Welcome to your Sunday morning worship from St. George’s.
I have some suggested hymns or a song you can sing along with before and/or after if you choose.
If you would like an opening hymn, here is a wonderful version of “In Christ There Is No East or West.”
Here is our Gospel reading for this morning. It is Matthew 15:21-28.
Jesus left that place and went away to the district of Tyre and Sidon. Just then a Canaanite woman from that region came out and started shouting, “Have mercy on me, Lord, Son of David; my daughter is tormented by a demon.” But he did not answer her at all. And his disciples came and urged him, saying, “Send her away, for she keeps shouting after us.” He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” He answered, “It is not fair to take the children’s food and throw it to the dogs.” She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” Then Jesus answered her, “Woman, great is your faith! Let it be done for you as you wish.” And her daughter was healed instantly.1
Here is your Sunday prayers and Message.
Here are some options for a closing hymn or a Contemporary song to sing along with.
On the traditional side here is “Thy Hand, O God, has guided”
On the more modern end of the scale here is “Blessed Be Your Name”
I hope you have a blessed week.
Be Well and God Bless.
The Rev’d Canon Rob Park
