Sunday School
Sunday School is offered for all ages between our 9:00
am and 11:00 am worship services from 10:10 am to
10:55 am. The classes are designed to be age appropriate so that we all can deepen our faith in Jesus Christ.
Holy Eucharist/Communion
Holy Eucharist, also known as Communion, is open
to all of the baptized of all denominations. The
Episcopal Church has an open table and you are
invited to participate as you feel comfortable. The
ushers will direct you forward to receive the sacrament. To receive the Eucharist, place your right
palm over your left and you will be given the Bread;
the Wine will be offered and you may guide the chalice
to your lips. If you prefer not to drink from it, leave the
wafer on your palm and the chalice bearer will dip it
in the cup and place it in your mouth. If you wish to
receive a Blessing in lieu of the Elements, simply cross
your arms over your chest.
Children and Nursery Care
We love children and we invite them to worship with
us. We also offer a professionally staffed nursery for all
children up through 7 years old from 8:45am to 12:30pm.
The nursery is located in the Education Building past the
reception desk.
Cell Phones
Please, turn your cell phones off so that they do not
disturb you or those around you during worship.
Gluten Free communion wafers are available at the Lectern Communion Station.
Gluten Free emblems are available in the
Narthex so that you can identify yourself
to the person administering communion at
that station. These wafers are made from
rice and soy.
Pastoral Care
Hospitals no longer notify churches of your admission. If you have not received a visit or phone call
from the clergy within 24 hours of your hospitalization, it is likely we do not know you are in the hospital.
Please help us minister to you by calling the church
and letting us know.
Today’s Music
Liturgy We Live
Today’s organ prelude is the quietly intense “Choral
Dorien” by Jehan Alain(1911-1940). Alain was born
in Saint-Germain-en-Laye in the western suburbs of
Paris, into a family of musicians. His father, Albert
Alain (1880–1971) was an enthusiastic organist, composer and organ-builder who had studied with Alexandre Guilmant and Louis Vierne. His younger brother
was the composer, organist and pianist Olivier Alain
(1918–1994), his youngest sister the organist MarieClaire Alain (1926–2013). Between 1927 and 1939,
he attended the Paris Conservatoire. Alain was posthumously awarded the Croix de Guerre for his bravery
in WWII and was buried, by the Germans, with full
military honours. The postlude is the Plein Jeu of the
Second Suite by French composer Louis-Nicolas Clerambault (1676-1749). Like Alain, Clérambault came
from a musical family (his father and two of his sons
were also musicians). Clérambault became the organist at the church of the Grands-Augustins and entered
the service of Madame de Maintenon. After the death
of Louis XIV, he became organist at the church of
Saint-Sulpice and the royal house of Saint-Cyr.
by Dr. Gil Haas
In imperial Roman processions, the positions closer
to the emperor at the procession’s conclusion were
places of honor. Our Christian processions mimic this
scenario. A verger, with their verge, “clears the way”...
making a “path” through the congregation. The thurifer follows, employing incense to “cleanse” ceremoniously the building in which the procession proceeds.
The processional cross, or crucifix (in Anglo-Catholic
parishes), is next, lit by honorific torches emphasizing Christ’s importance. A single processional cross is
the norm in most Anglican processions. If a layperson
carries the Gospel book, that person follows next. If a
clergy carries the book, that clergy maintains their usual position. Banners are processed before the person(s)
that they honor. If the parish is honored with its banner, the banner precedes the choir, who process next.
Laypersons in the service follow the choir. A second,
smaller cross can be carried before the clergy processing in order of precedence: assisting priests, subdeacon
(replaced at St. Paul’s by a layperson who reads the
epistle), deacon, rector/dean (or celebrant if the bishop
is absent), bishop’s cross, bishop’s banner, bishop’s
chaplain (carrying the bishop’s crosier if the bishop
chooses not to), and finally, the bishop. Requested by
Stephanie Toney
The Parish Choir sings a lovely setting of St. Richard
of Chichester’s Prayer, “Day By Day.” The music is
by Martin How (b. 1931), a British composer and organist. He was educated at Repton School where he
was a Music Scholar. Awarded an Organ Scholarship
at Clare College, Cambridge, where he read Music
and Theology. In this post he had responsibility for the
Chapel Choir of men and boys, and Choral Society. He
has since worked extensively on behlad of the Royal
School of Church Music.
Before the Service
Please keep a moment of silence to prepare your
hearts and minds for worship and if you so desire
you may use the following prayer:
Gracious Father, we pray for your holy catholic
Church. Fill it with all truth, in all truth with all peace.
Where it is corrupt, purify it; where it is in error, direct it; where in any thing it is amiss, reform it. Where
it is right, strengthen it; where it is in want, provide
for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the sake of
Jesus Christ your Son our Savior. Amen.

Blessings abound where-e’er he reigns:
the prisoners leap to lose their chains,
the weary find eternal rest,
and all who suffer want are blest.
Trumpet and pipes, loud clashing cymbals,
sing to the Lord a new song!
Harp, lute, and lyre, loud humming cellos,
sing to the Lord a new song!
Let every creature rise and bring
peculiar honors to our King;

`The LORD’; and I will be gracious to whom I will be
gracious, and will show mercy on whom I will show
mercy. But,” he said, “you cannot see my face; for no
one shall see me and live.” And the LORD continued,
“See, there is a place by me where you shall stand on
the rock; and while my glory passes by I will put you
in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my
hand until I have passed by; then I will take away my
hand, and you shall see my back; but my face shall
not be seen.”
BCP 234
Almighty and everlasting God, in Christ you have
revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the
works of your mercy, that your Church throughout the
world may persevere with steadfast faith in the confession of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, for ever and ever. Amen.
The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Hymnal 377, verses 1-4
All people that on earth do dwell,
sing to the Lord with cheerful voice:
him serve with mirth, his praise forth tell,
come ye before him and rejoice.
Moses said to the LORD, “See, you have said to me,
`Bring up this people’; but you have not let me know
whom you will send with me. Yet you have said, `I
know you by name, and you have also found favor
in my sight.’ Now if I have found favor in your sight,
show me your ways, so that I may know you and find
favor in your sight. Consider too that this nation is
your people.” He said, “My presence will go with you,
and I will give you rest.” And he said to him, “If your
presence will not go, do not carry us up from here. For
how shall it be known that I have found favor in your
sight, I and your people, unless you go with us? In this
way, we shall be distinct, I and your people, from every people on the face of the earth.” The LORD said to
Moses, “I will do the very thing that you have asked;
for you have found favor in my sight, and I know
you by name.” Moses said, “Show me your glory, I
pray.” And he said, “I will make all my goodness pass
before you, and will proclaim before you the name,
Know that the Lord is God indeed;
without our aid he did us make:
we are his folk, he doth us feed,
and for his sheep he doth us take.
O enter then his gates with praise,
approach with joy his courts unto;
praise, laud, and bless his Name always,
for it is seemly so to do.
For why? the Lord our God is good,
his mercy is for ever sure;
his truth at all times firmly stood,
and shall from age to age endure.

Gospel Hymn
1 Thessalonians 1:1-10
A Reading from the First Epistle to the Thessalonians.
Hymnal 705, verses 1-2
As those of old their first fruits brought
of vineyard, flock, and field
to God, the giver of all good,
the source of bounteous yield;
so we today our first fruits bring,
the wealth of this good land,
of farm and market, shop and home,
of mind, and heart, and hand.
Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the
Thessalonians in God the Father and the Lord Jesus
Christ: Grace to you and peace. We always give thanks
to God for all of you and mention you in our prayers,
constantly remembering before our God and Father
your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness
of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters beloved by God, that he has chosen you,
because our message of the gospel came to you not in
word only, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and
with full conviction; just as you know what kind of
persons we proved to be among you for your sake. And
you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for in spite
of persecution you received the word with joy inspired
by the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to
all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia. For the
word of the Lord has sounded forth from you not only
in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place your faith
in God has become known, so that we have no need to
speak about it. For the people of those regions report
about us what kind of welcome we had among you,
and how you turned to God from idols, to serve a living and true God, and to wait for his Son from heaven,
whom he raised from the dead-- Jesus, who rescues us
from the wrath that is coming.
A world in need now summons us
to labor, love, and give;
to make our life an offering
to God that all may live;
the Church of Christ is calling us
to make the dream come true:
a world redeemed by Christ-like love;
all life in Christ made new.
Matthew 22:15-22
W W W The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ
according to Matthew.
Glory to you, Lord Christ.
The Pharisees went and plotted to entrap Jesus in what
he said. So they sent their disciples to him, along with
the Herodians, saying, “Teacher, we know that you are
sincere, and teach the way of God in accordance with
truth, and show deference to no one; for you do not
regard people with partiality. Tell us, then, what you
think. Is it lawful to pay taxes to the emperor, or not?”
But Jesus, aware of their malice, said, “Why are you
putting me to the test, you hypocrites? Show me the
coin used for the tax.” And they brought him a denarius. Then he said to them, “Whose head is this, and
The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
whose title?” They answered, “The emperor’s.” Then
he said to them, “Give therefore to the emperor the
things that are the emperor’s, and to God the things
that are God’s.” When they heard this, they were
amazed; and they left him and went away.

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.
Gospel Hymn
BCP 358
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.
Hymnal 705, verse 3
With gratitude and humble trust
we bring our best to thee
to serve thy cause and share thy love
with all humanity.
O thou who gavest us thyself
in Jesus Christ thy Son,
help us to give ourselves each day
until life’s work is done.

the sermon opening prayer]
Give God the Glory
[After the sermon there will be a moment of
silence for private meditation]

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.
W We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
Let us pray for the church and the world.
Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
In the Lord I’ll be ever thankful,
in the Lord I will rejoice!
Look to God, do not be afraid.
Lift up your voices, the Lord is near;
Lift up your voices, the Lord is near.

[You may stand or kneel if you are able]
[Silence is kept]
Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name. Amen.
Grant, Almighty God, that all who confess your
Name, may be united in your truth, live together in
your love, and reveal your glory in the world; especially for Justin of Canterbury; Katharine, our Presiding Bishop; Edward, our Bishop; and the clergy and
people of the diocese of Oklahoma and our companion diocese of Uruguay.
Guide the people of this land, and of all the nations,
in the ways of justice and peace; that we may honor
one another and serve the common good; especially
for Barack, our President; Mary, our Governor; and
Mick, our Mayor.
Give us all a reverence for the earth as your own creation, that we may use its resources rightly in the service of others and to your honor and glory.
Almighty God have mercy on you, W forgive you all
your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen
you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy
Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen.
Comfort and heal all those who suffer in body, mind,
or spirit.
[Intercessions are offered at this time]

in the joy of your Eternal Kingdom.

Proper Preface BCP 377
For you are the source of light and life, you made us in
your image, and called us to new life in Jesus Christ
our Lord.
Day by day, dear Lord,
of thee three things I pray:
to see thee more clearly,
love thee more dearly,
follow thee more nearly,
day by day.
Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with
Angels and Archangels and with all the company of
heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the
glory of your Name:

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

[Please stand or kneel]
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 for ever. Amen.
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.
The Lord’s Prayer
BCP 364
And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are
bold to say,
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.
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.”

Authority, Justification, and Freedom
Who has authority? Who justifies? How are we free?
The Letter of Paul to the Galatians explores these questions and is one of the most important letters that Paul
wrote in making Christianity a world religion. Come explore how Christ has authority in our lives, how Christ
justifies us and how through Christ we are set free. In
exploring these deep questions we will learn how Jesus
Christ impacts our lives and our faith today and everyday. Led by Dean Lindstrom in Dean Willey Hall.

was a prophet, a teacher or God incarnate. Zealot: the
Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth is a look into the
historical account of Jesus and his works. We will explore interesting but controversial account of the life of
Jesus over four weeks to better understand his words and
deeds by putting them into a religious, political, and social context. Led by Kate Huston in the Board Room.
Please RSVP with the coupon on the back cover.

Parlor Library
Are you in the mood to read a good mystery or adventure story as cooler weather sets in? Check the St.
Paul’s library in the Parlor where we have a large variety of “good reads” by well known authors. Also
find books in all categories: spiritual, self-help, travel,
hobbies, etc. Thank you to all who have donated books
as well as thanks to all who take books to borrow and
return or pass on to others OR simply keep. Since we
want all books to have a chance to be read, books will
remain on the shelves for about 6 months, and then be
donated to the YWCA Women’s Shelter or the Jesus
House to make room for other books now in storage.
