THE COLLECT Almighty and everlasting God, whose will it is to restore all things in your well-beloved Son, the King of kings and Lord of lords: Mercifully grant that the peoples of the earth, divided and 
 enslaved by sin, may be freed and brought together under His most gracious rule; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.


THE FIRST READING: A Reading from the Word of God written in the Book of Jeremiah Chapter 23 beginning at the 1st verse. "Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!" says the LORD. Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my people: "You have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the LORD. Then I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. I will set shepherds over them who will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing, says the LORD. "Behold, the days are coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In his days Judah


 will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely. And this is the name by which he will be called: `The LORD is our righteousness.' Reader: ALL:


Here ends the Reading. Thanks be to God.

PSALM 46 Deus noster refugium. 1.God is our refuge and strength,* a very present help in trouble. 2.Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, * and though the mountains be toppled into the depths of the sea; 3.Though its waters rage and foam, * and though the mountains tremble at its tumult. 4.The Lord of hosts is with us;* the God of Jacob is our stronghold. 5.There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, * the holy habitation of the Most High. 6.God is in the midst of her; she shall not be overthrown; * God shall help her at the break of day. 7.The nations make much ado, and the kingdoms are shaken; * God has spoken, and the earth shall melt away. 8.The Lord of hosts is with us;* the God of Jacob is our stronghold. 9.Come now and look upon the works of the Lord, * what awesome things he has done on earth.

! 10.It is he who makes war to cease in all the world* he


 breaks the bow, and shatters the spear, and burns the shields with fire. 11."Be still, then, and know that I am God;* I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth." 12.The Lord of hosts is with us;* the God of Jacob is our stronghold.


Glory to the Father, and to the Son;*and to the Holy Spirit; As it was in the beginning is now:*and shall be forever. Amen


THE EPISTLE A Reading from the Word of God written in the Letter to the Colossians Chapter 1 beginning at the 11th verse.

!May you be strengthened with all power, according to his

glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the dominion of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities -- all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that in everything he might be pre-eminent. For in him all the fulness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

THE HOLY GOSPEL Gospeller: The Lord be with you All: And also with you Gospeller: A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Luke Glory to Christ our Saviour.


At that time the people stood by, watching; but the rulers

scoffed at him, saying, "He saved others; let him save himself, if he is the Christ of God, his Chosen One!" The soldiers also mocked him, coming up and offering him vinegar, and saying, "If you are the King of the Jews, save yourself!" There was also an inscription over him, "This is the King of the Jews." One of the criminals who were hanged railed at him, saying, "Are you not the Christ? Save yourself and us!" But the other rebuked him, saying, "Do you not fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? And we indeed justly; for we are receiving the due reward of our deeds; but this man has done nothing wrong." And he said, "Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom." And he said to him, "Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in Paradise."

Gospeller: The Gospel of Christ. ALL: Praise to Christ our Lord.

From the Rector’s Notebook Greetings: We have come to the final Sunday after the Feast of Pentecost. It is also the last Sunday of the Church’s year and is observed as the Feast of Christ the King.


The observance of the Liturgical Year presents a fascinating way of looking at time.


As Christians we are not just saying that we move from one day to another; but rather within the


 movement of time we have observed the presence of God almighty having dominion over our lives.


It is within the context of time that we celebrate the Eucharist with the understanding that we keep the Paschal Mystery ever before our eyes as being ever present.


As Professor Kevin Irwin puts it, the Paschal Mystery is not simply an observance of past events, but that our Lord, crucified, resurrected and ascended is ever with us and that the coming of the Holy Spirit keeps all of this in our remembrance.


In the Paschal Mystery we make the point that our Lord reigns. He reigns in Heaven and in earth, that is, within the whole orb of earth and in the depth of the sea.


It is vital for us theologically and spiritually to have our Lord enthroned within our hearts and within our homes.


T h i s m a ke s t h e Fe a s t o f C h r i s t t h e K i n g tremendously important. It is when we acknowledge Christ as Lord and King that we may see a difference in the way in which we respond to him.


Not only that, but also the way in which we relate to each other and to situations in general.


A s w e c e l e b ra t e t h e 4 7 t h a n n i ve r s a r y o f Independence at the end of this week, we must give thanks to our Lord and God who has seen as through many difficult times as we beseem him to give us the spirit of endurance at this time of


economic difficulty. We pray that our Lord be enthroned in all areas of public and private life and especially in our homes.


It is when our Lord is enthroned in our homes that we will see a return of the children of our nation to Sunday School, Children’s Bible Study sessions and those other character building exercises that will help them to value themselves and others.


We say three cheers for Barbados, Our Island Home as we pray that God may truly bless Bim on Independence Day.
