DO WE HAVE YOUR LATEST CONTACT INFO?

We are working on updating our Parish List address changes, please let the church office know either by email at stjohns@stjohnschurchph.ca by using the Information attached to the weekly Sunday leaflet (see below, right) or call the Parish Office at 905-885-2171.


We have a small number of St. John’s members who cannot get to the services or events because they have no means of transport. One of our objectives, arising out of the visioning process we went through, was to develop an organization to assist those members. First step is to find some people willing to offer drives, on occasion, to someone who needs help to get to church. If you feel that you are in a position to help out in this way, please talk to Keith Pickett at 905-885-2803 or email

FROM SUNDAY BULLETIN October 14, 2018
Anglican Cycle of Prayers
  • FROM THE WIDER CHURCH
    AND THE WORLD


    Throughout the Anglican Communion on this Sunday we pray for the Church of the Province of West Africa and the Most Rev’d Dr Daniel Sarfo its Primate and Metropolitan.

    The Church of the Province of West Africa covers 17 dioceses in eight countries of West Africa, specifically in Cameroon, Cape Verde, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Senegal and Sierra Leone. The primary mission of the province is to witness for Jesus Christ through its life and work in all aspects of the lives of people in the various countries, in order to achieve the abundant and holistic life envisaged in the gospel. The method of achieving this mission is evangelism through teaching, preaching and other pastoral services.

    The chief objective is to bring into submission to Jesus Christ the members of the church and those with whom they come into contact. That includes proclamation of the gospel, living a common life, and striving to create a just and fair society. In pursuing this goal the church carries out a variety of programmes that could be classified as evangelistic, educational, agricultural, medical and pastoral. For the past fifteen years the church in the sub-region existed in an atmosphere of tension, civil strife and armed conflict which made growth a slow process. But things are improving and even Sierra Leone and Liberia, the two most badly war-torn countries, are beginning to enjoy some peace.

  • Anglican Cycle of PrayersTHE ANGLICAN CYCLE OF PRAYER also provides a calendar of daily resources to support the Anglican and Episcopalian family of churches in over 165 countries throughout the world - it is published on the website of the worldwide Anglican Communion Office in London, UK - see here »
  • Sunday BulletinON THE COVER (October 21) Abraham and Melchizedek, Deric Bouts (c. 1464-1467)

    Melchizedek (Hebrew: מַלְכִּי־צֶדֶֿק malkī-ṣeḏeq, "king of righteousness”) was the king of Salem and priest of El Elyon (often translated as "God most high") mentioned in the 14th chapter of the Book of Genesis. He brings out bread and wine and blesses Abram and El Elyon.

    In Christianity, according to the Epistle to the Hebrews, Jesus Christ is identified as "a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek", and so Jesus assumes the role of High Priest once and for all.

    Reference between the Messiah and Melchizedek appears in a number of biblical verses: Genesis 14:18-20; Psalm 110:1-7 Matthew 22:44; 26:26-28 Luke 22:19; Mark 14:22 John 6:53 Acts 2:34 I Corinthians 11:23-25 Hebrews 4:14-15; 5:6; 5:10; 6:19-20; 7:1-21. Revelation 1:6. The association with Christ is made explicit by the author of the Epistle to the Hebrews, where Melchizedek the "king of righteousness" and "king of peace" is explicitly associated with the eternal priesthood of the Son of God. The Christological interpretation of this Old Testament character being a prefiguration or prototype of the Christ has varied between Christian denominations.

PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER
… The Bible contains these words, reminding us to pray for one another not only in difficult times but as a regular part of our spiritual practices. On Sunday mornings, we have begun praying our way through the Parish List, as a way to hold one another up before God in prayer and remind ourselves that we are connected to one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Sunday
The Pharisees asked Jesus, “Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?” Jesus responded, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”

Anglicans practically have these words of Jesus in our DNA, they form what we call the “Summary of the Law,” and are read at the beginning of every celebration of Holy Communion according to the Book of Common Prayer. They might seem simple, but following these commandments is the work of a lifetime. It is appropriate that we hear them so often in our worship, as they are the very ground of the Christian life.

NOTICES

LET US PRAY! Our Parish has formed a Prayer Chain
An Intercessory Prayer Chain is a group of people that has been called to the ministry of praying for others on an ongoing basis. They have committed themselves to pray regularly, confidentially and individually, for the people and concerns that are requested of them. They form part of a chain through which God's love flows, and they circulate prayer requests and results among themselves via a communications chain. Anyone who wishes to hold up a person in prayer must have that persons’ permission to do so. Your contact for prayer requests is Jackie Brimblecombe at: 905-885- 0218. Praying for others is a privilege and a gift to each one held up in prayer. I encourage everyone to take full advantage of this new ministry in our midst.- Deacon Sheila Archer
