the documentary as well as the film ‘outtakes’ for a broader view of Katrina Browne’s story.
Children’s Sunday School
Children’s Sunday School meets at 9:45 in Dean’s Hall. Today, we have Art Day with Art Specialist Stephanie Potter. Children’s Sunday School uses a clergy, chapter, parent and parishioner-led Montessori-based curriculum.

February 18, the Cathedral’s CLOUT Network members will gather to be updated on the issues and to prepare to invite others to attend the Nehemiah Action. The Cathedral’s goal is to have 70 people in attendance at the Nehemiah Action, our own 30 Network members plus their guests. Want to know more?

We all enjoy coffee hour after the morning service on Sundays. Currently we have 31 gracious generous hosts who serve about 3 coffee hours during the year. We always welcome new hosts and I will be updating our list and schedule to begin in January. We try to keep the offerings simple so that it is not too much of a burden on a host. There is help (usually our wonderful Frazier Marsh) cleaning up and coffee is already taken care of. If you feel called to host coffee hour, please contact Randy Peters.
If you have a pastoral care emergency or concern, call Dean Pritcher any time on the Pastoral Care line: 502-632-3213. In addition, when there are pastoral concerns about members of our congregation, and with the concurrence of the person or people concerned, Randy Peters sends an e-mail to a list of people who have indicated that they want to know about these concerns. If you want to be included in that distribution list, please let Randy know, either in person or by e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have you ever gone to a church for the first time and no one spoke to you as you entered? That is a Greeter’s role of outreach--to make a person feel welcome as they enter a church for the first time. It requires only about 15-20 minutes each time you greet and it is beneficial to the greeter as much as the one greeted. If you would like to help with this important service to the church, please contact the Dean or Bobbie Fritton.

Want to do something different on Valentine’s Day? Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is sponsoring an Advocacy Day at the capital in Frankfort on the morning of February 14th. Join us in our efforts to reduce gun violence by working to keep dangerous gun bills , such as “permitless carry” and guns on college campuses and K -12 schools, from becoming law. If you would like to join Mom’s, wear red to stand with us in the rotunda from 10:30 a.m. -11:30 a.m. and our voices will be seen and heard. We will also be attending a committee meeting and individual meetings with our legislators. Questions and more information – contact Jane Halliday JGHalliday@aol.com

Why do we pray, study, work, listen and build?
Benedict, the father of Benedictine spirituality, suggested that our life is best balanced between prayer, study, and work. We have taken that challenge as the basis of our common life together at Christ Church Cathedral: We pray (worship and the arts). We study (spiritual formation). We work (service to others). In addition, we know that we are sustained by our life together, and that works best when we listen to one another. We also aim to build and maintain a structure that will support all of our ministry efforts. And so: We listen (cathedral life and fellowship), We build (administration). In Cathedral Matters, you will find information about ministry opportunities at the Cathedral which fit into all five of these areas. Under each of the five main categories you will see what is new to the listing for this week. You will notice that some paragraphs repeat weekly, so that our guests won’t miss any news. You are urged to take your Cathedral Matters home with you so that you will have it for ready reference. Now, read about our ministry, think about how you would like to be involved...and jump right in!
