Order of Service for the Ministry of the Word Please remember to observe the Social Distancing Guidelines and Church protocols. Thank you! Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.    Philippians 1:2 Let us pray: Opening Prayer – The service is introduced to the media. Welcome to you this morning as you join us in this act of worship here at St. John’s Episcopal Church in the Diocese of the Virgin Islands. Today is the 15th Sunday after Pentecost, the Readings are for Proper 19A. Tomorrow we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Cross as we will remember all those churches dedicated to the Holy Cross of Jesus. Today’s Radio Broadcast is sponsored by ….. Our service will now continue with the Introit hymn, TH 494 Crown Him with many crowns. A hymn, psalm, or anthem may be sung. The Introit Hymn - TH 494 Crown Him with many crowns Crown Him with many crowns, the Lamb upon His throne. Hark! How the heavenly anthem drowns all music but its own. Awake, my soul, and sing of Him who died for thee, And hail Him as thy matchless King through all eternity. Crown Him the Son of God, before the worlds began, And ye who tread where He hath trod, crown Him the Son of Man; Who every grief hath known that wrings the human breast, And takes and bears them for His own, that all in Him may rest. Crown Him the Lord of life, who triumphed over the grave, And rose victorious in the strife for those He came to save. His glories now we sing, who died, and rose on high, Who died eternal life to bring, and lives that death may die. Crown Him the Lord of lords, who over all doth reign, Who once on earth, the incarnate Word, for ransomed sinners slain, Now lives in realms of light, where saints with angels sing Their songs before Him day and night, their God, Redeemer, King. Crown Him the Lord of Heaven, enthroned in worlds above, Crown Him the King to Whom is given the wondrous name of Love. Crown Him with many crowns, as thrones before Him fall; Crown Him, ye kings, with many crowns, for He is King of all. The Celebrant may read one of the following sentences If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. But if we confess our sins, God, who is faithful and just, will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness ….  1 John 1:8, 9 The Deacon or Celebrant then says Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor. Silence may be kept. Minister and People say. God of all mercy, we confess that we have sinned against you, opposing your will in our lives. We have denied your goodness in each other, in ourselves, and in the world you have created. We repent of the evil that enslaves us, the evil we have done, and the evil done on our behalf. Forgive, restore, and strengthen us through our Savior Jesus Christ, that we may abide in your love and serve only your will. Amen. The Bishop when present, or the Priest, stands and says Almighty God have mercy on you/us, forgive you/us all your/our sins through the grace of Jesus Christ, strengthen you/us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you/us in eternal life. Amen. A deacon or lay person using the preceding form substitutes "us" for "you" and "our" for "your." The Gloria in Excelsis Glory to God in the highest, and peace to his people on earth. Lord God, heavenly King, almighty God and Father, we worship you, we give you thanks, we praise you for your glory. Lord Jesus Christ, only Son of the Father, Lord God, Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world: have mercy on us; you are seated at the right hand of the Father: receive our prayer. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen. The Collect of the Day The Celebrant says to the people The Lord be with you.
