Collect of the Day

God of hope,

You are ruler of both night and day,

Guardian of those who wander in shadows.

Be new light and life

For those who live in the darkness of despair,

For those imprisoned by guilt and grief,

For those living with anxiety and depression,

So that, even where death’s grip tightens,

All may know the power of the One

Who conquered fear and death. Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
God’s power can reach even into death and draw out life.

Leader: As God has called us by name out into full, abundant life, let us lay before him now our concerns for the Church and for the world. Let us pray for The Area Parish of Renfrew-Pontiac: St. Paul’s, Renfrew, St. Paul’s, Shawville, Holy Trinity, Radford Holy Trinity, Danford Lake St. James, Otter Lake, The Ven. Gerald Peddle, Interim Priest-in-Charge, The Rev. Carol Hotte, The Rev. Tim Kehoe, St. Thomas the Apostle Stittsville, The Rev. Canon Roger Young, Interim Priest-in-Charge. For our great nation of Canada and its many peoples. In our Companion Diocese, the Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. Peter & St. Paul Church, Aqaba, Jordan. We pray for John, our bishop, Arran, our priest. We pray for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

People: God, chip away from your Church all the built-up layers of complacency or despondency, of over-comfortable familiarity or under-active expectation, until we see again with the freshness and wonder of deepened faith. (Silence)

Leader: Lord, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: God, we call to mind societies and systems of our world. Question our assumptions and challenge our destructive choices; break away the unnoticed scales of prejudice which blind us, so that our world may become increasingly under your reign of justice, righteousness and love. (Silence)

Leader: Lord, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: God, replace our pride with humility until we learn from young children the lessons of wonder and trust. Keep the childlike as a living flame in all of us, whatever our age, and enable us to rediscover your glory all around us. (Silence)

Leader: Lord, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: God, as the sick were brought to Jesus by their loved ones, so we bring to you now all those whom we long to be healed. May they hear your voice and sense your touch. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Lord, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: God, earth-bound we grieve at the loss of loved ones through death; yet we also rejoice in you calling them out into the fullness of everlasting life. At this time, we pray for (insert names) and for those who we name silently or aloud.  (Silence)

Leader: Lord, we believe:

People: help our unbelief.

Leader: God, we thank you for the amazing truth that you always reach out to us in compassion, and always have time for us.

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

We Celebrate the Presence of Jesus

CHRIST’S CHOIR CAMBRIDGE: On Thursday July 5th 2018 at 7pm Christ Choir Cambridge will perform here at Trinity in a little summer concert series were are launching in July.  They also need a place to stay overnight and it would be nice if we can host them.  If you have a spare room to accommodate 1 maybe 2 choristers for one night, it would be much appreciated.  Let Fabien know if you can help.

PRAYER and PRAISE at ANDREW HAYDON PARK!   Come and join in a joyful celebration of the Eucharist on July 18 and August 15. The music starts at 7:00p.m. For more information, see the poster in Bender Hall or speak to Yvonne.

CROSSTALK: Do you have a special event or activity coming up at Trinity? Listing it in Crosstalk is a great way to get the word out to more people. The next issue is in September and the deadline for submissions is July 25th. You can submit your notice online at http/

SPECIAL VESTRY: At the June 19th Vestry meeting a motion was agreed upon: In consideration of the state of Trinity’s finances, it is moved to consult with the Bishop in a timely manner, the option of amalgamation for Trinity Ottawa. It was also agreed that a special Vestry be set for early October.

On June 25th members of corporation, synod representatives and Arran met with Bishop John Chapman to seek his counsel. He has encouraged us to speak to several churches in very broad terms. We are proposing some initial discussions between Trinity’s leaders and other churches in our geographic area. We will address the following: How do we most efficiently offer ministry in our geographic area of (old) Ottawa South; What efficiencies can be created by worshiping and sharing ministries; What are our Commonalities/differences.

Although these discussions move beyond the June 19th motion, we believe having this initial information will serve to inform the October Vestry creating opportunity for a fulsome discussion as we further investigate the possibility of Amalgamation. The wardens invite questions. We may not have answers. We ask for your prayers.

CAMBRIDGE CHOIR POT LUCK: We plan on holding a ‘pot luck’ cold supper for the Cambridge Choir on July 5th. The choir will be practising in the church from 3:30 – 5:30pm, with the concert at 7:00pm. We will need food for approximately 50 people, choir of 25 plus others who will help by bringing food and setting up.

Any help you provide will be greatly appreciated. Food should arrive at the church by 5:00pm. We need people to help with set up of tables and chairs. Disposable plates and cutlery will be used.

REFRESHMENTS AFTER THE SERVICE:  Please join us for lemonade and a snack at the back of the church after today’s service.  If you can help prepare & serve on one or more Sundays over the summer, please see the sign-up sheet at the back.

**Please note starting July 1st, we will be in our SUMMER SCHEDULE, with one service on Sunday at 9:30 a.m.**
