The Propers and Announcements for the Sixth Sunday after Trinity

The Propers for the Sixth Sunday after Trinity

The Book of Common Prayer 1928

The Collect

O GOD, who hast prepared for those who love thee such good things as pass man’s understanding; Pour into our hearts such love toward thee, that we, loving thee above all things, may obtain thy promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Epistle. Romans vi. 3.

KNOW ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Gospel. St. Matthew v. 20.

JESUS said unto his disciples, Except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: but I say unto you, that whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell-fire. Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift. Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

Parish Surveys have been submitted
Many thanks to all those who filled out the parish surveys for our Facilities Expansion Discernment Committee! Your input will be of great value as we seek to discern the mind of the congregation with respect to expanding our facilities.

Let us continue to worship God through our tithes and offerings.

“All things come of thee, O Lord, and of thine own have we given thee.” I Chronicles xxis. 14.

We do not always or necessarily think of our tithes and offerings as a form of worship, but that is exactly what they are: in praise and thanksgiving to God for giving us both our daily sustenance, and the hope of everlasting life, we return a portion of what we have been given to Him, to His honour and glory, and for the well-being of His holy Church in this place and beyond. Let us give generously, as we are able, and as He has given generously to us.

Summer can be especially challenging for parish finances, as many folks are away on vacation or visiting family. Let’s not neglect to continue to support our parish, even when we are away from it! Many thanks.
