Sixteenth Sunday after Trinity


Protecting the Church, within and without.

Design for Worship:

The Design for Worship teaches us that we, the people of Christ's Church, are weak, spiritually and physically, yet God protects and defends His Church from internal corruption and external attack, even to the personal level.

Epistle Lesson:

Ephesians 3: 13-21

Gospel Lesson:

Luke 7: 11-17

Revised Collect:

Merciful Lord, our Guardian, we appeal continually to Your pity to protect Your Church from inward corruption and outward attack, by cleansing and defending it, so that it may be preserved for all time by your help and goodness.

Original Collect:

O Lord, we beseech thee, let thy continual pity cleanse and defend thy Church; and, because it cannot continue in safety without thy succor, preserve it evermore by thy help and goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
