Leader: The God who yearns for us calls us to come as a people. Let us not turn away, but rather go to this God with our needs,

People: Forget us not, 0 holy One, hear our prayer.

Leader: We pray today for all the leaders and the followers in the church, and in our Diocese for St. Columba, Ottawa, St. Mark the Evangelist, Ottawa, for the Archives of the Diocese, and for the National Aboriginal Day of Prayer, June 21st, 2013.  In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem we pray for the Penman Clinic, Zebadeh.  For John our bishop, for all bishops, for Arran our Priest and for all the clergy and people.

People: that we know when to give up the unimportant things,

Leader: For people in this community in the grip of addiction,

People: and for all who need release from what enslaves,

Leader: For patience with those who incite to war,

People: and for the wisdom to move into the reign of God’s unending peace,

Leader: For the fearless ones who uphold human rights in every land of oppression,

People: and for all who live where liberty is held hostage in the name of law and order,

Leader: We pray for the sick and the suffering, especially (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (pause).  For this assembly,

People: as we serve the sisters and brothers among us and as we work outside church doors,

Leader: We remember those who have died, especially (insert names) and those we name silently or aloud (pause).  God of light and life, strip us of selfishness and the loneliness it brings.

People: Help us to accept the gift of mutual love, with its shared pleasures and pain. Tear down all our fences that we can run to you as one family, one people, through Christ our Lord.  Amen.

BIG SOUL PROJECT FUNDRAISER: There will be a short meeting following the service today for all those interested in helping out with the Big Soul Project fundraiser.

LET’S GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER!  I would like to make appointments with members of the congregation to visit you at home, in your office, at the cottage, or take you out for coffee/tea.  You can contact the office, email me, phone me or make an appointment when we see each other at church.  Hope to visit with you soon!  Rev. Arran.


PLEASE SAVE THE DATE! Frosty’s Fair will be held on Saturday, November 2nd from 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.  We need volunteers to set up on Friday evening and take down on Saturday.  We are also in need of people to work at the various tables on Saturday.  You don’t have to commit yourself for the entire weekend; just an hour or two of your time would be greatly appreciated.  Any items that you would like to “re-gift” or donate would be most welcome.  Please look for further details in the weekly bulletins in September.  If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help out, please contact Brenda Cheeseman at 613-226-8305 or
