This is the Sunday we mark as Remembrance Sunday.
St. George’s families, this week our resources are a Family Page and three different activity pages for different ages based on the Gospel reading for this Sunday. Please sign up for our weekly emails to get the links. The worship I have prepared is not focused on the scripture passage, so you will have to carry the ball a little for me this week!
For hymn lovers, this week I have suggested a beautiful version of “O Day of Peace” you can listen to or sing along with.
The reading for this Sunday is Matthew 25:1-13:
Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise replied, ‘No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I do not know you.’ Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.1
Prayers and Message
And here is the link to the video of this Sunday’s Prayers and Message:
The traditional hymn for listening or singing is “For the Healing of the Nations.”
And the contemporary song is a rocking version of “We Remember.”
Thank you so much for your continued support of the ministry and mission of St. George’s.
Be Well and God Bless.
The Rev’d Canon Rob Park
