    THE DEANERY OF RADNOR & BUILTH

    Holy Communion – 16 Sunday after Trinity – Sept 27th

    Leader Rev Rachael Storer

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

    Grace and peace be with you.  And keep you in the love of Christ.

    Hymn led by Adeline Jennings              

    Lord Jesus Christ, you have come to us
    you are one with us, Mary’s son.
    Cleansing our souls from all their sin
    pouring your love and goodness in

    Jesus our love for you we sing, living Lord.

    Lord Jesus Christ now and every day
    teach us how to pray, Son of God.
    You have commanded us to do
    this in remembrance Lord of you

    into our lives, your power breaks through, living Lord.

    Lord Jesus Christ, I would come to you
    live my life for you, Son of God.
    All your commands I know are true,
    your many gifts will make me new,

    into my life, your power breaks through, living Lord;

    Heavenly Father, all hearts are open to you. No secrets are hidden from you. Purify us with the fire of your Holy Spirit that we may love and worship you faithfully, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

    Christ, have mercy. Christ, have mercy.

    Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

    We confess our sins saying:-

    Heavenly Father, we have sinned in thought, word and deed,

    and have failed to do what we ought to have done.

    We are sorry and truly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ who died for us, forgive us all that is past and lead us in his way to walk as children of light. Amen.

    Almighty God, who forgives all who truly repent, have mercy on you and set you free from sin, strengthen you in goodness and keep you in eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

    The Gloria

    Glory to God in the highest,

    and peace to his people on earth.                       

    Lord God, heavenly King,

    almighty God and Father,     

    we worship you, we give you thanks,

    we praise you for your glory.

    Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, 

    Lord God, Lamb of God,              

    you take away the sin of the world: have mercy on us;                                     

    you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer.

    For you alone are the Holy One,  

    you alone are the Lord,                        

    you alone are the Most High,

    Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit,

    in the glory of God the Father.  Amen.

    The Collect

    O Lord, we beseech you mercifully to hear the prayers

    of your people who call upon you;

    and grant that they may both perceive and know

    what things they ought to do,

    and also may have grace and power

    faithfully to fulfil them;

    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.

    Old Testament reading:-   Ezekiel 18. 1-4, 25-32

    The word of the Lord came to me: What do you mean by repeating this proverb concerning the land of Israel, ‘The parents have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on edge’? As I live, says the Lord God, this proverb shall no more be used by you in Israel. Know that all lives are mine; the life of the parent as well as the life of the child is mine: it is only the person who sins that shall die.

    Yet you say, ‘The way of the Lord is unfair.’ Hear now, O house of Israel: Is my way unfair? Is it not your ways that are unfair? When the righteous turn away from their righteousness and commit iniquity, they shall die for it; for the iniquity that they have committed they shall die. Again, when the wicked turn away from the wickedness they have committed and do what is lawful and right, they shall save their life. Because they considered and turned away from all the transgressions that they had committed, they shall surely live; they shall not die. Yet the house of Israel says, ‘The way of the Lord is unfair.’ O house of Israel, are my ways unfair? Is it not your ways that are unfair?

    Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, all of you according to your ways, says the Lord God. Repent and turn from all your transgressions; otherwise iniquity will be your ruin. Cast away from you all the transgressions that you have committed against me, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit! Why will you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, says the Lord God. Turn, then, and live.

    This is the word of the Lord.  Thanks be to God.

    Psalm 25. 1-9

    To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, in you I trust; do not let me be put to shame; do not let my enemies exult over me. Do not let those who wait for you be put to shame; let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

    Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth, and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all day long.

    Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and of your steadfast love, for they have been from of old. Do not remember the sins of my youth or my transgressions; according to your steadfast love remember me, for your goodness’ sake, O Lord!

    Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.

    New Testament reading:- Philippians 2. 1-13

    If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, he humbled himself and became obedient to the point of death – even death on a cross.

    Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

    Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed me, not only in my presence, but much more now in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

    This is the word of the Lord.  Thanks be to God.

    Gospel reading:- Matthew chapter 21. 23-32

    Listen to the gospel of Christ according to Saint Matthew. Glory to you, O Lord

    When he entered the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came to him as he was teaching, and said, ‘By what authority are you doing these things, and who gave you this authority?’ Jesus said to them, ‘I will also ask you one question; if you tell me the answer, then I will also tell you by what authority I do these things. Did the baptism of John come from heaven, or was it of human origin?’ And they argued with one another, ‘If we say, “From heaven”, he will say to us, “Why then did you not believe him?” But if we say, “Of human origin”, we are afraid of the crowd; for all regard John as a prophet.’ So they answered Jesus, ‘We do not know.’ And he said to them, ‘Neither will I tell you by what authority I am doing these things.

    ‘What do you think? A man had two sons; he went to the first and said, “Son, go and work in the vineyard today.” He answered, “I will not”; but later he changed his mind and went. The father went to the second and said the same; and he answered, “I go, sir”; but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?’ They said, ‘The first.’ Jesus said to them, ‘Truly I tell you, the tax-collectors and the prostitutes are going into the kingdom of God ahead of you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness and you did not believe him, but the tax-collectors and the prostitutes believed him; and even after you saw it, you did not change your minds and believe him.

    This is the gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, O Christ.

    Talk – Rev Rachel Storer

    Apostles’ Creed

    I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.                                                                                                      

    I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.       

    He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

    He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.

    He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again.

    He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

    He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church,

    the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins,

    the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. Amen.

    The Intercessions led by Gina Ayling may include these responses

    Lord in your mercy. Hear our prayer.

    Merciful Father, accept these prayers for the sake of your Son,

    our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Celebrant Rev Janet Day

    The Peace

    Christ, the Prince of Peace, breaks down the walls that divide us. God has called us to live in peace. The peace of the Lord be with you always.

    And also with you.

    Hymn led by Jess                  

    Lord of all hopefulness, Lord of all joy,

    whose trust, ever childlike, no cares could destroy:

    Be there at our waking, and give us, we pray,

    your bliss in our hearts, Lord, at the break of the day.

    Lord of all eagerness, Lord of all faith,

    whose strong hands were skilled at the plane and the lathe:

    Be there at our labors, and give us, we pray,

    your strength in our hearts, Lord, at the noon of the day.

    Lord of all kindliness, Lord of all grace,

    your hands swift to welcome, your arms to embrace:

    Be there at our homing, and give us, we pray,

    your love in our hearts, Lord, at the eve of the day.

    Lord of all gentleness, Lord of all calm,

    whose voice is contentment, whose presence is balm:

    Be there at our sleeping, and give us, we pray,

    your peace in our hearts, Lord, at the end of the day.

    As the following words of introduction to the Eucharist are said, you are encouraged to raise the bread and then the wine which you have brought to the table.

    Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation.

    Through your goodness we have this bread to offer,

    which earth has given and human hands have made.

    It will become for us the bread of life.

    Blessed be God for ever.

    Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation.

    Through your goodness we have this wine to offer,

    fruit of the vine and work of human hands.

    It will become our spiritual drink.

    Blessed be God for ever.

    The Lord be with you.                              

    And also with you.          

    Lift up your hearts.                                  

    We lift them to the Lord.

    Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

    It is right to give our thanks and praise.

    It is indeed right, it is our duty and our joy at all times and in all places to give you thanks, holy Father, all-powerful and everliving God, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Who by his death has destroyed death and by his rising to life again has restored to us eternal life.

    And so with the hosts of angels and all the company of heaven

    we proclaim the glory of your name and join in their unending hymn of praise:

    Holy, holy, holy Lord.                                             

    God of power and might,                                      

    heaven and earth are full of your glory.              

    Hosanna in the highest.                                       

    Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

    Hosanna in the highest.

    All praise and thanks to you, true and living God, Creator of all things, Giver of life.

    You formed us in your own image;

    but we have marred that image and fall short of your glory.

    We give you thanks that you sent your Son to share our life;

    you gave him up to death that the world might be saved,

    and you raised him from the dead that we might live in him and he in us.

    Sanctify with your Spirit this bread and wine, your gifts to us,

    that they may be for us the body and blood of our Saviour Jesus Christ.

    On the night he was betrayed, he took bread,

    and when he had given thanks 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.

    In the same way after supper he took the cup,

    and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, saying,

    Drink from this, all of you, for this is my blood of the new covenant

    which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins:

    do this as often as you drink it in remembrance of me.

    Let us proclaim the mystery of faith:                          

    Christ has died.                                                     

    Christ is risen.                                                       

    Christ will come in glory.

    As he has commanded us, Father, we remember Jesus Christ, your Son.

    Proclaiming his victorious death, rejoicing in his resurrection and waiting for him to come in glory we bring to you this bread, this cup.

    Accept our sacrifice of thanks and praise.

    Restore and revive your people, renew us and all for whom we pray with your grace and heavenly blessing, and at the last receive us with all your saints into that unending joy promised by your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Through him, with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honour and glory are yours, almighty Father, forever and ever.         

    Amen.

    As our Saviour taught us, we boldly pray:        

    Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy name,        

    thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

    Give us this day our daily bread. 

    And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

    For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

    Prayer of Humble Access

    We do not presume to come to this your table, merciful Lord, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your manifold and great mercies. We are not worthy so much as to gather up the crumbs under your table. But you are the same Lord, whose nature is always to have mercy. Grant us therefore gracious Lord so to eat the flesh of your dear Son Jesus Christ and to drink his blood,

    that we may evermore dwell in him and he in us. Amen.

    The Communion

    The bread is broken

    Every time we eat this bread and drink this cup

    we proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

    Jesus, Lamb of God: have mercy on us.                    

    Jesus, bearer of our sins: have mercy on us.    

    Jesus, redeemer of the world: give us your peace.

    Come let us receive the body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ,

    given for us and feed on him in our hearts by faith with thanksgiving.

    The body of Christ keep you in eternal life. Amen.                 We share the bread

    The blood of Christ keep you in eternal life. Amen.        We share the wine

    Give thanks to the Lord for he is gracious: his love is everlasting.

    Post Communion Prayer 114

    Almighty God,

    you have taught us through your Son

    that love is the fulfilling of the law:

    grant that we may love you with our whole heart

    and our neighbours as ourselves;

    through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    Eternal God, comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken,

    you have fed us at the table of life and hope:

    teach us the ways of gentleness and peace,

    that all the world may acknowledge the kingdom of your Son,

    Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    all to him I freely give;

    truly know that thou art mine.           Refrain

    All to Jesus I surrender,
    Lord, I give myself to thee;
    fill me with thy love and power,
    let thy blessing fall on me.              Refrain

    All to Jesus I surrender,
    now I feel the sacred flame.
    Oh, the joy of full salvation!
    Glory, glory to his name!                 Refrain

    The Lord be with you.  And also with you

    May the peace of God which passes all understanding keep your hearts and minds, in the knowledge and love of God and of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

    And the blessing of God almighty, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,                                           

    be among you and remain with you always.      Amen.

    Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.          In the name of Christ. Amen.

    Morning Prayer

    15th Sunday After Trinity

    Led by Reverend Petra Goodband

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

    One thing I have asked of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life; to behold the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His temple.

    Hymn led by Adeline                                                                                                                    

    Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
    The holy One, is here;
    Come bow before him now
    With reverence and fear
    In him no sin is found
    We stand on holy ground.
    Be still, for the presence of the Lord,
    The holy One, is here.

    Be still, for the glory of the Lord
    Is shining all around;
    He burns with holy fire,
    With splendour he is crowned:
    How awesome is the sight
    Our radiant king of light!
    Be still, for the glory of the Lord
    Is shining all around.

    Peace on each one who comes in need                                               Peace on each one who comes in joy

    Peace on each who offers prayers                                                     Peace on each who offers song

    Peace of the Maker, Peace of the Son                                                 Peace of the Spirit, the Triune One

    Come, Lord, come to us. Enter our darkness with your light, fill our emptiness with your presence, come refresh, restore, renew us. In our sadness, come as joy, in our troubles, come as peace, in our fearfulness, come as hope, in our darkness, come as light, in our frailty, come as strength, in our loneliness come as love, come refresh, restore, renew us. 

    Confession and Absolution:                                                                                                                                                                         God our Father, long-suffering, full of grace and truth, you create us from nothing and give us life. You give your faithful people new life in the water of baptism. You do not turn your face from us, nor cast us aside. We confess that we have sinned against you and against our neighbour. We have wounded your love and marred your image in us. Restore us for the sake of your Son, and bring us to heavenly joy, in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    May the God of love bring you back to himself, forgive you your sins, and assure you of his eternal love in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

    Exodus 16. 2-15                                                                                                                                                                                           The whole congregation of the Israelites complained against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness. The Israelites said to them, ‘If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the fleshpots and ate our fill of bread; for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.’

    Then the Lord said to Moses, ‘I am going to rain bread from heaven for you, and each day the people shall go out and gather enough for that day. In that way I will test them, whether they will follow my instruction or not. On the sixth day, when they prepare what they bring in, it will be twice as much as they gather on other days.’

    So Moses and Aaron said to all the Israelites, ‘In the evening you shall know that it was the Lord who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and in the morning you shall see the glory of the Lord, because he has heard your complaining against the Lord. For what are we, that you complain against us?’ And Moses said, ‘When the Lord gives you meat to eat in the evening and your fill of bread in the morning, because the Lord has heard the complaining that you utter against him—what are we? Your complaining is not against us but against the Lord.’

    Then Moses said to Aaron, ‘Say to the whole congregation of the Israelites, “Draw near to the Lord, for he has heard your complaining.” ’ And as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the Israelites, they

    looked towards the wilderness, and the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud.

    The Lord spoke to Moses and said, ‘I have heard the complaining of the Israelites; say to them, “At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall have your fill of bread; then you shall know that I am the Lord your God.” ’

    In the evening quail came up and covered the camp; and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp. When the layer of dew lifted, there on the surface of the wilderness was a fine flaky substance, as fine as frost on the ground. When the Israelites saw it, they said to one another, ‘What is it?’ For they did not know what it was.

    Moses said to them, ‘It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat.

    Psalm 105. 1-6, 37-45 

    O give thanks to the Lord, call on his name,
        make known his deeds among the peoples.
    Sing to him, sing praises to him;
        tell of all his wonderful works.
    Glory in his holy name;
        let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
    Seek the Lord and his strength;
        seek his presence continually.
    Remember the wonderful works he has done,
        his miracles, and the judgments he has uttered,
    O offspring of his servant Abraham,
        children of Jacob, his chosen ones. 

    Then he brought Israel out with silver and gold,
        and there was no one among their tribes who stumbled.
    Egypt was glad when they departed,
        for dread of them had fallen upon it.
    He spread a cloud for a covering,
        and fire to give light by night.
    They asked, and he brought quails,
        and gave them food from heaven in abundance.
    He opened the rock, and water gushed out;
        it flowed through the desert like a river.
    For he remembered his holy promise,
        and Abraham, his servant.

    So he brought his people out with joy,
        his chosen ones with singing.
    He gave them the lands of the nations,
        and they took possession of the wealth of the peoples,
    that they might keep his statutes
        and observe his laws.
    Praise the Lord!

    Philippians 1. 21-30                                                                                                                                                     For to me, living is Christ and dying is gain. If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labour for me; and I do not know which I prefer. I am hard pressed between the two: my desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better; but to remain in the flesh is more necessary for you. Since I am convinced of this, I know that I will remain and continue with all of you for your progress and joy in faith, so that I may share abundantly in your boasting in Christ Jesus when I come to you again.

    Only, live your life in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that, whether I come and see you or am absent and hear about you, I will know that you are standing firm in one spirit, striving side by side with one mind for the faith of the gospel, and are in no way intimidated by your opponents. For them this is evidence of their destruction, but of your salvation. And this is God’s doing. For he has graciously granted you the privilege not only of believing in Christ, but of suffering for him as well—since you are having the same struggle that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.

    Matthew 20. 1-16                                                                                                                                                    ‘For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire labourers for his vineyard. After agreeing with the labourers for the usual daily wage, he sent them into his vineyard.

    When he went out about nine o’clock, he saw others standing idle in the market-place; and he said to them, “You also go into the vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.” So they went.

    When he went out again about noon and about three o’clock, he did the same. And about five o’clock he went out and found others standing around; and he said to them, “Why are you standing here idle all day?”

    They said to him, “Because no one has hired us.”

    He said to them, “You also go into the vineyard.”

    When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his manager, “Call the labourers and give them their pay, beginning with the last and then going to the first.”

    When those hired about five o’clock came, each of them received the usual daily wage. Now when the first came, they thought they would receive more; but each of them also received the usual daily wage. And when they received it, they grumbled against the landowner, saying, “These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.”

    But he replied to one of them, “Friend, I am doing you no wrong; did you not agree with me for the usual daily wage? Take what belongs to you and go; I choose to give to this last the same as I give to you. Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or are you envious because I am generous?”

    So the last will be first, and the first will be last.’

    Sermon Reverend Mark Beaton

    Hymn led by Mark

    Take my life and let it be
    Consecrated, Lord, to thee
    Take my moments and my days
    Let them flow in ceaseless praise

    Take my hands and let them move
    At the impulse of thy love
    Take my feet and let them be
    Swift and beautiful for thee

    Take my voice and let me sing
    Always, only for my King
    Take my lips and let them be
    Filled with messages from thee

    Take my silver and my gold
    Not a might would I withhold
    Take my intellect and use
    Every power as thou shalt choose

    Canticle:   

    Christ, as a light

    Illumine and guide me.

    Christ, as a shield

    Overshadow me.

    Christ under me;

    Christ over me;

    Christ beside me

    on my left and my right.

    This day be within and without me,

    Lowly and meek, yet all powerful.

    Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;

    in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.

    This day be within and without me,

    Lowly and meek, yet all powerful.

    Christ as a light;

    Christ as a shield;

    Christ beside me

    on my left and my right.

    Intercessions led by Christine Gould

    Our Father, who art in heaven,
    hallowed be thy name;
    thy kingdom come;
    thy will be done;
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation;
    but deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom,
    the power and the glory,
    for ever and ever.
    Amen.

    As we go we will not refuse any destination:                                                  For wild blows the wind of the spirit.

    As we go, we will embrace all that crosses our way:                              For wild blows the wind of the spirit.                                                      

    As we go, we will open our hearts to the good in all creation, despite our reservations:                                                                                                          For wild blows the wind of the spirit.

    As we go, we will hold close to your Word and give all to you:                             For wild blows the wind of the spirit.

    As we go, we will not be bound by our weaknesses nor limited by our strengths:                                                                                                               For wild blows the wind of the spirit.

    As we go, we will see each struggle as a place of learning:                   For wild blows the wind of the spirit.

    As we go, we will welcome any companion who wishes to journey with us:                                                                                       For wild blows the wind of the spirit.

    As we go, we will not predict or plan for rigid outcomes, but will relish all of the surprises and take the greatest risks:                                                      For wild blows the wind of the spirit.

    Hymn led by Jess

    Guide me, O my great Redeemer,
    pilgrim through this barren land;
    I am weak, but thou are mighty;
    hold me with thy powerful hand.
    Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
    feed me now and evermore,
    feed me now and evermore.

    Open now the crystal fountain,
    Whence the healing stream doth flow.
    Let the fiery cloudy pillar
    lead me all my journey through.
    Strong deliverer, strong deliverer,
    be thou still my strength and shield,
    be thou still my strength and shield.

    When I tread the verge of Jordan,
    bid my anxious fears subside.
    Death of death, and hell’s destruction,
    land me safe on Canaan’s side.
    Songs of praises, songs of praises
    I will ever give to thee,

    I will ever give to thee. 

    Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown. Give me the faith to leave old ways and break fresh ground with you. Christ of the mysteries, I trust you to be stronger than each storm within me. I will trust in the darkness and know that my times, even now, are in your hand. Tune my spirit to the music of heaven, and somehow, make my obedience count for you. Amen

    Blessing                                                                                                                May the peace of the Lord Christ go with you, wherever he may send you. May he guide you through the wilderness, protect you through the storm. May he bring you home rejoicing at the wonders he has shown you. May he bring you home rejoicing once again into our doors.

    The Grace:                                                                                                                                                                                                               The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all, evermore. Amen.
