The Proclamation of the Word A READING FROM THE BOOK OF ISAIAH Read by Rueben Russouw For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered or come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I am creating; for I am about to create Jerusalem as a joy, and its people as a delight. I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and delight in my people; no more shall the sound of weeping be heard in it, or the cry of distress. No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few days, or an old person who does not live out a lifetime; for one who dies at a hundred years will be considered a youth, and one who falls short of a hundred will be considered accursed. They shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. They shall not build and another inhabit; they shall not plant and another eat; for like the days of a tree shall the days of my people be, and my chosen shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, or bear children for calamity; for they shall be offspring blessed by the Lordand their descendants as well. Before they call I will answer, while they are yet speaking I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, the lion shall eat straw like the ox; but the serpent its food shall be dust! They shall not hurt or destroy on all my holy mountain, says the Lord. ISAIAH 65:1725 The word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. PSALM 98 (Please remain seated for the psalm.) Sing to the LORD a new song, * for he has done mar-ve-lous things. With his right hand and his holy arm * has he won for him-self the vic-to-ry. The LORD has made known his vic-to-ry; * his righteousness has he openly shown in the sight of the na-tions. He remembers his mercy and faithfulness to the house of Is-ra-el, * and all the ends of the earth have seen the vic-to-ry of our God. Shout with joy to the LORD all you lands; * lift up your voice re-joice and sing. Sing to the LORD with the harp, * with the harp and the voice of song. With trumpets and the sound of the horn * shout with joy be-fore the King the LORD.
- Let the sea make a noise and all that is in it, * the lands and those who dwell there-in. Let the rivers clap their hands, * and let the hills ring out with joy before the LORD / when he comes to judge the earth. In righteousness shall he judge the world * and the peo-ples with e-qui-ty. Glory be to the Father and to the Son: and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be: world with-out end A-men. A READING FROM THE SECOND LETTER OF PAUL TO THE THESSALONIANS Read by Esma Brathwaite Now we command you, beloved in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to keep away from believers who are living in idleness and not according to the tradition that they received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to imitate us; we were not idle when we were with you, and we did not eat anyones bread without paying for it; but with toil and labour we worked night and day, so that we might not burden any of you. This was not because we do not have that right but in order to give you an example to imitate. For even when we were with you, we gave you this command: Anyone unwilling to work should not eat. For we hear that some of you are living in idleness, mere busybodies, not doing any work. Now such persons we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to do their work quietly and to earn their own living. 13Brothers and sisters, do not be weary in doing what is right. 2 THESSALONIANS 3:613 The word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. Choir: All: Cantor: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia Stand up and raise your heads,* because your redemption is drawing near. All: Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia Gospeller: The Lord be with you. All: And also with you. Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke. All: Glory be to thee, O Lord. When some were speaking about the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God, Jesus said, As for these things that you see, the days will come when not one stone will be left upon another; all will be thrown down. They asked him, Teacher, when will this be, and what will be the sign that this is about to take place? And he said, Beware that you are not led astray; for many will come in my name and say, I am he! and, The time is near! Do not go after them. When you hear of wars and insurrections, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end will not follow immediately. Then he said to them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and plagues; 11and there will be dreadful portents and great signs from heaven. But before all this occurs, they will arrest you and persecute you; they will hand you over to synagogues and prisons, and you will be brought before kings and governors because of my name. This will give you an opportunity to testify. So make up your minds not to prepare your defence in advance; for I will give you words and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to withstand or contradict. You will be betrayed even by parents and brothers, by relatives and friends; and they will put some of you to death. You will be hated by all because of my name. But not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your souls. LUKE 21:519 Gospel Alleluia: Gospeller: All: The Gospel of Christ: Praise be to thee, O Christ.

- Organ: Stately Sortie Andrew Fletcher We welcome our new members, newcomers and visitors today. Refreshments are provided in the entrance area; please take a moment to enjoy them and share in fellowship. To help us know each other better and to provide ministry as needed, please fill out the envelope available in the pews and at the entrance to the church. Today we remember in our Prayers: Anglican Cycle of Prayer, The Council of the General Synod of the ACC Diocesan Cycle, St. Matthew, Oshawa Deanery Cycle, Regional Dean Parish Cycle, Our Leadership Ministry Team Outreach & Advocacy Cycle, Trinity, Barrie & Trinity, Bradford Music Notes: As Anglicans we have many different ways of expressing ourselves musically in our services. In the middle part of the last century, St. Barnabas enjoyed a choir that sang musical settings of the communion service and morning/evening prayer music that precluded active congregational participation, but encouraged people to worship in a non-participatory way. In the past three years or so, weve resurrected this tradition by having the choir sing choral settings of the eucharist two or three times a year by no means meant to be a concert, but allowing an opportunity for music to speak for you. In the past we have done communion settings of the Kyrie, Sanctus and Agnus Dei by Mozart, Faur, Viadana, Walter MacNutt and others; today the setting is by a 20th century English born composer named Kenneth Leighton (1929-1988) who spent the major part of his career as music professor at the University of Edinburgh. The composer of the organ prelude this morning, Stanley Vann, was for many years the organist of Englands Peterborough Cathedral (from 1953 to 1977) which is located about 75 miles or so north of London, in Cambridgeshire. By all accounts he was a competent organist, and composed a great deal of music for the church, but it is Vanns reputation as a choirmaster that stands out. Andrew Fletcher, born in 1950, is an English organist, conductor and composer. The Australian born musician Sir William McKie was, between 1941 and 1963, organist at Westminster Abbey. He had the musical responsibility for several royal occasions during that period, including both the marriage and coronation of Queen Elizabeth. For the former occasion he composed the anthem were singing this morning, We wait for thy loving kindness. On a personal note, Sir William retired to Ottawa, having married a Canadian, and where on a few occasions filled in for me when I was organist at St. Barnabas Church there in the early/mid 1970s.
