Weekly sheet for 8th October, 2017.

St. Leonard’s Church, Malinslee.

Seventeenth Sunday after Trinity, 8th October, 2017.

 

 Collect for Today

 

Almighty God,
you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you:
pour your love into our hearts and draw us to yourself,
and so bring us at last to your heavenly city
where we shall see you face to face;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.

A warm welcome to everyone! There is an area with toys and books for the under- fives in the corner on the right of the church. Free tea and coffee are served at the end of our service, giving you the chance to chat to those around you, to pray and to make new friends.

First Reading –  Verses from Genesis 1 and 2.

Thanks be to God.

The Gospel Reading is Luke 12: 16 – 30.  

Glory to you, O Lord.

16 Then (Jesus) told them a story. “A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. 17 He said to himself, ‘What should I do? I don’t have room for all my crops.’ 18 Then he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods. 19 And I’ll sit back and say to myself, “My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!”’

20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’

21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”

22 Then, turning to his disciples, Jesus said, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food to eat or enough clothes to wear. 23 For life is more than food, and your body more than clothing. 24 Look at the ravens. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for God feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than any birds! 25 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? 26 And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things?

27 “Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 28 And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

29 “And don’t be concerned about what to eat and what to drink. Don’t worry about such things. 30 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers all over the world, but your Father already knows your needs.

Praise to you, O Christ.

To remember in our prayers to God our Father…

We pray for those who are ill at this time, especially thinking of Sue Poole, Megan Lane, Sue and Terry,  Derek Brettel, Frank Shenton, Bill Woodbridge, little Theo, Linda Jones, Flo Clarke,  Graham Parker, Carol, Hilda Edwards, Sarah Taylor and Tam.

Please pray for God’s comfort for all those who have recently lost loved ones, especially, the family and friends of Marion Smith, Livvy Adams and Mary.

We pray for our community:  Lord God, in the name of Jesus, bless our community to know you, inspire each family to know your purpose for their lives and bless and work in each of our streets, particularly, Peveril Bank, Prince Andrew Drive and Prince Charles Crescent.  Amen.

Please pray for those who need to rely on food banks to help feed their families and those who run these much-needed facilities. Please pray:

  • that in these difficult times enough food is forthcoming
  • that the most needy have the confidence to seek help
  • that more people are able to cope without these organizations
  • that the children in our communities do not go to bed hungry or start a school day without food.

We pray for persecuted Christians throughout the world, this week especially for those in Turkmenistan. Please pray:

  • for protection and endurance for believers rejected by their Muslim families and friends because of their faith;
  • that security forces who are monitoring Christians will encounter the gospel and their hearts will be transformed by God’s love;
  • for increased religious freedom in the country.
