1 st Reading: Isaiah 65:1-9
The Righteousness of God’s Judgement
1 I   was   ready   to   be   sought   out   by   those   who   did   not
ask,   to   be   found   by   those   who   did   not   seek   me.   I
said,   ‘Here   I   am,   here   I   am’,to   a   nation   that   did   not
call on my name.
2   I   held   out   my   hands   all   day   long   to   a   rebellious
people,    who    walk    in    a    way    that    is    not    good,
following their own devices;
3   a   people   who   provoke   me   to   my   face   continually,
sacrificing    in    gardens    and    offering    incense    on
bricks;
4    who    sit    inside    tombs,    and    spend    the    night    in
secret   places;who   eat   swine’s   flesh,   with   broth   of
abominable things in their vessels;
5   who   say,   ‘Keep   to   yourself,   do   not   come   near   me,
for   I   am   too   holy   for   you.’   These   are   a   smoke   in
my nostrils, a fire that burns all day long.
6   See,   it   is   written   before   me:   I   will   not   keep   silent,
but I will repay; I will indeed repay into their laps
7 their    iniquities    and    their    ancestors’    iniquities
together,    says    the    Lord;    because    they    offered
incense   on   the   mountains   and   reviled   me   on   the
hills,   I   will   measure   into   their   laps   full   payment   for
their actions.
8   Thus   says   the   Lord:   As   the   wine   is   found   in   the
cluster,   and   they   say,   ‘Do   not   destroy   it,   for   there   is
a   blessing   in   it’,   so   I   will   do   for   my   servants’   sake,
and not destroy them all.
9   I   will   bring   forth   descendants   from   Jacob,   and
from   Judah   inheritors   of   my   mountains;   my   chosen
shall inherit it, and my servants shall settle there.
Gospel: Luke 8:26-39
Jesus Heals the Gerasene Demoniac
26 Then   they   arrived   at   the   country   of   the   Gerasenes,
which is opposite Galilee.
27 As   he   stepped   out   on   land,   a   man   of   the   city   who
had   demons   met   him.   For   a   long   time   he   had   worn
no   clothes,   and   he   did   not   live   in   a   house   but   in   the
tombs.
28 When   he   saw   Jesus,   he   fell   down   before   him   and
shouted   at   the   top   of   his   voice,   ‘What   have   you   to   do
with   me,   Jesus,   Son   of   the   Most   High   God?   I   beg
you, do not torment me’—
29 for    Jesus    had    commanded    the    unclean    spirit    to
come   out   of   the   man.   (For   many   times   it   had   seized
him;   he   was   kept   under   guard   and   bound   with   chains
and   shackles,   but   he   would   break   the   bonds   and   be
driven by the demon into the wilds.)
30 Jesus   then   asked   him,   ‘What   is   your   name?’   He
said, ‘Legion’; for many demons had entered him.
31 They   begged   him   not   to   order   them   to   go   back
into the abyss.
32 Now   there   on   the   hillside   a   large   herd   of   swine
was   feeding;   and   the   demons   begged   Jesus   to   let
them enter these. So he gave them permission.
33 Then   the   demons   came   out   of   the   man   and   entered
the   swine,   and   the   herd   rushed   down   the   steep   bank
into the lake and was drowned.
34 When    the    swineherds    saw    what    had    happened,
they ran off and told it in the city and in the country.
35 Then   people   came   out   to   see   what   had   happened,
and   when   they   came   to   Jesus,   they   found   the   man
from   whom   the   demons   had   gone   sitting   at   the   feet
of   Jesus,   clothed   and   in   his   right   mind.   And   they
were afraid.
36 Those   who   had   seen   it   told   them   how   the   one   who
had been possessed by demons had been healed.
37 Then   all   the   people   of   the   surrounding   country   of
the   Gerasenes   asked   Jesus   to   leave   them;   for   they
were   seized   with   great   fear.   So   he   got   into   the   boat
and returned.
38 The   man   from   whom   the   demons   had   gone   begged
that   he   might   be   with   him;   but   Jesus   sent   him   away,
saying,
39 ‘Return   to   your   home,   and   declare   how   much   God
has   done   for   you.’   So   he   went   away,   proclaiming
throughout   the   city   how   much   Jesus   had   done   for
him.
Wanted - Can you be that friendly, smiling face to meet and greet visitors and parishioners on Sunday mornings? If so, please speak to any member of the Clergy, a Churchwarden or any member of the PCC. God’s Gang helpers needed. We are looking for volunteers to help with God’s Gang, to be a second adult for safeguarding purposes. You will not be asked to lead the sessions but may need to help the younger children with craft activities. If you are interested, talk to Liz Lee or Wendy King  Underwood. After Service Coffee Cups - We are being encouraged to abandon the disposable polystyrene cups that we use in church in favour of recyclable ones; unfortunately, recyclable cups are four times more than polystyrene ones. We still have a few months’ supply of the polystyrene ones and propose to continue their use until our supply is exhausted. However, as an alternative to using polystyrene cups, we would encourage you to bring your own cup which can then be filled with your choice of tea, coffee or juice. Godmanchester Food Bank - Donations are urgently needed so any food item would be greatly appreciated The Pew Sheet is available to download from the website on Saturdays. The AGM, PCC and Fabric Committee Minutes are also available on the website. www.stmaryshoughtonwyton.org.uk
