Collect for The Seventeenth Sunday After Trinity
Almighty God,
you have made us for yourself,
and our hearts are restless till they find their rest in you:
pour your love into our hearts and draw us to yourself,
and so bring us at last to your heavenly city
where we shall see you face to face;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen

Post Communion Prayer for The Seventeenth Sunday After Trinity
Lord, we pray that your grace
may always precede and follow us,
and make us continually to be given to all good works;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

 

The Readings:    James 5. 13-end

Gospel: Mark 9 38 - end
John said to him, ‘Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and
we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.’ But Jesus said, ‘Do not stop
him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon
afterwards to speak evil of me. Whoever is not against us is for us. For truly I tell
you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of
Christ will by no means lose the reward.


‘If any of you put a stumbling-block before one of these little ones who believe in
me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were hung around your neck and
you were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is
better for you to enter life maimed than to have two hands and to go to hell, to
the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better
for you to enter life lame than to have two feet and to be thrown into hell. And if
your eye causes you to stumble, tear it out; it is better for you to enter the
kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and to be thrown into hell,
where their worm never dies, and the fire is never quenched.


‘For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good; but if salt has lost its saltiness, how can you season it?  Have salt in yourselves and be at peace with one another
