Psalm 104:25-35,37Benedic, anima mea All sing                                                                          BCP p. 736

25      O Lord, how manifold are your / works! *

in wisdom you have made them all;
the earth is full / of your creatures.

   26       Yonder is the great and wide sea
with its living things too many to / number, *

creatures / both small and great.

   27       There move the ships, and there is that Le/viathan, *

which you have made / for the sport of it.

   28       All of them look to / you *

to give them their food / in due season.

   29       You give it to them; they / gather it; *

you open your hand,
and they are / filled with good things.

   30       You hide your face, and they are / terrified; *

you take away their breath,
and they die and re/turn to their dust.

   31       You send forth your Spirit, and they are / created; *

and so you renew the / face of the earth.

   32       May the glory of the Lord endure for / ever; *

may the Lord re/joice in all his works.

   33       He looks at the earth and it / trembles; *

he touches the / mountains and they smoke.

   34       I will sing to the Lord as long as I / live; *

I will praise my God while I / have my being.

   35       May these words of mine / please him; *

I will rejoice in the Lord. / Hallelujah!

Alleluia and Verse Please stand.    Plainsong, Tone VII

The Holy Gospel John 14:8-17                    BCP p. 357

Minister         The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
                      according to John.
People           Glory to you, Lord Christ.

Philip said to Jesus, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves. “Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it. “If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.”

Minister         The Gospel of the Lord.
People           Praise to you, Lord Christ.

The Sermon Silence is kept after the sermon.     BCP p. 358

The Nicene CreedSaid together, all standing    BCP p. 358

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 Please kneel or stand. BCP p. 387

Let us offer our prayers to God for the world and for one another.

Father, we pray for your holy catholic Church;
That we all may be one.

Grant that every member of the Church may truly and humbly serve you;
That your Name may be glorified by all people.

We pray for … all bishops, priests, and deacons;
That they may be faithful ministers of your Word and Sacraments.

We pray for …
all who govern and hold authority in the nations of the world;
That there may be justice and peace on the earth.

Give us grace to do your will in all that we undertake;
That our works may find favor in your sight.

We pray for … the sick and shut-in, especially those we now name.

You are invited to add your own prayers, aloud or silently.

Have compassion on those who suffer from any grief or trouble;
That they may be delivered from their distress.

Give to the departed eternal rest;
Let light perpetual shine upon them.

We pray for those who have died, especially those we now name.

You are invited to add your own prayers, aloud or silently.

We praise you for your saints who have entered into joy;
May we also come to share in your heavenly kingdom.

Let us pray for … our own needs and those of others.

You are invited to offer prayers and intercessions, aloud or silently.

The Celebrant offers a concluding prayer.

Anthem Lift up your heads, O ye gates      John Amner

Lift up your heads, O ye gates, and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors: and the King of glory shall come in. Who is the King of glory: it is the Lord strong and mighty, even the Lord mighty in battle. Who is the King of glory: even the Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.

Words: Psalm 24: 7,8,10

The Great Thanksgiving Please stand

Adapted from “Eucharistic Prayer for Pentecost,” Janet Morley, All Desires Known, Third Edition, Harrisburg, Penn.: Morehouse, 2006, pp. 72-3.

Celebrant      The Lord be with you.
People           And also with you.
Celebrant      Lift up your hearts.
People           We lift them to the Lord.
Celebrant      Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
People           It is right to give our thanks and praise.

The Celebrant recalls God’s creation and blessing, saying

With every nameless and unremembered prophet who heard your call and inspired her people; we praise you, singing:

Sanctus, S 125                                           Richard Proulx

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is our brother Jesus, who comes behind the doors we have closed, and breathes on our fear his fearful peace; who, on the night that he was betrayed, took bread, gave thanks, broke it, and said: “This is my body, which is for you. Do this to remember me.”

In the same way the cup, after supper, saying: “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this whenever you drink it, to remember me.”

Therefore, according to Jesus’ command,

We remember Christ’s death;
we proclaim Christ’s resurrection;
we await Christ’s coming in glory.

The Celebrant calls on the Holy Spirit to descend on us and on our gifts, and offers prayer in anticipation of God’s festival banquet.

Through Christ and with Christ and in Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, to you be honor, glory, and praise, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Lord’s Prayer                                           BCP p. 364

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Breaking of the Bread, S 167                BCP p. 364

The Holy Communion                                   BCP p. 365

Please form a single-file line in the center aisle, maintaining social distance, and approach the priest wearing a mask. You can remove your mask and eat the bread once you’ve walked away from others. All are welcome to receive Holy Communion, including visitors and small children. Gluten-free hosts are available on request. Those not wishing to receive Communion are invited to receive a blessing: Simply cross your arms over your chest to indicate your preference.

Anthem O Holy Spirit, Lord of grace   Christopher Tye

O Holy Spirit, Lord of grace, Eternal source of love,
Inflame, we pray, our inmost hearts With fire from heav’n above.
As thou dost join with holiest bonds The Father and the son,
So fill us all with mutual love, And knit our hearts in one.

Words: Charles Coffin 1676-1749

Postcommunion Prayer Please stand or kneel. BCP p. 365

God of abundance, you have fed us with the bread of life and cup of salvation; you have united us with Christ and one another; and you have made us one with all your people in heaven and on earth. Now send us forth in the power of your Spirit, that we may proclaim your redeeming love to the world and continue for ever in the risen life of Christ our Savior. Amen.

The Blessing of the People                           BCP p. 366

May Almighty God, who enlightened the minds of the disciples by pouring out upon them the Holy Spirit, make you rich with God’s blessing, that you may abound more and more in that Spirit for ever. Amen.

May God, who sent the Holy Spirit as a flame of fire that rested upon the heads of the disciples, burn out all evil from your hearts, and make them shine with the pure light of God’s presence. Amen.

May God, who by the Holy Spirit caused those of many tongues to proclaim Jesus as Lord, strengthen your faith and send you out to bear witness to God in word and deed. Amen.

And the blessing of God Almighty, the holy and undivided Trinity, be upon you and remain with you for ever. Amen.
