Ninth Sunday after

Pentecost

Proper 14

 

August 7, 2022

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      Welcome to Christ Cathedral

 

In the spirit of the Gospels, the mission of Christ Cathedral is to

“Meet people where they are, serve ALL, and live together in Christ’s love.”

 

It is the tradition of the Episcopal Church to maintain silence in the worship area so that people may pray. Please help us preserve an atmosphere of quiet reverence before

 worship begins, remembering to turn cell phones off; let the music of the opening

 prelude quiet your thoughts as you prepare to worship. We welcome children of all ages to worship with us. Children’s bulletins, books, and “fidget toys” are available as you

 enter the Cathedral to help our children stay connected to the service.

Blessed be God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

And blessed by his kingdom, now and for ever. Amen.

 

Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you, and worthily magnify your holy Name; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Celebrant

 

The Lord be with you.

     And also with you.

 

Let us pray.

 

Grant to us, Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who cannot exist without you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

A Reading from Isaiah 1:1, 10-20

 

The vision of Isaiah son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and

Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah.

Hear the word of the Lord,
you rulers of Sodom!

Listen to the teaching of our God,
you people of Gomorrah!

What to me is the multitude of your sacrifices?
says the Lord;

I have had enough of burnt offerings of rams
and the fat of fed beasts;

I do not delight in the blood of bulls,
or of lambs, or of goats.

When you come to appear before me,
who asked this from your hand?
Trample my courts no more;

bringing offerings is futile;
incense is an abomination to me.

New moon and sabbath and calling of convocation–
I cannot endure solemn assemblies with iniquity.

Your new moons and your appointed festivals
my soul hates;

they have become a burden to me,
I am weary of bearing them.

When you stretch out your hands,
I will hide my eyes from you;

even though you make many prayers,
I will not listen;
your hands are full of blood.

Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean;
remove the evil of your doings
from before my eyes;

cease to do evil,
learn to do good;

seek justice,
rescue the oppressed,

defend the orphan,
plead for the widow.

Come now, let us argue it out,
says the Lord:

though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be like snow;

though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.

If you are willing and obedient,
you shall eat the good of the land;

but if you refuse and rebel,
you shall be devoured by the sword;
for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

The reader concludes by saying

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

 

All join in saying

 

Psalm 50:1-8, 23-24

 

The Lord, the God of gods, has spoken;
he has called the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.

Out of Zion, perfect in its beauty,
God reveals himself in glory.

Our God will come and will not keep silence;
before him there is a consuming flame,
and round about him a raging storm.

He calls the heavens and the earth from above
to witness the judgment of his people.

“Gather before me my loyal followers,
those who have made a covenant with me
and sealed it with sacrifice.”

Let the heavens declare the rightness of his cause;
for God himself is judge.

Hear, O my people, and I will speak
“O Israel, I will bear witness against you;
for I am God, your God.

I do not accuse you because of your sacrifices;
your offerings are always before me.

Consider this well, you who forget God,
lest I rend you and there be none to deliver you.

Whoever offers me the sacrifice of thanksgiving honors me;
but to those who keep in my way will I show the salvation of God.”

A Reading from Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Indeed, by faith our ancestors received approval. By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was made from things that are not visible.

 

By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and he set out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he stayed for a time in the land he had been promised, as in a foreign land, living in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise. For he looked forward to the city that has foundations, whose architect and builder is God. By faith he received power of procreation, even though he was too old– and Sarah herself was barren– because he

considered him faithful who had promised. Therefore from one person, and this one as good as dead, descendants were born, “as many as the stars of heaven and as the innumerable grains of sand by the seashore.”

 

All of these died in faith without having received the promises, but from a distance they saw and greeted them. They confessed that they were strangers and foreigners on the earth, for people who speak in this way make it clear that they are seeking a homeland. If they had been thinking of the land that they had left behind, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; indeed, he has prepared a city for them.

 

The reader concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

Please stand

 

Hymn 68                                                                 “Rejoice! rejoice, believers”

 

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke 12:32-40

Glory to you, Lord Christ.

 

Jesus said to his disciples, “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it is your

Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms. Make purses for yourselves that do not wear out, an unfailing treasure in heaven, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

 

“Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.

 

“But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have let his house be broken into. You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.”

 

The Reader concludes by saying

 

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

Sermon                                                                          The Rev. Dr. Bobby Smith

Celebrant and People

 

Please stand and say the Nicene Creed

 

We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven:

by the power of the Holy Spirit

he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,

and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again

in accordance with the Scriptures;

he ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,

and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son.

With the Father and the Son, he is worshiped and glorified.

He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

 

Please remain standing

 

Leader

 

Dressed and ready for the coming of the kingdom, let us pray for the bounty of God in every place saying, Lord, have mercy.

 

For this holy gathering and the people of God in every place.

Lord, have mercy.

For Justin the Archbishop of Canterbury; Michael our Presiding Bishop; Mark and Michael our Bishops; for Bobby our Provost; Catherine our Curate; Basil our

Assisting Priest; in our Anglican cycle of prayer, we pray for The Church in the Province of the West Indies; in our Diocesan cycle of prayer, we pray for the

Liturgical assistants serving the churches: lectors, lay readers, Eucharistic ministers, and Eucharistic visitors; for Don Grunden and all who are celebrating birthdays this week; for Boo & Melissa Hodges and all who are celebrating anniversaries this week.

Lord, have mercy.

For mercy, peace, and justice in the world; for Joe our President, Laura our

Governor; Trent our Mayor, and for justice, mercy, and peace.

Lord, have mercy.

For this city of Salina, and those who live in it; and for ourselves, our families,

companions, and all those we love.

Lord, have mercy.

For good weather and abundant crops, and for travelers and those on vacation.

Lord, have mercy.

For the sick and the dying, the poor and the oppressed, prisoners and their families, and victims of violence and abuse.

Lord, have mercy.

For those who rest in Christ and for all the dead.

Lord, have mercy.

 

Remembering the ever-blessed Virgin Mary, and all the saints, let us offer ourselves and one another to the living God through Christ.

To you, O Lord.

 

 

 

Celebrant

 

God of Abraham, whose people are like the stars in the sky, hear the prayers we

offer this day and bring us in faith to the land you promised; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

Please kneel or remain standing

 

Celebrant

 

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

 

Silence

 

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

 

Celebrant

 

Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen.

 

Celebrant

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

          And also with you.

 

Welcome

 

Please be seated

Following the Musical Offering, all stand and sing the Doxology

 

Praise God from whom all blessings flow, Praise him all creatures here below.

                               The Holy Communion

 

The people stand as the Celebrant faces them and says

 

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 him thanks and praise.

 

The Celebrant proceeds

It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

 

Through Jesus Christ our Lord; who on the first day of the week overcame death and the grave, and by his glorious resurrection opened to us the way of everlasting life.

 

Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angel and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to

proclaim the glory of your Name:

 

All sing

 

Please kneel or remain standing

 

Then the Celebrant continues

 

We give thanks to you, O God, for the goodness and love which you have made known to us in creation; in the calling of Israel to be our people; in your Word

spoken through the prophets; and above all in the Word made flesh, Jesus, your Son. For in these last days you sent him to be incarnate from the Virgin Mary, to be the Savior and Redeemer of the world. In him, you have delivered us from evil, and made us worthy to stand before you. In him, you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life.

 

At the following words concerning the bread, the Celebrant is to hold it or lay a hand upon it; and at the words concerning the cup, to hold or place a hand upon the cup and any other
vessel containing wine to be consecrated.

 

On the night before he died for us, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.

 

After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.

 

Therefore, according to his command, O Father,

 

Celebrant and People

 

We remember his death,

We proclaim his resurrection,

We await his coming in glory;

 

The Celebrant continues

 

And we offer our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to you, O Lord of all;

presenting to you, from your creation, this bread and this wine.

 

We pray you, gracious God, to send your Holy Spirit upon these gifts that they may be the Sacrament of the Body of Christ and his Blood of the new Covenant. Unite us to your Son in his sacrifice, that we may be acceptable through him, being

sanctified by the Holy Spirit. In the fullness of time, put all things in subjection under your Christ, and bring us to that heavenly country where, with the blessed Virgin Mary and all your saints, we may enter the everlasting heritage of your sons and daughters; through Jesus Christ our Lord, the firstborn of all creation, the head of the Church, and the author of our salvation.

 

By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. AMEN.

 

The Celebrant continues

 

And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,

 

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, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.


The Celebrant breaks the consecrated bread and a moment of silence is observed

Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen.
