Prelude   Musette    Léon Boëllmann
Opening Hymn:  459   Christ is Our Cornerstone

Grace and Welcome

Father of mercy, alone we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves. When we are discouraged by our weakness, strengthen us to follow Christ, our pattern and our hope; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

Reading:  1 Corinthians 1:18-25    read by Tony Kellett
A Reading from the First Letter of Paul to the Corinthians

For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are
being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the
discernment of the discerning I will thwart.’ Where is the one who is wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, God decided, through the foolishness of our
proclamation, to save those who believe. For Jews demand signs and Greeks desire wisdom, but we proclaim Christ crucified, a stumbling-block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.

Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.  Thanks be to God.

Psalm 19:1 to 4, 13 and 14

Gospel:  John 2:13-22

The Passover of the Jews was near, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple he found people selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and the money changers seated at their tables. Making a whip of cords, he drove all of them out of the temple, both the sheep and the cattle. He also poured out the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. He told those who were selling the doves, "Take these things out of here! Stop making my Father's house a marketplace!" His disciples remembered that it was written, "Zeal for your house will consume me." The Jews then said to him, "What sign can you show us for doing this?" Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." The Jews then said, "This temple has been under construction for forty-six years, and will you raise it up in three days?" But he was speaking of the temple of his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this; and they believed the scripture and the word that Jesus had spoken.

Canada Helps

  • Offertory: Generous financial support is our expression of gratitude which along with our time and talents enables us to provide worship at St. Bart’s and support God’s work in service in our community and beyond.
    We thank our contributors on the PAR program for their monthly automated donations. If you would like to enroll on our monthly withdrawal plan, PAR, you may follow this link
    And thank you for those who have been mailing in their contributions or dropping them through the church mail slot. At this difficult time “Canada Helps” is another way to support us through a credit card payment. (They charge, we think, a reasonable, 3.75% to us)
