Saint Simon. James Tissot (circa 1890)

We welcome Reverend Paul Kern to lead us in worship this Sunday.

This Sunday we will be looking at one of Jesus’ apostles – Simon the Zealot.  This is a figure we don’t hear about much, mostly because there is not much said about him in the Scriptures.  What we do know is that he likely joined Jesus with an idea of how God was going to build a kingdom and fix a broken world. Eventually he came to realize that kingdom building was/is far beyond our initial beliefs, and so much more than our zealous passions.

Joshua Passing the River Jordan with the Ark of the Covenant. Benjamin West. 1800

“Now therefore revere the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness; put away the gods that your ancestors served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. Now if you are unwilling to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served in the region beyond the River or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14-15

Nathan before King David. Clement-Pierre Marillier (1740-1808)

This is definitely David. There is the harp of his psalms, there is the throne of his rule. But why is his head in his hands? How could one of such privilege look so miserable? 

That is the prophet Nathan before David. Using a parable, Nathan has held up a mirror to David. And David has seen himself as God and others see him. David is brought to his senses, beginning with an experience of regret and confession. (2 Samuel 12:1-15). As with David, how often with us! 

Have a look at the Order of Service below, and join us either in the sanctuary or by live-stream at https://youtu.be/IM8l5WsY0e0. We welcome Aurora Dokkens back to the organ bench this Sunday morning and Susanne Cliff-Jüngling as cantor.

The Order of Service and announcements can be found below, with the hymns printed out further down the page. The lyrics to the hymns provide some wonderful mediative verse, from the Scottish Psalter of 1650 (O thou my soul, bless God the Lord) to the English poet George Herbert (King of glory, King of peace) to a contemporary Christian with a Canadian connection, Anna Briggs (We lay our broken world in sorrow at your feet).
