Audio Service for Aug 09

 Opening:

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

and the love of God,

 and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,

be with you all.

And also with you

Reading: Matthew 14:22-33

14:22 Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.

14:23 And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone,

14:24 but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them.

14:25 And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea.

14:26 But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear.

14:27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.”

14:28 Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”

14:29 He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus.

14:30 But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”

14:31 Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

14:32 When they got into the boat, the wind ceased.

14:33 And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

Fear  Matthew 14:22-36

In the story of creation found in the Book of Genesis, we read where Adam and Eve had partaken of the forbidden fruit, something which had been specifically denied them. Knowing that God is searching for them, they attempt to hide. It is a scene perhaps reminiscent of many of our childhoods when we had done something that we were not supposed to and we literally hid from our searching parents. Finally God finds them, as we know that God will. God asks them why they are hiding. Do you remember the response: “Because, I was afraid.”

This story reminds us that  To be human is to experience fear.

====

 In a Peanuts cartoon strip Charlie Brown goes to Lucy for a nickels worth of psychiatric help. She proceeds to pinpoint his particular fear. Perhaps, she says, you have hypengyophobia, which is the fear of responsibility. Charlie Brown says no. Well, perhaps you have ailurophobia, which is the fear of cats. No. Well, maybe you have climacophobia, which is the fear of staircases. No. Exasperated, Lucy says well, maybe you have pantophobia, which is the fear of everything. Yes, says Charles, that is the one!

Sometimes we feel like we are afraid of everything.

But perhaps the most surprising fear of many people, and one that we do not like to address is the the fear that God is not really on our side. It is the fear that God will leave us. It is the fear that in the midst of the storm we will be on our own.

It is not a new idea. One of the great fears of the ancient people was that God would fall asleep. The psalm writer took great comfort in the fact that the God of Israel neither slumbered nor slept.

Over and over again the message of the Bible is fear not. When Abram took his family to the Promised Land he feared that he was turning his back on everything he knew, his security for the unknown. God spoke to him: Fear not Abram, I am your shield and your reward will be great.

When the angel of the Lord came to Mary and said that she would bear a child, she trembled with fear. What would become of her? Said the angel: Fear not Mary, for you have found favor with God.

Simon Peter is out in the boat crossing the lake of Galilee after a long day with the crowds. Now he is stepping out of the boat into the storm trying to imitate his Master walking on the water. He’s successful for a moment but then Fear rises and his body sinks.

Over and over again the message of the Bible is clear: Fear not, fear not.

I can see the other disciples in fear of the storm, in fear of the ghost walking on the water, ….Peter, you can’t do that. We don’t know who that is out on the water. Maybe it’s a hallucination.

But Peter does. I don’t know for how long but Peter walks on the water toward Jesus. Peter said Lord if it is you, you can make me to walk on the water with you.

Peter knows that the Lord can sustain us. Even in the midst of the storm, when there is nothing but fear. God will take care of us. But faith is a risk taking enterprise. It does not come in a perfect package. We cab be caught between faith and doubt. Peter gets caught between Christ and the crests of the waves. He doubts his walk. He fears the storm. And he falls beneath the waves. This is a great tale of what the church can accomplish if we put our faith in Christ .

But here’s the good news. If we sink, if we take our gaze off of Christ, if waves seem destined to engulf us …we can call on our our friend our Lord and his grace will pull us through.

Know this: even as the storm rages around us, Jesus is saying, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.” And in time the storm will pass. And Jesus will still be with us all.

=

It is telling that when Peter steps out onto the lake, when he walks on the water, becomes  terrified, starts to sink, Jesus later asks Peter why he doubted. It was fear. Fear crept in and doubt began to rise. Peter began to sink.

It’s the story of our life in a way.  In the boat we are safe but we on occasion are willing to brave the storm, to walk on water,to do the impossible through our faith. When we are being brave,  we suddenly realize the wind is in our face,  the storm is raging, it causes fear, doubt creeps.

In life, there are storms but God is with us. That is our great hope. We can lean back, rest,  in the arms of an ever loving faithful understanding  God.

Hymn:

I, the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save
I who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night
I will go, Lord
If You lead me
I will hold Your people in my heart

I, the Lord of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame
I will set a feast for them
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide
‘Til their hearts be…

 

Our Creed: All together.

We believe in one God,

the Father, the Almighty,

maker of heaven and earth,

of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

eternally begotten of the Father,

God from God, Light from Light,

true God from true God,

begotten, not made,

of one being with the Father.

Through him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation

he came down from heaven:

by the power of the Holy Spirit

he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,

and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified

under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again

in accordance with the scriptures;

he ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory

to judge the living and the dead,

and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,

the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father.

With the Father and the Son

he is worshipped and glorified.

He has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic

and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism

for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,

and the life of the world to come. Amen

Our Prayers

O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you

is eternal life, to serve you is perfect freedom. Defend us your

servants from the assaults of our enemies, that we may trust in

your defence, and not fear the power of any adversaries;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

As our Savior taught us, let us pray,

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever. Amen.

Closing:

Glory to God,

All whose power, working in us,

can do infinitely more

than we can ask or imagine.

Glory to God from generation to generation,

in the Church and in Christ Jesus,

for ever and ever. Amen.

Our Parting Blessing Song:

May God’s blessing surround you each day

As you trust Him and walk in His way

May His presence within guard and keep you from sin,

Go in peace, go in joy, go in love.

In the past Epiphany has taken a break for the month of August, so the Flowers in the sanctuary program sat idle. This year with the Pandemic all around us we decided to honour leaders from our past. We start off this new venture by honouring Rev Mary Wood. Rev Mary holds a special place in  my wife’s heart and mine too – as she was the one who led us to Epiphany. Rev Mary served at Epiphany for over 10 years as the honourary assistant to Rev Teresa. Rev Mary ran a bible study, did pastoral visits, often read the gospel at our Sunday Services and preached on occasion. We remember Rev Mary each week when we sing to the accompaniment of the beautiful baby grand she entrusted to us. Rev Mary is retired and living happily in the town she grew up in, Shawville Quebec.

 

Here is the audio service for August 02

 Opening:

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

and the love of God,

 and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,

be with you all.

And also with you

 

Reading:

Matthew 14:13-21

14:13 Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns.

14:14 When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick.

14:15 When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.”

14:16 Jesus said to them, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.”

14:17 They replied, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.”

14:18 And he said, “Bring them here to me.”

14:19 Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.

14:20 And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full.

14:21 And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Sermon:

Matthew 14:13-21 · Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

A woman took an old painting to an auction house to determine its worth. Previously, the woman had the painting hanging in her kitchen over a hotplate. However, an art evaluator visiting her home recognized the old painting and urged her to have it appraised.

That painting sold  at auction for $26.8 million—

What was the difference?. A trained art appraiser looked at the picture and saw a masterpiece. Two different people looking at the exact same thing –can see something vastly different. It’s all a matter of perspective.

===

Like a first grade teacher in Toronto.

She was teaching math to a class of six-year-olds, including a group of newly arrived refugee children.

The lesson that day was on fractions. The teacher explained the difference between a quarter and a half in fractions. Then she asked the class to write down whether they would prefer to have a quarter of a chocolate bar or a half of a chocolate bar.

The teacher was surprised by the results of that little quiz. As she looked over their papers, she noticed that many of her refugee students wrote that they preferred the quarter of a chocolate bar instead of a half. The teacher was concerned that these students hadn’t understood the lesson. She asked them why they chose a quarter of the chocolate bar rather than a half. One little girl answered, “So that more people could have a piece of chocolate.”

 

Two groups of children looked at the same thing—a chocolate bar—and one group saw a delicious snack while the other saw an opportunity to share something good with others. It’s all in what you see.

That is like our Bible passage for today.

==

Jesus and his disciples had traveled to a remote place. Crowds of people followed them,—to hear Jesus’ wisdom for life

As the day passed, the disciples asked Jesus to send the people away. They were concerned that the people wouldn’t find enough to eat in the surrounding countryside. But Jesus said: “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

“Say, what?” the disciples thought to themselves. Feed this mob of people? No way!   We need to understand that Jesus often led his disciples into challenging situations that seemed too big for them.

Why would he do that? It was because he saw something they didn’t see. He saw the world with God’s eyes. He saw a world in which anything was possible with God.

==

Jesus sees with compassion. Jesus looked at everyone he met with eyes of compassion. Is compassion our default setting when you look at the people around you?

Like us and our food cupboard.  We look around and reach out.  Sending sending donations to our cupboard. 

 

Looking with the eyes of compassion.  We feel with the couple trying to live on only the old age pension.   Or we feel with  the  mom of three young children, suddenly left alone.  But more than that, these folks know the love of Christ, Through your compassionate love. 

Compassion was Jesus’ default setting. Compassion was at the very core of Jesus’ nature. It’s the reason why he walks among us yet.

=

Back to the gospel story:

At this point Jesus looked at this crowd of thousands, but he doesn’t see a crowd.

It has been said, “There is one thing that God cannot do. God cannot see a crowd.”

“There is one thing that God cannot do. God cannot see a crowd.”

Jesus. doesn’t see a crowd. He sees individuals—immensely precious. He saw that they were hurting. And he had compassion on them—

When we operate from a place of compassion, we see others as God sees them. And suddenly, we want to help.

==

NOW.

We may feel that we don’t have enough resources to make a dent in something we feel compassionate about. But it’s amazing what can happen when Jesus gets involved.

The crowd that day numbered close to ten thousand people. And Jesus told his disciples, “You give them something to eat.”

The disciples answered, “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish.”

And Jesus said, “Bring them here to me.”

“Bring them here to me.”

Notice THIS:

Jesus USES what IS at hand to meet the people’s needs.

Jesus uses what you and I have:

We hold up our schedule and say, “Lord, I don’t have time to volunteer in my community.” And Jesus looks at our schedule and says, “Bring it here to me.”

We hold up our hearts and say, “Lord, I don’t have it in my heart to love that person. It’s impossible.” And Jesus looks at our heart and says, “Bring it here to me.”

=

After the disciples gave all their food to Jesus, Jesus took the bread and fish, gave thanks, broke them and gave them back to the disciples. And then the disciples gave them to the people in the crowd.

“They all ate and were satisfied . . .” Everyone—men, women and children—got more than enough to eat. After they ate, the disciples collected what was left.

There were twelve basketfuls of leftovers. Everyone was satisfied. There was more than enough left over.

Seeing the world through Jesus’ eyes means being willing to share what we’ve got—with others.

We don’t have to start with a lot of resources. We start with a lot of compassion and faith. Then God will take our resources to satisfy whatever need has captured our heart. And miraculously we discover we have plenty of resources left over for our own needs.

Like a local dentist who shares that at the start of the virus,  Dentists  donated ppe.  It was  a risk They did not know if there would be more when they needed it.  But they gave it to save people.

=

Jesus is looking at us, just as he looked at his disciples, saying, “They do not need to go away. You give them something …

Whenever you or I see a need however large or small it may be or however small our resources are, we are to bring them to Jesus. Then we will see the miracle Jesus can do with you and I giving our best.

Hymn: 

Let us break bread together on our knees;
let us break bread together on our knees.

When I fall on my knees
with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us drink wine together on our knees;
let us drink wine together on our knees.

When I fall on my knees
with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

Let us praise God together on our knees;
let us praise God together on our knees.

When I fall on my knees
with my face to the rising sun,
O Lord, have mercy on me.

A Message to the Diocese from Bishop Townshend

Dear friends,

Many of us are deeply missing the opportunity to gather as church to worship God.  Premier Ford’s statement today that worship services may resume in many parts of our province has been greeted with both hope and anxiety by many Anglicans.  Ten days ago, together with the provincial House of Bishops, I decided that we would not be making any changes in how we use our church buildings for worship until after Labour Day, September 7.  Nothing has changed: church buildings may be used to offer online worship (no more than five people present to lead the service, following all current church guidelines) and to provide essential ministries such as food sustainability ministries or 12-step programs.  No indoor gatherings for worship will be held in churches in the Diocese of Huron until after Labour Day at the earliest. This will provide us with the opportunity to plan well for September, and to get some summer rest.

Some parishes have been wondering about holding outside worship during this good weather.  That is currently under consideration.  I will have more to say about that in a week or two.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we prioritize the safety of all.

Yours in Christ,
+Todd
Bishop of Huron

Services at Epiphany Cancelled

Hello Everyone.

It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell you that effective immediately all services at Epiphany have been put on hold. We don’t anticipate gathering before the upcoming Easter Weekend. Please keep you and your loved ones safe. Our prayers are with you and everyone affected by the Covid-19 virus pandemic outbreak.

Bishop Todd Townshend

Our newly elected Bishop Todd Townshend visited Epiphany Sunday March 1st. The Bishop praised  our congregation for the fine outreach we do for our local community. He also congratulated Rev Teresa for her 15 years of  outstanding service at the Church of the Epiphany.

One of Bishop Townshend’s official duties was to bless and officially dedicate our new lectern given by Bob, Linda and Christine Aldington in memory of daughter/sister Lisa.

Mirland Brodie Talk – 1981

Happy Birthday Jim

The congregation was blessed today with a surprise Birthday party celebrating one of our longest serving members, Jim Whittington. The surprise was orchestrated by Jim’s wife Dianne who contracted Jeremy Smith to play a surprise concert. Privacy and ethical concerns prevent me from disclosing the age of our Birthday Boy. Suffice to say, he is a younger man than I.
