FIRST LESSON: (OLD TESTAMENT): 1 Kings 17:17-24 The son of the widow of Zarephath, the mistress of the house, became ill; and his illness was so severe that there was no breath left in him. And she said to Elijah, "What have you against me, O man of God? You have come to me to bring my sin to remembrance, and to cause the death of my son!" And he said to her, "Give me your son." And he took him from her bosom, and carried him up into the upper chamber, where he lodged, and laid him upon his own bed. And he cried to the LORD, "O LORD my God, hast thou brought calamity even upon the widow with whom I sojourn, by slaying her son?" Then he stretched himself upon the child three times, and cried to the LORD, "O LORD my God, let this child's soul come into him again." And the LORD hearkened to the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came into him again, and he revived. And Elijah took the child, and brought him down from the upper chamber into the house, and delivered him to his mother; and Elijah said, "See, your son lives." And the woman said to Elijah, "Now I know that you are a man of God, and that the word of the LORD in your mouth is truth."

REFLECTION: THE PSALM A hymn of praise and thanksgiving by one whom the Lord has saved from death. PSALM: 30 (7:30a.m. - page 502) 1. I WILL magnify thee, O Lord, for thou hast set me up : and not made my foes to triumph over me. 2. O Lord my God, I cried unto thee : and thou hast healed me. 3. Thou, Lord, hast brought my soul out of hell : thou hast kept my life from them that go down to the pit. 4. Sing praises unto the Lord, O ye saints of his : and give thanks unto him for a remembrance of his holiness. 5. For his wrath endureth but the twinkling of an eye, and in his pleasure is life : heaviness may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. 6. And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be removed : thou, Lord, of thy goodness hast

made my hill so strong. 7. Thou didst turn thy face from me : and I was troubled. 8. Then cried I unto thee, O Lord : and gat me to my Lord right humbly. 9. What profit is there in my blood : when I go down to the pit? 10. Shall the dust give thanks unto thee : or shall it declare thy truth? 11. Hear, O Lord, and have mercy upon me : Lord, be thou my helper. 12. Thou hast turned my heaviness into joy : thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness. 13. Therefore shall every good man sing of thy praise without ceasing : O my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

SECOND LESSON (EPISTLE): Galatians 1:11-24 I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not man's gospel. For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ. For you have heard of my former life in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God violently and tried to destroy it; and I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my own age among my people, so extremely zealous was I for the traditions of my fathers. But when he who had set me apart before I was born, and had called me through his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son to me, in order that I might preach him among the Gentiles, I did not confer with flesh and blood, nor did I go up to Jerusalem to those who were apostles before me, but I went away into Arabia; and again I returned to Damascus. Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to visit Cephas, and remained with him fifteen days. But I saw none of the other apostles except James the Lord's brother. (In what I am writing to you, before God, I do not lie!) Then I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. And I was still not known by sight to the churches of Christ in Judea; they only heard it said, "He who once persecuted us is now preaching the faith he once tried to destroy." And they glorified God because of me. GRADUAL HYMN - 314
Letter from the Rector Dear Members, Offering Envelopes for 2014 The Church Council has made a decision to use only monthly envelopes from next year. This means that we are discontinuing the weekly envelopes. A number of reasons have resulted in this decision:1. The cost of the envelopes. 2. The cost of bulk postage from the USA. 3. The monthly envelopes will be cheaper to produce and to post. 4. Singwastage praisesofunto Lord, Owith ye saints of them his :left andunused give every thanksyear. unto him for a 4.

REFLECTION THE GOSPEL: Our Gospel is the story of Jesus’ raising to life of the son of the widow of Nain. This narrative would have been told in the early church to emphasize the new authority over death which had been shown forth in Jesus’ own resurrection. It also represents a fulfilment of Old Testament stories and prophecies and is a sign of the beginning of the new age to which the people respond with awe by glorifying God. A special feature of the account is the description of Jesus’ compassion. THE GOSPEL: Luke 7:11-17 Soon afterward Jesus went to a city called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. As he drew near to the gate of the city, behold, a man who had died was being carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow; and a large crowd from the city was with her. And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, "Do not weep." And he came and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still. And he said, "Young man, I say to you, arise." And the dead man sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. Fear seized them all; and they glorified God, saying, "A great 3
prophet has arisen among us!" and "God has visited his people!" And this report concerning him spread through the whole of Judea and all the surrounding country. THE SERMON
