Amen. Ash Wednesday (Page 163 BCP) Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent: Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. REFLECTION FIRST LESSON: In our opening reading the prophet had a vision of the bones of a dead and hopeless people being restored to new life in their homeland. 1st LESSON: 7:30a.m. - Melissa Stevenson

9:15a.m. - Peter Bowen

FIRST LESSON: (OLD TESTAMENT): Ezekiel 37:1-3(4-10)11-14 The hand of the Lord was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley; it was full of bones. And he led me round among them; and behold, there were very many upon the valley; and lo, they were very dry. And he said to me, "Son of man, can these bones live?" And I answered, "O Lord God, thou knowest." [Again he said to me, "Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord. Thus says the Lord God to these bones: Behold, I will cause breath to enter you, and you shall live. And I will lay sinews upon you, and will cause flesh to come upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and you shall live; and you shall know that I am the Lord." So I prophesied as I was commanded; and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold, a rattling; and the bones came together, bone to its bone. And as I looked, there were sinews on them, and flesh had come upon them, and skin had covered them; but there was no breath in them. Then he said to me, "Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, Thus says the Lord God: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live." So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great host.] Then he said to me, "Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. Behold, they say, `Our bones are dried up, and our hope is lost; we are clean cut off.' Therefore prophesy, and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Behold, I will open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people; and I will bring you home into the land of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord, when I open your graves, and raise you from your graves, O my people. And I


will put my Spirit within you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land; then you shall know that I, the Lord, have spoken, and I have done it, says the Lord." REFLECTION THE PSALM: The psalmist calls to the merciful Lord and waits upon God for forgiveness and redemption. PSALM: 130: (7:30a.m. - page 646 BCP) 1. OUT of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord : Lord, hear my voice. 2. O let thine ears consider well : the voice of my complaint. 3. If thou, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss : O Lord, who may abide it? 4. For there is mercy with thee : therefore shalt thou be feared. 5. I look for the Lord; my soul doth wait for him : in his word is my trust. 6. My soul fleeth unto the Lord : before the morning watch, I say, before the morning watch. 7. O Israel, trust in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy : and with him is plenteous redemption. 8. And he shall redeem Israel : from all his sins. REFLECTION SECOND LESSON: This lesson teaches that by the grace of God Christians are no longer slaves to sin but are obedient to the service of righteousness. 2nd LESSON: 7:30a.m. - Vincent Broomes

9:15a.m. - Men’s Fellowship

SECOND LESSON (EPISTLE): Romans 6:16-23 Do you not know that if you yield yourselves to any one as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness? But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once yielded your members to impurity and to greater and greater iniquity, so now yield your members to righteousness for sanctification. When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But then what return did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? The end of those things is death. But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the return you get is sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. REFLECTION THE GOSPEL: The Gospel is the story of Jesus’ raising of Lazarus from the dead. This is the last and greatest of Jesus’ signs, and it points beyond itself to the hope of new life after death for all. Only slowly do Jesus’ friends begin to understand what he is saying to them and the deeper meaning of their own words. Soon the one who has raised Lazarus will himself be put to death, and then become the way of resurrection to eternal life. GRADUAL HYMN - 497 THE GOSPEL: John 11:(1-17)18-44 [Now a certain man was ill, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha. It was Mary who anointed the Lord with ointment and wiped his feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was ill. So the sisters sent to him, saying, "Lord, he whom you love is ill." But when Jesus heard it he said, "This illness is not unto death; it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by means of it." Now Jesus

3


loved Martha and her sister and Lazarus. So when he heard that he was ill, he stayed two days longer in the place where he was. Then after this he said to the disciples, "Let us go into Judea again." The disciples said to him, "Rabbi, the Jews were but now seeking to stone you, and are you going there again?" Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any one walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if any one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him." Thus he spoke, and then he said to them, "Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but I go to awake him out of sleep." The disciples said to him, "Lord, if he has fallen asleep, he will recover." Now Jesus had spoken of his death, but they thought that he meant taking rest in sleep. Then Jesus told them plainly, "Lazarus is dead; and for your sake I am glad that I was not there, so that you may believe. But let us go to him." Thomas, called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, "Let us also go, that we may die with him." Now when Jesus came, he found that Lazarus had already been in the tomb four days.] Bethany was near Jerusalem, about two miles off, and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. When Martha heard that Jesus was coming, she went and met him, while Mary sat in the house. Martha said to Jesus, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died. And even now I know that whatever you ask from God, God will give you." Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." Martha said to him, "I know that he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live, and whoever lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?" She said to him, "Yes, Lord; I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, he who is coming into the world." When she had said this, she went and called her sister Mary, saying quietly, "The Teacher is here and is calling for you." And when she heard it, she rose quickly and went to him. Now Jesus had not yet come to the village, but was still in the place where Martha had met him. When the Jews who were with her in the house, consoling her, saw Mary rise quickly and go out, they followed her, supposing that she was going to the tomb to weep there. Then Mary, when she came where Jesus was and saw him, fell at his feet, saying to him, "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died." When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled; and he said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to him, "Lord, come and see." Jesus wept. So the Jews said, "See how he loved him!" But some of them said, "Could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying?" Then Jesus, deeply moved again, came to the tomb; it was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said, "Take away the stone." Martha, the sister of the dead man, said to him, "Lord, by this time there will be an odor, for he has been dead four days." Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?" So they took away the stone. And Jesus lifted up his eyes and said, "Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. I knew that thou hearest me always, but I have said this on account of the people standing by, that they may believe that thou didst send me." When he had said this, he cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come out." The dead man came out, his hands and feet bound with bandages, and his face wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Unbind him, and let him go." THE SERMON THE NICENE CREED - Page 104 Bidding Prayer Let us pray to God whose word is the word of life. As Thomas and the other disciples followed their Lord in faith, give to your people the

trust in him that takes away all fear…As Mary and Martha saw with their human eyes his power of resurrection, let your Church witness to his risen presence among us. Have mercy on a world where many do not follow the way of life but choose the dark way that leads to the death of hope…May those in high places know that their power is limited and that all authority comes only from the Lord of life, the conqueror of death. Bless our families, friends and neighbours when they are in distress and doubt…Keep us faithful to one another and to our Lord…Help us to trust in his word and to obey his commands even when the way forward is not clear to us. Look with pity on those who mourn, especially those who feel no hope of resurrection… Strengthen all who walk in fear but are loyal to their calling…Deal tenderly with those who are at the point of death, and ease their passing. God, in whom the dead are alive and shall never die again, receive the souls of the faithful departed…As their bodies lie in the grave, grant them eternal life in Christ, whose word they trusted in their time on earth. We pray in the name of Christ, the Resurrection and the Life. Amen. INTERCESSION:- 7:30a.m. - Peter Rochester
