Primary. This is not an academic award but is for the student who best demonstrates commitment to school and community in deportment, attendance and extra-curricular activities. At the All Souls Church an identified person is supported through a three-year scholarship programme and several community families benefit through gifts and grants for academic purposes. In addition to all of this, several of our parishes have regular collections of groceries given or sponsored by members. Hampers are distributed or those in need come to the church and make their own choices. Medical bills are paid and assistance given with utility payments. Of course our churches continue to offer their premises to the wider Barbadian community. Opportunities are offered on our own initiatives and sometimes in partnership with government agencies and non-governmental agencies, for personal enrichment and education. Our facilities are often loaned and sometimes rented at nominal costs for private and public events We have not yet mentioned the Day Care Centres for the young at St. Peter and the elderly at St. Barnabas. Some of our churches, in association with the National Assistance Board, host weekly craft and physical activity classes for senior citizens. Space simply does not permit us to list all of the events and engagements which the Anglican Churches across the island are engaged in. All this in addition to our primary focus of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ crucified. In all the above we are reminded of the words attributed to St. Francis of Assisi; “Preach the Gospel often and when necessary use words.” We in the Anglican Church may not have the answers to all the problems besetting our world and our communities at this time, but we are committed to lighting a candle in the darkness where we are and spreading the message of our Lord and Saviour in Word and in Deed.

787MP Yesterday, today, for ever, Jesus is the same; all may change, but Jesus never, glory to his Name! Glory to his Name! Glory to his Name! All may change, but Jesus never, Glory to his Name!

334 MP In moments like these I sing out a song, I sing out a love-song to Jesus; in moments like these I lift up my hands, I lift up my hands to the Lord: singing, ‘I love You, Lord’, singing, ‘I love You, Lord’, singing, ‘I love You, Lord’, I love You.’


THE COLLECT Proper 17 (Page 177 BCP) Lord of all power and might, the author and giver of all good things: Graft in our hearts the love of your Name; increase in us true religion; nourish us with all goodness; and bring forth in us the fruit of good works; 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: Our opening lesson is a condemnation of human pride, which reminds of human frailty, and instructs that the Lord pulls down the mighty and puts the humble in their place. 1st LESSON: 7:30a.m. - Peter Rochester

COMMUNION HYMNS – 601, 298, 787 MP, 334 MP

9:15a.m. - Denise Boyce-Worrell

FIRST LESSON: (OLD TESTAMENT): Ecclesiasticus 10: (7-11) 12-18 [Arrogance is hateful before the Lord and before men, and injustice is outrageous to both. Sovereignty passes from nation to nation on account of injustice and insolence and wealth. How can he who is dust and ashes be proud? for even in life his bowels decay. A long illness baffles the physician; the king of today will die tomorrow. For when a man is dead, he will inherit creeping things, and wild beasts, and worms]. The beginning of man's pride is to depart from the Lord; his heart has forsaken his Maker. For the beginning of pride is sin, and the man who clings to it pours out abominations. Therefore the Lord brought upon them extraordinary afflictions, and destroyed them utterly. The Lord has cast down the thrones of rulers, and has seated the lowly in their place. The Lord has plucked up the roots of the nations, and has planted the humble in their place. The Lord has overthrown the lands of the nations, and has destroyed them to the foundations of the earth. He has removed some of them and destroyed them, and has extinguished the memory of them from the earth. Pride was not created for men, nor fierce anger for those born of women. REFLECTION THE PSALM: Blessed are those who are right with the Lord, who revere God and are just and generous to those in need PSALM: 112 (7:30a.m. - page 620 BCP) 1. BLESSED is the man that feareth the Lord : he hath great delight in his commandments. 2. His seed shall be mighty upon earth : the generation of the faithful shall be blessed. 3. Riches and plenteousness shall be in his house : and his righteousness endureth for ever. 4. Unto the godly there ariseth up light in the darkness : he is merciful, loving, and righteous.

Dedication Prayer Lord, be with us this day and throughout the week; Within us to purify us; Above us to draw us up; Before us to lead us; Behind us to restrain us; Around us to protect us. Amen. BLESSING RECESSIONAL HYMN - 384 This is a response to an article in Barbados Today about the Anglican Church Most Barbadians know what the Anglican Church has done over the years in the fields of education and social service. Unfortunately, our achievements in more recent times have been a too well kept secret. Perhaps we have followed too closely the Biblical exhortation of not letting our left hand know what our right hand is doing and tacitly agreeing to keep our good works under the cloak of secrecy or even perhaps discretion. I have recently undertaken the task of taking a survey of just a few of the things some of our parishes are doing and thought that I would share these with the wider public for the sake of education and information. From St. Lucy to St. Phillip our parishes and congregations meet the needs of those who live in the surrounding communities and beyond. Their own members and whosoever would ask and can be accommodated. Several of our churches offer daily breakfast feeding programmes, some in association with other churches such as St. Ambrose who hosts over 100 children daily in association with the River Road New Testament Church of God, Bethel Methodist and the St. Patrick Roman Catholic Church. Christ the King and the St. Matthew Churches also offer similar opportunities for those in need. The All Saints Church contributes to the full payment of school meals for the entire school year for eight needy children. Another eight children graduating from the Primary School are given grants to pay for their text books and an identified family in need is granted $600.00 to assist with back-to-school expenses. The St. Matthias Church has established a specified Community Outreach Fund and for the 2013/14 year three deserving students from the Graydon Sealy Secondary School have been given grants in excess of $1,000.00 each. Two youths from the community have received funds to continue their education at the University of the West Indies and the Pommarine Institute. In addition, two young entrepreneurs have been given “start-up” financial assistance. The St. Augustine Church Award is given to a Class 4 student of the Cuthbert Moore 7

The cost is $100.00 Adults $50.00 Children. 6. DVD’s of the Opening Service of Congress 2013 are available at $30.00. It is worth buying a copy and becomes a part of the history of our Church. 7. Sunday School, Youth Church and Bible Study will begin in September. Ordination The Congregation of St. Peter is invited to the Ordination to the Priesthood of Rev. Eleanor Glasgow on Monday 09 September 2013 at 5:00p.m. at St. Patrick Anglican Church, Sauteurs St. Patrick, Grenada.

OFFERTORY HYMNS - 268, 450 MP Souls in danger, look above, 450 MP I was sinking deep in sin, Jesus completely saves; sinking to rise no more, He will lift you by His love overwhelmed by guilt within, out of the angry waves. He’s the Master of the sea, mercy I did implore. Then the Master of the sea billows His will obey; man's pride is to depart has forsaken hisbe,Maker. For the heard my despairing cry, from the Lord; his Heheart your saviour wants to Christ my Saviour lifted me, be saved today! now safe am I. When the waves of sorrow roll, when I am in distress, Love lifted me! Love lifted me! Jesus takes my hand in His, When no-one but Christ could help, ever He loves to bless. love lifted me!

5. A good man is merciful, and lendeth : and will guide his words with discretion. 6. For he shall never be moved : and the righteous shall be had in everlasting remembrance. 7. He will not be afraid of any evil tidings : for his heart standeth fast, and believeth in the Lord. 8. His heart is established, and will not shrink : until he see his desire upon his enemies. 9. He hath dispersed abroad, and given to the poor : and his righteousness remaineth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour. 10. The ungodly shall see it, and it shall grieve him : he shall gnash with his teeth, and consume away; the desire of the ungodly shall perish. REFLECTION SECOND LESSON: In this reading Christians are urged to live moral, hospitable and charitable lives, recalling the faith and example of their leaders, but especially the unchanging Jesus. 2nd LESSON: 7:30a.m. - Janice Turton

9:15a.m. - Men’s Fellowship

SECOND LESSON (EPISTLE): Hebrews 13:1-8 Let brotherly love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them; and those who are ill-treated, since you also are in the body. Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for God will judge the immoral and adulterous. Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, "I will never fail you nor forsake you." Hence we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid; what can man do to me?" Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God; consider the outcome of their life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever. GRADUAL HYMN - 451 REFLECTION THE GOSPEL: In the Gospel Jesus tells a parable about humility and teaches his host that he should invite the poor and infirm to his feasts. Both the parable and the teaching have a still deeper significance. The reign of God is the Lord’s gift which comes to those who do not presume their place in it. By his actions as well as his words Jesus’ ministry shows that the kingdom is open to those whom others consider outcast. People who share in God’s ruling love and justice are to have a transformed attitude towards the poor and needy. THE GOSPEL: Luke 14:1, 17-14 One sabbath when Jesus went to dine at the house of a ruler who belonged to the Pharisees, they were watching him. Now he told a parable to those who were invited, when he marked how they chose the places of honor, saying to them, "When you are invited by any one to a marriage feast, do not sit down in a place of honor, lest a more eminent man than you be invited by him; and he who invited you both will come and say to you, `Give place to this man,' and then you will begin with shame to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when your host comes he may say to you, `Friend, go up higher'; then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at table with you. For every one who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." He said also to the man who had invited him, "When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your kinsmen or rich neighbors, lest they also invite you in return, and you be repaid. But when 3

you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you. You will be repaid at the resurrection of the just." THE SERMON THE NICENE CREED - Page 104 Bidding Prayer In love and concern for all people, let us pray to the Lord. Keep the Church constant in the humility of the service to which she is called…Bless her ministers as they work to spread the good news of salvation to all. Be merciful to the world where many are possessed by pride and made arrogant by power…Grant that those who have authority may exercise it with equal regard for the dignity of all whom they govern. Bless our homes and make them places of welcome…Keep us from becoming narrow in our hospitality, and help us to look beyond those who are nearest to us. We pray for all who are slighted and ignored because of their poverty, their disability or their personal problems…Fill our community with love for the needy and concern for the common good. We pray for the departed who have come to the Kingdom where all are made equal through grace…Help us so to live in this world that we may be worthy at last to receive with them the blessing of eternal life. May our prayers be accepted through Christ, the Lord of the humble and meek. Amen. INTERCESSION:- 7:30a.m. - Vincent Broomes
