4:00 pm - Saint Thomas Church
The Gospel reading on this Third Sunday in Lent for Year B is John 2:13-22, wherein we have Christ throwing the merchants out of the temple, after which he confounds the religious authorities:. Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
Here are some sermons from previous years that you might find helpful as you make your way through this third week in Lent:Sanctuary (2009) by Fr Mead
Cleaning the Temple Within (2006) by Fr Mead
Almighty God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves: Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Today at Choral Evensong, Fr Spurlock preaches Sermon 7 of our 15-part series on prayer called "Lord, Teach Us to Pray." The sermon today is on "Give us this day our daily bread" from the Lord's Prayer. See the complete list of sermons in the series here.
About Choral Evensong: Based on the services held daily in the medieval Church, Choral Evensong as arranged in the Book of Common Prayer of the Anglican Church has been sung regularly since the Sixteenth Century. Many people who are new to worship at Saint Thomas prefer to come to Choral Evensong because it is relatively contemplative. The service includes readings (just as would occur at Evening Prayer) and prayers led by a priest. An anthem as well as a setting of the Magnificat and the Nunc dimittis are sung by the choir. Read more about Choral Evensong here, or view the Choral Evensong Service Card posted to the bottom of this page, where links to the webcast will be posted during and after the service.
►There is no Mass following Choral Evensong on Sundays. If you would like to make your Holy Communion for the week, consider attending one of the morning Eucharists, or else at any of the other sixteen masses at Saint Thomas later this week.
