Mary and Martha
Sunday Propers

O Lord, mercifully receive the prayers of your people who call upon you, and grant that they may know and understand what things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to accomplish them; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

August Worship: Celtic Service

For the four Sundays of August, our Sunday worship will be devoted to exploring and celebrating the rich tradition of Celtic Christianity. The Celts, who lived at the farthest most extremity of Europe (the British Isles and Brittany), were among the earliest peoples to receive the Gospel and within a few centuries they developed a distinctive tradition of spirituality, worship, and mission that ultimately spread throughout western Europe. In recent years, neo-pagan interest in the Celts, in the church and outside it, has obscured their contribution to the Church. But in our worship in August, which will incorporate authentic prayers, music and liturgies from the historic Celtic tradition, members and newcomers are invited to rediscover this rich tradition and consider if there are elements of it that we need to recover for today.

Imaging the Word
The Parable of the Good Samarian, from the Gospel of Luke, which we read last Sunday, is one of the best known and best loved stories that Jesus told. Involving action as well as pathos, the parable has been a favorite subject for artists throughout the past millennium, with notable painters such as Veronese, Bassano, Millet, Delacroix, and Van Gogh, as well as many other contemporary artists, offering their portrayals of the story.
