Thirteenth Sunday after

Pentecost

Proper 18

 

September 4, 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.

 

All sing

 

 

 

 

 

Celebrant

 

The Lord be with you.

     And also with you.

 

Let us pray.

 

Grant us, O Lord, to trust in you with all our hearts; for, as you always resist the proud who confide in their own strength, so you never forsake those who make their boast of your mercy; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

 

Please be seated

 

A Reading from Jeremiah 18:1-11

The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Come, go down to the potter’s house, and there I will let you hear my words.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and there he was working at his wheel. The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter’s hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him.

Then the word of the Lord came to me: Can I not do with you, O house of Israel, just as this potter has done? says the Lord. Just like the clay in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel. At one moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, but if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will change my mind about the disaster that I intended to bring on it. And at another moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it, but if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will change my mind about the good that I had intended to do to it. Now, therefore, say to the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: Thus says the Lord: Look, I am a potter shaping evil against you and devising a plan against you. Turn now, all of you from your evil way, and amend your ways and your doings.

The reader concludes by saying

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

All join in saying

 

Psalm 139:1-5, 12-17

 

Lord, you have searched me out and known me;
you know my sitting down and my rising up;
you discern my thoughts from afar.

You trace my journeys and my resting-places
and are acquainted with all my ways.

Indeed, there is not a word on my lips,
but you, O Lord, know it altogether.

You press upon me behind and before
and lay your hand upon me.

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me;
it is so high that I cannot attain to it.

For you yourself created my inmost parts;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I will thank you because I am marvelously made;
your works are wonderful, and I know it well.

My body was not hidden from you,
while I was being made in secret
and woven in the depths of the earth.

Your eyes beheld my limbs, yet unfinished in the womb;
all of them were written in your book;
they were fashioned day by day,
when as yet there was none of them.

How deep I find your thoughts, O God!
how great is the sum of them!

If I were to count them, they would be more in number than the sand;
to count them all, my life span would need to be like yours.

 

 

A Reading from Philemon 1-21

Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother,

 

To Philemon our dear friend and co-worker, to Apphia our sister, to

Archippus our fellow soldier, and to the church in your house:

 

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

When I remember you in my prayers, I always thank my God because I hear of your love for all the saints and your faith toward the Lord Jesus. I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective when you perceive all the good that we may do for Christ. I have indeed received much joy and

encouragement from your love, because the hearts of the saints have been

refreshed through you, my brother.

 

For this reason, though I am bold enough in Christ to command you to do your duty, yet I would rather appeal to you on the basis of love– and I, Paul, do this as an old man, and now also as a prisoner of Christ Jesus. I am

appealing to you for my child, Onesimus, whose father I have become

during my imprisonment. Formerly he was useless to you, but now he is

indeed useful both to you and to me. I am sending him, that is, my own heart, back to you. I wanted to keep him with me, so that he might be of

service to me in your place during my imprisonment for the gospel; but I preferred to do nothing without your consent, in order that your good deed might be voluntary and not something forced. Perhaps this is the reason he was separated from you for a while, so that you might have him back forever, no longer as a slave but more than a slave, a beloved brother—

especially to me but how much more to you, both in the flesh and in the Lord.

 

So if you consider me your partner, welcome him as you would welcome me. If he has wronged you in any way, or owes you anything, charge that to my account. I, Paul, am writing this with my own hand: I will repay it. I say nothing about your owing me even your own self. Yes, brother, let me have this benefit from you in the Lord! Refresh my heart in Christ. Confident of your obedience, I am writing to you, knowing that you will do even more than I say.

The reader concludes by saying

 

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

 

Please stand

 

Hymn 550 (vs. 1,3,5)                                                                      “Jesus calls us”                                                                                 

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke 14:25-33

Glory to you, Lord Christ.

 

Now large crowds were traveling with Jesus; and he turned and said to them, “Whoever comes to me and does not hate father and mother, wife and

children, brothers and sisters, yes, and even life itself, cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not first sit down and estimate the cost, to see whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it will begin to

ridicule him, saying, `This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.’ Or what king, going out to wage war against another king, will not sit down first and consider whether he is able with ten thousand to oppose the one who comes against him with twenty thousand? If he cannot, then, while the other is still far away, he sends a delegation and asks for the terms of peace. So therefore, none of you can become my disciple if you do not give up all your possessions.”

 

The Reader concludes by saying

 

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.

 

Please be seated

 

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

 

Let us pray to our loving God for all who bear the burdens of the world saying, Lord, have mercy.

 

For this holy gathering, and for 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 Anglican Church of Australia; in our Diocesan cycle of prayer, we pray for all who labor and work and or all who seek the dignity of meaningful employment; for all who are

celebrating birthdays this week; for Gene & Carolyn Peterson and all who are

celebrating anniversaries this week.

Lord, have mercy.

For all peoples, tribes, clans, and families and for peace 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 abundant fruits of the earth, and for safety from violent storms.

Lord, have mercy.

For the sick and the suffering, travelers and refugees, prisoners and their families, and the dying and dead.

Lord, have mercy.

For our deliverance from all affliction, strife, and need.

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 life and prosperity, hear us as we beg your mercy, and give us the strength to obey your commandments and to walk your ways; 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

 

Musical Offering                    Musette and Classic Trio          by Gordon Young                          

 

Following the Musical Offering, all stand and sing the Doxology

 

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

Praise him above ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

 

                               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.

 

For by water and the Holy Spirit you have made us a new people in Jesus Christ our Lord, to show forth your glory in all the world.

 

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

 

 

All sing

 

 

 

 

The Celebrant offers the consecrated bread and wine to the people saying

 

The Gifts of God for the People of God.

Let us pray.

 

Please kneel or stand

 

Almighty and everliving God, we thank you for feeding us with the spiritual food of the most precious Body and Blood of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; and for assuring us in these holy mysteries that we are living members of the Body of your Son, and heirs of your eternal kingdom. And now, Father, send us out to do the work you have given us to do, to love and serve you as faithful witnesses of Christ our Lord. To him, to you, and to the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
