We Gather As God’s People

The churches of our Diocese stand on the traditional territories of the Algonquin and Mohawk Nations. May we always dwell on these lands with respect and peace.

Opening Hymn: I Feel the Winds of God Today

I feel the winds of God today;
today my sail I lift,
though heavy oft with drenching spray
and torn with many a rift;
if hope but light the water’s crest,
and see Christ my bark will use,
I’ll seek the seas at his behest,
and brave another cruise.


It is the wind of God that dries
my vain regretful tears,
until with braver thoughts shall rise
the purer, brighter years;
if cast on shores of selfish ease
or pleasure I should be,
O let me feel your freshening breeze,
and I’ll put back to see.

If ever I forget your love
and how that love was shown,
lift high the blood-red flag above;
it bears your name alone.
Great pilot of my onward way,
you wilt not let me drift;
I feel the winds of God today;
today my sail I lift.

Collect of the Day

Ever-faithful One,
you answer the cries of all who call upon your name.
Give us grace to trust in you,
so that we may walk faithfully amidst the storms of life;
through Jesus the Christ,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever. Amen.

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
God is faithful to us through all the storms of life, yet your faith in God is so very small.

Leader: Trusting in our faithful God, let us pray. In our Diocesan Calendar of Prayer, we pray for St. James’, Morrisburg, and Rev. Jon Martin. For the work of the Ottawa Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund. In our Companion Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for The Episcopal Home for Children, Ramallah, Palestine. We pray for John, our bishop, for Arran, our priest. For Allan, our honorary assistant, and for PJ, who leads us in worship this morning. We pray for all clergy and people.
People: Faithful God, we pray for the gift of deeper faith in you, so that we trust you in a way that alters our dependence on everything else, and allows us clearer vision as to the direction and role of the Church. Remind us that it is your Church, and not ours; your work, your power and your kingdom. (Silence)

Leader: Everlasting God:

People: let only your will be done.

Leader: Faithful God, as we call to mind the stormy areas of our world, the raging and the insecurity, the confusion and bewilderment, the restlessness and fear, let your calming and reassuring presence be sensed and recognized, bringing peace and goodness, righteousness and hope. (Silence)

Leader: Everlasting God:

People: let only your will be done.

Leader: Faithful God, come to us in the storms of life, when we let one another down, mishandle opportunities and come to the end of our strength or patience; and bless us with the love that never lets us down. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Everlasting God:

People: let only your will be done.

Leader: Faithful God, we place into your loving keeping all those who have died, knowing their dependence on you and your limitless mercy. We thank you for them and their gifts to the world, and ask that we may, in our turn, come to you across the waters of death and live in your company for ever. We pray especially for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud. (Silence)

Leader: Everlasting God:

People: let only your will be done.


Leader: Faithful God, whose promises stand sure for ever, we thank you for your patience with us and your refusal to give up on us.

Leader: Merciful God,
Accept these prayers in the name of your Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

Prayer over the Gifts

God of all creation,
all you have made is good,
and your love endures forever.
You bring forth bread from the earth
and fruit from the vine.
Nourish us with these gifts,
so that we might be for the world
signs of your gracious presence in Jesus Christ,
our Saviour and Lord. Amen.

An invitation from Robert Taylor, Refugee Committee chair:

Hello all,


It has now been a week since the happy occasion when Ali and his two brothers, Ghassan and Emad, arrived. Everything is going well. But it has been a very busy time, with formalities to be addressed, and the fact that school starts in a month, among other things.


A party where all of us can meet and greet Ali, Ghassan and Emad, as well as their mother Sawsan and sister, Sarah, will be held on Saturday, September 9 at Trinity Anglican Church, 1230 Bank Street, from 2 pm to 4 pm


Everyone is invited. Please come.


The event will be very much like the parties held at Trinity after the Alsebaee family arrived and to mark their first year here.


I look forward to seeing you on September 9.
