Prelude:  Aire in G   John Robert 



Hymn:  613   We Lay Our Broken World

We lay our broken world in sorrow at your feet,
Haunted by hunger, war, and fear, oppressed by power and hate.

We bring our broken selves, confused and closed and tired;
Then through your gift of healing grace new purpose is inspired.

Come fill us, Fire of God, our life and strength renew;
Find in us love and hope and trust and lift us up to you.

Collect   Stir up, O Lord, the wills of your faithful people, that richly bearing the fruit of good works, we may by you be richly rewarded; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.   Amen.

Reading:  Exodus 3:1-5     read by Martha Patterson
Moses was keeping the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian; he led his flock beyond the wilderness, and came to Horeb, the mountain of God. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of a bush; he looked, and the bush was blazing, yet it was not consumed. Then Moses said, ‘I must turn aside and look at this great sight and see why the bush is not burned up.’ When the Lord saw that he had turned aside to see, God called to him out of the bush, ‘Moses, Moses!’ And he said, ‘Here I am.’ Then he said, ‘Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.’
Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.  Thanks be to God.

Gospel:  Matthew 15:21-28
Jesus left that place and went away to the district of Tyre and Sidon. Just then a Canaanite woman from that region came out and started shouting, ‘Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is tormented by a demon.’ But he did not answer her at all. And his disciples came and urged him, saying, ‘Send her away, for she keeps shouting after us.’ He answered, ‘I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.’ But she came and knelt before him, saying, ‘Lord, help me.’ He answered, ‘It is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.’ She said, ‘Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.’ Then Jesus answered her, ‘Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.’ And her daughter was healed instantly.

The Lord’s Prayer

Hymn:  347   The God of Abraham Praise

The God of Abraham praise who reigns enthroned above;
Ancient of everlasting Days, and God of love;
Jehovah, great I AM! By earth and heaven confessed;
I bow and bless the sacred name forever blest.

The great I AM has sworn; I on this oath depend.
I shall, on eagle wings up-borne, to heaven ascend.
I shall behold God’s face; I shall God’s power adore,
And sing the wonders of God’s grace for evermore.

Triumphant hosts on high give thanks eternally
And “Holy, holy, holy” cry, “great Trinity!”
Hail Abraham’s God and ours! One mighty hymn we raise:
All power and majesty be yours and endless praise!

Sanctuary Flowers
The flowers are given to the Glory of God and in memory of
Rev. Dr. Frank Morrissey, Dean of the Faculty of Canon Law, Saint Paul University, from 1970 to 1984,

Offering:  Blessed be thou, Lord God of Israel for ever and ever.  All that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine. All things come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
