Pentecost Sunday, June 5, 2022

In person service held each Sunday morning at All Saints by-the-Sea.  All are welcome.

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLESSINGS to Jim Smith (June 3) and Zeman Corvi (June 4).
O God, our times are in your hand:
Look with favour, we pray, on your servants Jim & Zeman as they begin another year.
Grant that they may grow in wisdom and grace, and strengthen their trust in your goodness
all the days of their lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

CONGRATULATIONS to Coreen & Wayne Hewitt in celebrating their 36th Wedding Anniversary
this week (June 7)!
By the power of your Holy Spirit, pour out the abundance of your blessing upon this man and this woman. Defend them from every enemy. Lead them into all peace. Let their love for each other be a seal upon their hearts, a mantle about their shoulders, and a crown upon their foreheads. Bless them in their work and in their companionship; in their sleeping and in their waking; in their joys and in their sorrows; in their life and in their death. Finally, in your mercy, bring them to that table where your saints feast for ever in your heavenly home; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, for ever and ever. Amen

WE REMEMBER the late Marjorie Lomas, who died nine years ago on June 12, 2013 at age 96.
The eternal God is thy refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. [Deut. 33.27]

BLESSING
 Light looked down and saw darkness “I will go there,” said light. Peace looked down and saw war. “I will go there,” said peace. Love looked down and saw hatred. “I will go there.” said love. So he, the Lord of Light, the Prince of Peace, the King of love, came down and crept in beside us. And the blessing of God.... 

DISMISSAL
Go in peace; Christ is with you.
Thanks be to God.
