The Holy Eucharist

PRELUDE

OTHER SIDE - Steven McCrimmon Jr., solo

If the storm comes, if we burn up

If the wells run dry

You're my reason to believe in Another life

If it all ends and it's over

If the sky falls fire

Best believe me, you will see me

On the other side

If we wake up, lose our patience

Or even lose our lives, oh I feel lucky to say that you've been A friend of mine


Beyoncé, Bankulli, Rosser, Green, & Bennett

O God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth,

Have mercy upon us.


O God the Son, Redeemer of the world,

Have mercy upon us.


O God the Holy Spirit, Sanctifier of the faithful,

Have mercy upon us.


Remember not, Lord Christ, our offenses, nor the offenses of our forefathers; neither reward us according to our sins. Spare us, good Lord, spare thy people, whom thou hast redeemed with thy most precious blood, and by thy mercy preserve us for ever.

From all blindness of heart; from pride, vain glory and hypocrisy; from envy, hatred and malice; and from all want of charity,

Good Lord, deliver us.

Good Lord, deliver us.

Good Lord, deliver us.


From lightning and tempest; from earthquake, fire, and flood; from plague, pestilence, and famine,

Good Lord, deliver us.


From all oppression, conspiracy, and rebellion; from violence, battle, and murder; and from dying suddenly and unprepared,

Good Lord, deliver us.


By the mystery of thy holy Incarnation; by thy holy Nativity and submission to the Law; by thy Baptism, Fasting, and Temptation,

Good Lord, deliver us.


By thine Agony and Bloody Sweat; by thy Cross and Passion; by thy precious Death and Burial; by thy glorious Resurrection and Ascension; and by the Coming of the Holy Ghost,

Good Lord, deliver us.


In all time of our tribulation; in all time of our prosperity; in the hour of death, and in the day of judgment,

Good Lord, deliver us.


We sinners do beseech thee to hear us, O Lord God; and that it may please thee to rule and govern thy holy Church Universal in the right way,

We beseech thee to hear us, good Lord.

We beseech thee to hear us, good Lord.


That it may please thee to inspire us, in our several callings, to do the work which thou givest us to do with singleness of heart as thy servants, and for the common good,

We beseech thee to hear us, good Lord.


That it may please thee to preserve all who are in danger by reason of their labor or their travel,

THE KYRIE


THE COLLECT OF THE DAY

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray.


Almighty God, whose blessed Son was led by the Spirit to be tempted by Satan: Come quickly to help us who are assaulted by many temptations; and, as you know the weaknesses of each of us, let each one find you mighty to save; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever Amen.


THE LITURGY OF THE WORD


THE FIRST LESSON: Genesis 9:8-17


God said to Noah and to his sons with him, “As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you, and with every living creature that is with you, the birds, the domestic animals, and every animal of the earth with you, as many as came out of the ark. I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.” God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth.”.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


PSALM 25:1-9

Ad te, Domine, levavi

1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul; my God, I put my trust in you; * let me not be humiliated, nor let my enemies triumph over me.

2 Let none who look to you be put to shame; * let the treacherous be disappointed in their schemes.

3 Show me your ways, O LORD, * and teach me your paths.

4 Lead me in your truth and teach me, * for you are the God of my salvation; in you have I trusted all the day long.

5 Remember, O LORD, your compassion and love, * for they are from everlasting.

6 Remember not the sins of my youth and my transgressions; * remember me according to your love and for the sake of your goodness, O LORD.

7 Gracious and upright is the LORD; * therefore he teaches sinners in his way.

8 He guides the humble in doing right * and teaches his way to the lowly.

9 All the paths of the LORD are love and faithfulness * to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.


THE SECOND LESSON: 1 PETER 3:18-22


Christ also suffered for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring you to God. He was put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit, in which also he went and made a proclamation to the spirits in prison, who in former times did not obey, when God waited patiently in the days of Noah, during the building of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were saved through water. And baptism, which this prefigured, now saves you-- not as a removal of dirt from the body, but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, with angels, authorities, and powers made subject to him.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


SEQUENCE HYMN: THE GLORY OF THESE FORTY DAYS


THE GOSPEL: MARK 1:9-15


The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark.

Glory to you, Lord Christ.


In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. And a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased.”


And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.

Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news.”


The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.


THE SERMON: The Rev’d Hank Tuell


THE NICENE CREED

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, Eternally begotten of the Father. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.


THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

In this holy season of Lent, we are called to a journey of self-examination, repentance, and prayer following the example of Jesus our Savior. Let us in our prayers offer to God the yearnings of our hearts.


We pray for the whole church, all leaders and ministers, and all the holy people of God; especially Justin the Archbishop of Canterbury, Michael our Presiding Bishop, Matt, Allen and Mary our Bishops, Hank and all members of the Clergy.

We lift our eyes to the hills, O God.

We lift our eyes to the hills, O God.

In you is our help and strength.


We pray for those who put themselves in harm's way and places of danger; those who willingly risk their lives; particularly for those serving in the armed services.

We lift our eyes to the hills, O God.

In you is our help and strength.


We pray for those who hunger, those who thirst, those who cry out for justice, those who live under the threat of terror, and those without a place to lay their head; especially those in Ukraine.

We lift our eyes to the hills, O God.

In you is our help and strength.


We pray for those who are ill, those in pain, those under stress, and those

who are lonely; especially those on our parish prayer list, including Jonathan,

Nancy, Steven, Timothy, Carl, Florence, Brendan, Brian, Joan, Joseph,

Kimberly, Lynn, Michael, Kayden, Diane, Robert, Angelina, Lindsay, John

and Sharon, Marilyn, Jennifer, Christopher, James, Michael, Elisse, Darleene, Tina, Rose, and all those on our prayer list.

people for their work and witness in the world. Unite us in your truth and

love, that we who confess your name may also reflect your glory.

We lift our eyes to the hills, O God.

In you is our help and strength.


We pray in this season of Lent for those who prepare for baptism, confirmation and renewal, and we pray that we all might be given the grace and strength to repent and grow closer to you, O God.

We lift our eyes to the hills, O God.

In you is our help and strength.


We pray for those who have died and all who have entered into the land of eternal Light and your abiding peace.

We lift our eyes to the hills, O God.

In you is our help and strength.


CONCLUDING COLLECT

Hear these and all the longings of our hearts O God, whose reign is not distant but breaking in among us: give us time and space to find a new identity, to let go of control and walk the pilgrim way; through Jesus Christ, the good news of salvation. Amen.


THE PEACE

The peace of the Lord be always with you. And also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.


THE ANNOUNCEMENTS


THE OFFERTORY HYMN: O LOVE, HOW DEEP, HOW BROAD, HOW HIGH


THE GREAT THANKSGIVING - B


The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give him thanks and praise.


It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to

you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.


Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with

all the company of heaven, who forever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of

your Name:


Holy, holy, holy, Lord

God of power and might.

Heaven and Earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest. Hosanna in the highest

Blessed is He who come in the name of the Lord

Hosanna in the highest. Hosanna in the highest,.


Holy and gracious Father: In your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all.


He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.


On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread; and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat: This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.”

After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said, “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.”


Therefore, we proclaim the mystery of faith:

Christ has died.

Christ is risen.

Christ will come again.


We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.

Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.


All this we ask through your Son Jesus Christ. By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and forever.
