Hymn: TiS 203 1. Fairest Lord Jesus, Lord of all creation, Son of God, and Mary’s son: you will I cherish, you will I honour, you are my soul’s delight and crown.

4. Fair is the moonlight, fairer still the sunshine, fair is the shimmering starry sky: Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines clearer than all the heavenly host on high.

2. Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands robed in the greenness and bloom of spring: Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer, he makes the saddest heart to sing.

5. Jesus, all beauty, heavenly and earthly, in you is wondrously found to be; none can be nearer, fairer or dearer than you, my Saviour, are to me. Anon., Münster 1677 tr. Joseph Augustus Seiss 1823–1904 and others

3. Fair are the flowers, fairer still the children in all the freshness of youth arrayed; yet is their beauty fading and fleeting; Lord Jesus, yours will never fade.


The Lord be with you. AND ALSO WITH YOU.

(see Ruth 2:4)

Sentence: In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and trust shall be your strength. Isaiah 30.16


Prayer of Preparation: As we gather as God's people let us pray together: Almighty God, to whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from whom no secrets are hidden: 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 Summary of the Commandments: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ Jesus said: ‘This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: you shall love your neighbour as yourself.’

Kyrie eleison (Kew Setting)


The Confession Let us confess our sins in penitence and faith, confident in God's forgiveness. Merciful God, our maker and our judge, we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, and in what we have failed to do: we have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbours as ourselves; we repent, and are sorry for all our sins. Father, forgive us. Strengthen us to love and obey you in newness of life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Absolution(Celebrant) Almighty God, who has promised forgiveness to all who turn to him in faith: pardon you and set you free from all your sins, strengthen you in all goodness and keep you in eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Prayer of the Day Eternal God, you draw near to us in Christ and make yourself our guest: amid the cares of our daily lives, make us attentive to your voice and alert to your presence, that we may treasure your word above all else. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen. 5

THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD Readings from 'New Revised Standard Version' (NRSV) First Reading: Amos 8.1-8 1

This is what the Lord God showed me—a basket of summer fruit. 2 He said, ‘Amos, what do you see?’ And I said, ‘A basket of summer fruit.’ Then the Lord said to me, ‘The end has come upon my people Israel; I will never again pass them by. 3 The songs of the temple shall become wailings on that day,’ says the Lord God; ‘the dead bodies shall be many, cast out in every place. Be silent!’ 4 Hear this, you that trample on the needy, and bring to ruin the poor of the land, 5 saying, ‘When will the new moon be over so that we may sell grain; and the Sabbath, so that we may offer wheat for sale? We will make the ephah small and the shekel great, and practise deceit with false balances, 6 buying the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, and selling the sweepings of the wheat.’ 7 The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob: Surely I will never forget any of their deeds. 8 Shall not the land tremble on this account, and everyone mourn who lives in it, and all of it rise like the Nile, and be tossed about and sink again, like the Nile of Egypt?

Response: Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Psalm: 52:1-8 1

Why, you that are powerful, do you boast all the day long: of mischief done to those that are faithful to God? 2 You contrive destroying slanders: your tongue is like a sharpened razor, it cuts deceitfully. 3 You have loved evil, and not good: to tell lies, rather than to speak the truth. 4 You love all words that may do hurt: and every deceit of the tongue. 5 But God will destroy you utterly: he will snatch you away and pluck you out of your dwelling, he will uproot you from the land of the living. 6 The righteous shall see it, and fear: they shall laugh you to scorn, and say, 7 ‘Here is one who did not take God for strength: but trusted to the abundance of riches, and found strength in slander.’ 8 As for me, I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I will trust in the goodness of God for ever and ever.


Second Reading: Colossians 1.15-23 15

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; 16 for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him. 17 He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him God was pleased to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, by making peace through the blood of his cross. 21 And you who were once estranged and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 he has now reconciled in his fleshly body through death, so as to present you holy and blameless and irreproachable before him— 23 provided that you continue securely established and steadfast in the faith, without shifting from the hope promised by the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven. I, Paul, became a servant of this gospel.

Response:Hear the word of the Lord, THANKS BE TO GOD


Gradual Hymn: TiS 448 1. Blest are the pure in heart, for they shall see our God; the secret of the Lord is theirs, their soul is Christ’s abode. 2. The Lord who left the heavens our life and peace to bring, to dwell with us in lowliness, our pattern and our King: 3. still to the lowly soul he will himself impart, and for his cradle and his throne chooses the pure in heart. 4. Lord, we your presence seek; this blessing now renew: give us a pure and lowly heart, a temple fit for you. John Keble 1792–1866 (vv. 1,3) and others


We stand for the reading of the Holy Gospel as a sign of respect as we greet our Lord who is present in His Holy Word. The Lord be with you AND ALSO WITH YOU The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, according to Saint Luke chapter 10 beginning at the 38th verse. GLORY TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST. 38

Now as they went on their way, he entered a certain village, where a woman named Martha welcomed him into her home. 39 She had a sister named Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to what he was saying. 40 But Martha was distracted by her many tasks; so she came to him and asked, ‘Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her then to help me.’ 41 But the Lord answered her, ‘Martha, Martha, you are worried and distracted by many things; 42 there is need of only one thing. Mary has chosen the better part, which will not be taken away from her.’

Gospel Response: This is the gospel of the Lord, PRAISE TO YOU, LORD JESUS CHRIST.

ALLELUIA Sung by Choir & Congregation



(copy of sermon available at back of church)


The Nicene Creed Let us together affirm the faith of the Church. 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, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human. 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, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who 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 Let us pray for all people and for the Church throughout the world. Each petition of intercession or thanksgiving concludes with, Lord in your mercy, HEAR OUR PRAYER.

We pray for the members of Holy Trinity not able to worship with us, Margaret D, Ronald D, Jean S, Ren C, Nancy K, Hilary, Joyce L, Elisabeth D, Lorna M, Jean D, and all who care for them. We remember before God with thanksgiving the lives of James Farlow (2012), and John Delahunty as we come to the anniversary of their entry into your nearer presence. Almighty God, you have promised to hear our prayers. Grant that what we have asked in faith We may by your grace receive, Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

He lives, to bless me with his love: he lives, to plead for me above; he lives my hungry soul to feed; he lives to help in time of need. 3. He lives, and grants me daily breath; he lives, and I shall conquer death; he lives, my mansion to prepare; he lives, to lead me safely there. 4. He lives, all glory to his name; he lives, my Saviour, still the same; what joy the blest assurance gives, I know that my Redeemer lives! Samuel Medley 1738–99
