Gracious God, you call us to fullness of life: deliver us from unbelief and banish our anxieties with the liberating love of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen


Old Testament Reading   Jeremiah 11:18-20 (NIV)

18 Because the LORD revealed their plot to me, I knew it, for at that time he showed me what they were doing. 19 I had been like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter; I did not realise that they had plotted against me, saying,

“Let us destroy the tree and its fruit;

let us cut him off from the land of the living,

that his name be remembered no more.”

20 But you, LORD Almighty, who judge righteously

and test the heart and mind,

let me see your vengeance on them,

for to you I have committed my cause.


New Testament Reading   James 3:13-4:3, 7-8a (NIV)

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom. 14 But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth. 15 Such “wisdom” does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.

17 But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 18 Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

4 What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.


Gospel Reading   Mark 9:30-37 (NIV)

30 They left that place and passed through Galilee. Jesus did not want anyone to know where they were, 31 because he was teaching his disciples. He said to them, “The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it.

33 They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the road?” 34 But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.

35 Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”

36 He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, 37 “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”

LORD you have said that when we pray for anything in Your name, you will grant our request. In your mercy….hear these prayers in Jesus name.


Teach Me Lord to Trust in Your Love


O teach me Lord, to trust, when darkness is around me,

O help me walk in faith when I cannot see my way,

O let me know that You will guide me where You want me

O help me trust You, Lord, to lead me into day.

O let me remember, Lord, how you stood there next to Pilate,

Marked there with blood and dirt, a crown of twisted thorn,

Marked with the harsh whip’s stripes you bore to heal the broken,

Prepared to bear your cross, our salvation being born.

You let them mock you there, as you listened to their howlings,

You let them call you fool to bring us through Death’s night.

You took their blows and words, an offering to the Father,

In grief and pain and blood, you brought the world to light.


Please forward any items for inclusion in this news sheet [email protected] by Tuesday evening each week.
