                         PARISH NOTICES

Fr Griffin has hurt his back and will be unable to be with us on July 5th.  Hopefully he will be able to soon.

Don and Linda Welch announced that they had accepted an offer on their house with the closing being in the next couple of weeks. They will be greatly missed but wish them the best in this adventure which will allow them to live close to Vanessa.  

Please remember to check out the flower chart and see if there is a Sunday that you would like to provide flowers for the altar.
Did you know?  We have a parish lending library.  It is on the wall behind the white board. Feel free to take something to read or leave something you think others might like.   

Parish Prayer List:  A new sheet has been provided at the back of the church.  Please take a look so we can pray intentionally for each name on the list. Can someone be moved off our prayer list? Do you know someone we should add?

Pledges:  The collection plate will not be passed but instead will be placed on a table at the back of the church.  

Please let Jo Williams or Tami Cralley know if there is any news to share.

Hear, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest

July 5, 2020 - Year A


The Collect
O God, who hast taught us to keep all thy commandments by loving thee and our neighbor:  Grant us the grace of thy Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to thee with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the same Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen

Lesson:  Zechariah 9:9-12

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
    Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
    righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
10 I will take away the chariots from Ephraim
    and the warhorses from Jerusalem,
    and the battle bow will be broken.
He will proclaim peace to the nations.
    His rule will extend from sea to sea
    and from the River[a] to the ends of the earth.
11 As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you,
    I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit.
12 Return to your fortress, you prisoners of hope;
    even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you.

Psalm 145: 8-14

8       The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, *
     slow to anger and of great kindness.
9       The Lord is loving to everyone *
     and his compassion is over all his works.
10     All your works praise you, O Lord, *
     and your faithful servants bless you.
11     They make known the glory of your kingdom *
     and speak of your power;
12     That the peoples may know of your power *
     and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
13     Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; *
     your dominion endures throughout all ages.
14     The Lord is faithful in all his words *
     and merciful in all his deeds.

Epistle: Romans 7:21-8:6

21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. 22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; 23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. 24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!

So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature[a] a slave to the law of sin.

Life Through the Spirit

8 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you[b] free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh,[c] God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.[d] And so he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires. The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace.

Gospel: Matthew 11:25-30

25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.

27 “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.

28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
