The picture on the front cover is of an icon painted in 1411 (or possibly 1425-27) by the Russian painter Andrei Rublev. The original is currently held in the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. Itâ€™s inspiration was the Biblical story of three angels who visited Abraham and Sarah near the great trees of Mamre. The angels are depicted in equal dignity, and thought to represent the triunity and equality of all three persons of the Holy Trinity.
Batter my heart, three-personed God, for you As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend; That I may rise and stand, o'erthrow me, and bend Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new. I, like an usurped town to another due, Labor to admit you, but oh, to no end; Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend, But is captived, and proves weak or untrue. Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain, But am betrothed unto your enemy; Divorce me, untie or break that knot again, Take me to you, imprison me, for I, Except you enthrall me, never shall be free, Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me. John Donne 1572-1631

The Liturgy of the Word OLD TESTAMENT READING Reader
A reading from the book of Proverbs. Does not wisdom call, and does not understanding raise her voice? On the heights, beside the way, at the crossroads she takes her stand; beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries out: "To you, O people, I call, and my cry is to all that live. The Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long ago. Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth. When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water. Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth when he had not yet made earth and fields, or the world's first bits of soil. When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep, when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth, then I was beside him, like a master worker; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the human race." Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31

The word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
A cantor sings the antiphon first ; all repeat it thereafter.
Out of the mouths of infants and children your majesty is praised above the heavens. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars you have set in their courses, What is man that you should be mindful of him? the son of man that you should seek him out? You have made him but little lower than the angels; you adorn him with glory and honour. Antiphon Psalm 8:2, 4-6
EPISTLE READING Sub-deacon
A reading from the Letter of Paul to the Romans. Since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in our hope of sharing the glory of God. And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. Romans 5:1-5

THE HOLY GOSPEL
All stand and turn to face the book of the Gospels
Jesus said, "I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you." John 16:12-15

CONFESSION & ABSOLUTION Deacon
Let us humbly confess our sins to almighty God. Kneel
Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Maker of all things and judge of all people: We acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness, Which we from time to time most grievously have committed, By thought, word, and deed, Against thy divine majesty. We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings. Have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; For thy Son our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake, Forgive us all that is past; And grant that we may ever hereafter Serve and please thee In newness of life, To the honour and glory of thy name; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty God, our heavenly Father, who of his great mercy hath promised forgiveness of sins to all them that with hearty repentance and true faith turn unto him: have mercy upon you; + pardon and deliver you from all your sins; confirm and strengthen you in all goodness; and bring you to everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The ministers and people may greet one another in the name of the Lord in the customary way. You may choose not to shake hands at the Peace. A simple exchange of “Peace be with you” with eye contact and a nod, or a bow, is a good substitute. HIGH MASS | 13

THE PRAYER OF CONSECRATION
All glory be to thee, O Lord our God, who didst make us in thine own image; and, of thy tender mercy, didst give thine only Son Jesus Christ to take our nature upon him, and to suffer death upon the cross for our redemption. He made there a full and perfect sacrifice for the whole world; and did institute, and in his holy Gospel command us to continue, a perpetual memory of that his precious death and sacrifice, until his coming again; who, in the same night that he was betrayed, took bread; and, when he had given thanks to thee, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take, eat, this is my body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” + Likewise, after supper, he took the cup; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink this, all of you; for this is my blood of the new covenant, which is shed for you and for many, for the remission of sins: Do this, as oft as ye shall drink it, in remembrance of me.” +

And we most humbly beseech thee, O merciful Father, to hear us, and, with thy Word and Holy Spirit, to bless and sanctify these gifts of bread and wine, that they may be unto us the body and blood of thy dearly-beloved Son Jesus Christ. We praise thee, we bless thee, we thank thee and we pray to thee, Lord our God. And we earnestly desire thy fatherly goodness to accept this our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving, whereby we offer and present unto thee, O Lord, ourselves, our souls and bodies. Grant, we beseech thee, that all who partake of this holy communion may worthily receive the most precious body and blood of thy Son Jesus Christ, and be filled with thy grace + and heavenly benediction; and also that we and all thy whole Church may be made one body with him, that he may dwell in us, and we in him; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord; By whom, and with whom, and in whom, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honour and glory be unto thee, O Father Almighty, world without end. Amen.

If so, once you have received the Holy Bread please remain kneeling and fold your arms to indicate that you do not wish to receive from the chalice.
COMMUNION MOTET To deliver us, you became human, and did not disdain the Virgin’s womb. Having blunted the sting of death, you opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers. A light has risen in the darkness for the upright. Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy upon us. Let thy mercy be upon us, O Lord, as we have trusted in thee. In thee, O Lord, have I trusted: let me never be confounded. In te, Domine, speravi — Morten Lauridsen

St. James’ News & Announcements SABBATICAL REVIEW UPDATE Well, feedback comes in many forms. The cartoon below was sent to me by a parishioner who had been part of the interviews last week! How we make disciples, rather how we are nurtured and grow as disciples at St. James’, is at the heart of this season of review and examination. Here’s where we are at with the review process: Much of the groundwork has now happened to update the Parish Profile. However, this needs to be completed and shared with the Parish. I’m exploring with the Parish leadership how an assessment and interpretation can be made of the Parish Profile. This could then be offered to the Parish to facilitate discussion through workshops, forums and interviews as a complement to the servant leadership bodies of the Trustees and Parish Council. After the experience with the test sample of consultation interviews, a second stage may be to interview the Parish leadership in order to further this season of review. If you would like more information please contact the Office for a copy of the proposal for the sabbatical review (we are now entering phase two for those of you who are following closely), or the

If you would like to volunteer in the garden with the Master Gardeners, please leave a message at the office. Join us for some fresh air, exercise, good company, and the opportunity to learn more about gardening. We are also accepting monetary donations to the gardens. Check out the new St. Francis statue in the Chapel Walkway Garden, donated by a St. Luke’s resident. Please tell your friends and neighbours about the compost sale. We’ll have a lot of bags to sell!
