The Word of God Collect for the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost
Grant us, Lord, not to be anxious about earthly things, but to love things heavenly; and even now, while we are placed among things that are passing away, to hold fast to those that shall endure; 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:
• all be seated
A capable wife who can ﬁnd? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life. She seeks wool and ﬂax, and works with willing hands. She is like the ships of the merchant, she brings her food from far away. She rises while it is still night and provides food for her household and tasks for her servant girls. She considers a ﬁeld and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength, and makes her arms strong. She perceives that her merchandise is proﬁtable. Her lamp does not go out at night. She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle. She opens her hand to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy. She is not afraid for her household when it snows, for all her household are clothed in crimson. She makes herself coverings; her clothing is ﬁne linen and purple. Her husband is known in the city gates, taking his seat among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them; she supplies the merchant with sashes. Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue. She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her happy; her husband too, and he praises her:
“Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. Give her a share in the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the city gates. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Psalm 1 • sung by all — bold type indicates change of chord
4 5 6
Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of the wicked, * nor lingered in the way of sinners, nor sat in the seats of the scornful! Their delight is in the law of the LORD, * and they meditate on his law day and night.
They are like trees planted by streams of water, bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither; * everything they do shall prosper. It is not so with the wicked; * they are like chaff which the wind blows a-way.
Therefore the wicked shall not stand upright when judgment comes, * nor the sinner in the council of the righteous. For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, * but the way of the wicked is doomed.
James 3:13-4:3, 7-8a
Who is wise and understanding among you? Show by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and selﬁsh ambition in your hearts, do not be boastful and false to the truth. Such wisdom does not come down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. For where there is envy and selﬁsh ambition, there will also be disorder and wickedness of every kind. But the wisdom from above is ﬁrst pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
sung by cantor, then all
those who make peace. Those conﬂicts and disputes among you, where do they come from? Do they not come from your cravings that are at war within you? You want something and do not have it; so you commit murder. And you covet something and cannot obtain it; so you engage in disputes and conﬂicts. You do not have, because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, in order to spend what you get on your pleasures. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will ﬂee from you. Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.
The Holy Gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ, acording to Mark.
Glory to you Lord Christ
Jesus and his disciples went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know it; for he was teaching his disciples, saying to them, “The Son of Man is to be betrayed into human hands, and they will kill him, and three days after being killed, he will rise again.” But they did not understand what he was saying and were afraid to ask him. Then they came to Capernaum; and when he was in the house he asked them, “What were you arguing
about on the way?” But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another who was the greatest. He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “Whoever wants to be ﬁrst must be last of all and servant of all.” Then he took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.”
The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Christ.

Prayer after Communion Almighty and everliving God, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious Body and Blood of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of your Son, and heirs of your eternal kingdom. And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord. To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.

Cathedral Matters Christ Church Cathedral, Louisville, KY
September 20, 2015
A church in the heart of the city with a heart for the c ity For more on these and other Cathedral Matters go to . . . www.christchurchlouky.org Weekly E-Notes facebook.com/ChristChurchLouKY • Twitter.com/ChristChurchLou My dear people of Christ Church Cathedral and our guests
. . . . .from the Dean
Canon Bozeman and I have good news for you. Jack and Patti Dunn of Jackson, New Hampshire graciously offered their pipe organ to the Cathedral, and your Chapter has gratefully accepted the gift. The Dunns found us through Hal Gober, the builder of our current instrument.
Built by Darron Wissinger in 2005 for the Dunn’s residence, our new organ is 14-stops, (twice the size of our current organ) with a larger and more diverse palette of color. This will greatly enhance our congregational singing, choral accompaniment, and solo organ repertoire. We give thanks for the generosity of the Dunns and a private donor who is covering the expenses of the move and installation.
You are all invited to come welcome the organ and participate in the unloading, currently scheduled for Saturday, October 17. We will make updates close to that date on how you can help. Read more about the organ and see pictures on the Cathedral website under music/instruments. Today is the last Sunday for this experimental space in the Nave. Next Sunday it will be very different—but mainly because the Cathedral will host a major inter-faith anti-gun violence event on Saturday. Read more about Sowing Seeds of Non-Violence on page 4.
And read more about why we have been moving things around lately—on page 2. Note that it is a work in progress. Thank you for your comments. Please continue to let us know what you think as we experiment with this and other settings—call, write, or tell me in person. And watch this space: I’ll keep you informed of our work and let you know our reasoning.
St. George’s has 2 events coming up soon that could use our participation. The annual Breakfast is Wednesday, September 30 at 7:30 am. Consider purchasing a ticket and joining us. Also, St. George’s holds its Halloween Party Friday, October 30. We will be collecting candy for their trick-or-treating— there will be a box by the ofﬁce for your donations between now and Sunday, October 25. Today, our readings continue to reﬂect upon the idea that life with and in Christ was not what the disciples had in mind. On one hand it was harder—but on the other, it was far richer and meaningful. As you prepare for worship today, consider these words of Gerald Boyer: When we are given our rewards, I would prefer to have erred on the side of grace rather than judgment; to have loved too much rather than too little; to have forgiven the undeserving rather than refused forgiveness to that one who deserved it.
I am glad that you are here today.

Canon Robert in concert today at Highland Presbyterian
Join Canon Robert in concert this afternoon, 3 p.m., at Highland Presbyterian Church, 1011 Cherokee Road. He will play an organ concert with selections for the seasons of the year. The concert concludes with settings of beloved Gospel hymns joined by violinist Jane Halliday and vocalist Faith Aeilts. Come support our Cathedral musicians in concert in our community. Admission is free and a reception will follow.
Experimenting in the Nave
Bishop White has asked us to use our Nave to place more focus on the altar and the sacrament of Holy Eucharist. That makes sense to your staff, and we are working with him. Bringing the altar closer to the congregation and gathering congregational chairs and clergy seating around it might help—the altar already appears to be more central to our work. The chairs are behind the altar to give us an idea of how it would work to place the Bishop’s cathedra there in the future (my seat will be on the side as it has been before—we have moved it now simply to give servers a chance to see how they would work with chairs on the platform). The screen that we have placed behind those chairs is a ﬁrst ‘home-made’ effort toward ﬁnding workable screening between chancel and choir space—this is another effort to direct attention at all times to Holy Communion. This is all a work in progress. You have been very helpful to us in your comments. Please continue to let us know what you think as we experiment with this and other settings—call, write, or tell me in person. And watch this space: I’ll keep you informed of our work and let you know the reasoning.
Dean’s Forum follows 10 a.m. worship
Everyone is invited, even if you don’t have a Be sure to thank your Evening Prayer Ofﬁciants: book. If you need a book, speak with Tom Peters.

Blessing Our Animals and All Creation on October 4
Bring your pets (or any non-human living thing that reminds you of God’s creation) to church on Sunday, October 4: cats, dogs, potted plants...even a photograph of your animal companion. We will thank God for all of creation. If your animal companion is comfortable in crowds, consider bringing him/her, suitably leashed or contained, to the 10:30 a.m. service in the Nave. That’s right - in the church. Your animal may remain with you in the church for the duration of the service, or leave immediately after the Blessing at the beginning of the service. You may also bring more timid animals to the 1 p.m. blessing in the garden.

Every Tuesday, 5:15 p.m. in Bishops’ Hall
Sowing a Non-Violent City Conference, September 26, 2015 The National Riﬂe Association convention is coming to Louisville this year. In response to a heightened awareness of the need for alternative ways to curb gun violence, the Cathedral will host a series of speakers and workshops called Sowing a Non-Violent City Conference, Saturday, September 26, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Registration is $20 with online registration available at sowinganonviolentcity.eventbrite.com. Full information about the conference can be found at sowersofjusticenetwork.org. Participants will include Highland Baptist Church’s Joe Phelps in dialogue with Dr. Kevin Cosby of St. Stephen’s Baptist Church, about ways communities of faith can provide leadership and healing with this issue. Breakout sessions will offer dialogue and direct action from other community leaders including Louisville Police Chief Conrad, and various other faith leaders and activists. In addition, volunteers are needed to help out during this important conference and your help is vital. Contact Dean Pritcher for more information.
Laundry Love is a practical and graceful ministry the Cathedral is joining along with other downtown parishes.

You can help by contributing to the Dean’s Discretionary Fund, and by putting coins and bills in the DEO Piggy Bank.
Rebuild the Churches Fund
In June, we were shocked by the torching of four predominantly black churches. You can help them recover by contributing to Rebuild the Churches Fund, a special fundraising effort established by our sister, Christ Church Cathedral in St. Louis. All money received will be divided equally among these congregations: Glover Grove Baptist Church, Warrenville, S.C.; College Hill Seventh Day Adventist Church, Knoxville, Tenn.; Briar Creek Baptist Church, Charlotte, N.C.; God’s Power Church of Christ, Macon, Ga.

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!
