The Lord be with you.

Amen.


The Liturgy of the Word


The First Lesson: Job 38: 1-11

The Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind:


"Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me.


"Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell me, if you have understanding. Who determined its measurements—surely you know! Or who stretched the line upon it? On what were its bases sunk, or who laid its cornerstone when the morning stars sang together and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?


"Or who shut in the sea with doors when it burst out from the womb?—when I made the clouds its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band, and prescribed bounds for it, and set bars and doors, and said, 'Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stopped'?"


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


The Psalm: Confitemini Domino Psalm 107:1-3, 23-32

1 Give thanks to the Lord, for | he is | good, * and his | mercy en-|dures for | ever.


2 Let all those whom the Lord has re- | deemed pro- | claim *

that he redeemed them | from the | hand of the | foe.


3 He gathered them | out of the | lands; *

from the east and from the west, from the | north and | from the | south.


23 Some went down to the | sea in | ships * and | plied their | trade in deep | waters;


24 They beheld the | works of the | Lord * and his | wonders | in the | deep.


25 Then he spoke, and a stormy | wind a- | rose, * which tossed | high the | waves of the | sea.


26 They mounted up to the heavens and fell | back to the | depths; *

their hearts | melted be- | cause of their | peril.


27 They reeled and | staggered like | drunkards * and | were at | their wits' | end.


28 Then they cried to the | Lord in their | trouble, *

and he delivered | them from | their dis- | tress.


29 He stilled the | storm to a | whisper * and | quieted the | waves of the | sea.


30 Then were they glad be- | cause of the | calm, *

and he brought them to the | harbour | they were | bound for.


31 Let them give thanks to the | Lord for his |mercy *

and the | wonders he | does for his | children.


32 Let them exalt him in the congre- | gation of the | people *

and praise him in the | council | of the | elders.


The Second Lesson: 2 Corinthians 6: 1-13

As we work together with Christ, we urge you also not to accept the grace of God in vain. For he says,


“At an acceptable time I have listened to you, and on a day of salvation I have helped you.”


See, now is the acceptable time; see, now is the day of salvation! We are putting no obstacle in anyone's way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God, we have commended ourselves in every way: through great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labours, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the holiness of spirit, genuine love, truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; in honour and dishonour, in ill repute and good repute. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; as unknown, and yet are well known; as dying, and see-- we are alive; as punished, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing everything.


We have spoken frankly to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open to you. There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours. In return-- I speak as to children-- open wide your hearts also.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The Gospel Mark 4: 35-41

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

Glory to you, Lord Christ.


When evening had come, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go across to the other side.” And leaving the crowd behind, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. Other boats were with him. A great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that the boat was already being swamped. But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion; and they woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?” He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”


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.
