Prelude: Slane traditional Irish Melody
Welcome The Reverend Canon David Clunie
Opening Hymn: 436 I Bind Unto Myself Today
Collect O God, you girded your servant Columba with the cincture of holiness and made him a pilgrim for Christ in the midst of the Irish and Scottish peoples. Grant that, having his life and labours in remembrance, we may rest upon your love and be cheerful in all adversities, as we await the redemption of all things in your well-beloved Son, our Lord Jesus Christ; who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Reading: 1 Corinthians 3:11–23 read by Sally Doherty
For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ. Now if anyone builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw— the work of each builder will become visible, for the Day will disclose it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test what sort of work each has done. If what has been built on the foundation survives, the builder will receive a reward. If the work is burned, the builder will suffer loss; the builder will be saved, but only as through fire. Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. Do not deceive yourselves. If you think that you are wise in this age, you should become fools so that you may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their craftiness’, and again, ‘The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.’ So let no one boast about human leaders. For all things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future—all belong to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.
Gospel: Luke 10.17–20
The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, in your name even the demons submit to us!’ He said to them, ‘I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning. See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy; and nothing will hurt you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice at this, that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.’
