The Collect of the Day

Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking: Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Mark 6:30-34, 53-56

30 The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. 31 And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. 32 And they went away in the boat to a desolate place by themselves. 33 Now many saw them going and recognized them, and they ran there on foot from all the towns and got there ahead of them. 34 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd. And he began to teach them many things.

53 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored to the shore. 54 And when they got out of the boat, the people immediately recognized him 55 and ran about the whole region and began to bring the sick people on their beds to wherever they heard he was. 56 And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.

This Week's Musical Offering

The Church’s One Foundation, one of the most beloved hymns across many denominations, entered the Hymnal in 1871. The text was born out of a pastoral need. Samuel Stone, a curate in Windsor, was concerned that his parishioners should understand basic Christian doctrine, especially as a direct response to some unorthodox teaching at that time which created a schism in the Church of South Africa. This topic is alluded to within the third verse of the text “Though with a scornful wonder men see her sore oppressed, by schisms rent asunder, by heresies distressed.”  It was then that Stone proceeded to author Twelve Hymns on the Twelve Articles of the Apostles’ Creed. The Church’s One Foundation was the ninth hymn and was headed: “Article IX. The holy Catholic Church: the Communion of Saints. ‘He is the Head of the Body, the Church.’” Boldly affirm your faith as we sing the hymn to begin our worship.
