Charlie Barton+ Saint James, Monkton, Md.


Officiant: The Lord be with you

People:      AND ALSO WITH YOU

Officiant: Let us pray, using the text of Psalm 46 as our prayer

                And saying together?

Psalm 46

         (Insert text..p649-50  BCP)


Reading      Philippians 4: 5-9


Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near.  Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.


 Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.  Keep on doing the things that you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, and the God of peace will be with you.


The reader says: The Word of the Lord

People:                THANKS BE TO GOD.
