The Collect for Advent

Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness,

and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in

which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last

day, when he shall come again in his glorious Majesty, to judge both the quick

and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who liveth and

reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, one God, now and forever.  Amen.

Leadership, and Godly Men [and Women]: Rahab

Hebrews 11: 31

31By faith the prostitute Rahab, because she welcomed the spies,

was not killed with those who were disobedient.

 

Joshua 2

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Joshua%202;&version=31;

 

Hebrews 1: 1-2

1In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.

 

James 2: 24-26

24You see that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone.

25In the same way, was not even Rahab the prostitute considered righteous for

what she did when she gave lodging to the spies and sent them off in a different

direction? 26As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

Psalm 23

A psalm of David

1The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2He makes me lie down in green pastures,

    He leads me beside quiet waters,

3he restores my soul.

    He guides me in paths of righteousness

    For his name’s sake.

4Even though I walk

    Through the valley of the shadow of death,

    I will fear no evil,

    for you are with me;

    your rod and your staff,

    they comfort me.

5You prepare a table before me

    in the presence of my enemies.

    you anoint my head with oil;

    my cup overflows.

6Surely goodness and love will follow me

    all the days of my life,

    and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

    forever.

Collect for Labor Day

Almighty God, you have so linked our lives one with another that all

we do affects, for good or ill, all other lives: So guide us in the work

we do, that we may do it not for self alone, but for the common good;

and, as we seek a proper return for our own labor, make us mindful of

the rightful aspirations of other workers, and arouse our concern for

those who are out of work; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and

reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

 

Barnabas

36Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas

(which means Son of Encouragement), 37sold a field he owned and

brought the money and put it at the apostles’ feet.

 

Acts 9: 27

27But Barnabas took him to the apostles. He told them how Saul on

his journey had seen the Lord and that the Lord had spoken to him,

and how in Damascus he had preached fearlessly in the name of Jesus.

44"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field.

When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went

45"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for

fine pearls. 46When he found one of great value, he went away

and sold everything he had and bought it.

Series on Prayers in the New Testament Four Final Prayers

Mark 14: 35-36

35Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the

hour might pass from him. 36"Abba,[a] Father," he said, "everything is possible

for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will."

 

Luke 23: 33-34

33When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him,

along with the criminals—one on his right, the other on his left. 34Jesus

said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."[a]

And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.

 

Matthew 27: 45-46

45From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land.

46About the ninth hour Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eloi, Eloi,[a] lama

sabachthani?"—which means, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"[b]

 

Luke 23: 44-47

44It was now about the sixth hour, and darkness came over the whole land until

the ninth hour, 45for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was

torn in two. 46Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit

my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last.

47The centurion, seeing what had happened, praised God and

said, "Surely this was a righteous man."

Psalm 119: 1-8

 1 [a] Blessed are they whose ways are blameless,
       who walk according to the law of the LORD.

 2 Blessed are they who keep his statutes
       and seek him with all their heart.

 3 They do nothing wrong;
       they walk in his ways.

 4 You have laid down precepts
       that are to be fully obeyed.

 5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast
       in obeying your decrees!

 6 Then I would not be put to shame
       when I consider all your commands.

 7 I will praise you with an upright heart
       as I learn your righteous laws.

 8 I will obey your decrees;
       do not utterly forsake me.

 1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies

as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual[a] act of worship.

2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by

the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's

will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

1 – the Courtroom of Public Opinion

 

Hebrews 3: 12-13

12See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that

turns away from the living God. 13But encourage one another daily, as long

as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.

 

2 – the Courtroom of Conscience

 

Sǿren Kierkegaard The Concept of Dread quote

 

3 – the Courtroom of God

 

2 Corinthians 5: 10-11

10For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may

receive what is due him for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.

11Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade men.

What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience.

 

Romans 14: 10-12

10You, then, why do you judge your brother? Or why do you look down

on your brother? For we will all stand before God's judgment seat.

11It is written:
   " 'As surely as I live,' says the Lord,
   'every knee will bow before me;
      every tongue will confess to God.' "
[a]

12So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.

your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD.

15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves

the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living.

But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD."

Paul’s Second Letter to the Corinthians 5: 17-21

17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone,

the new has come! 18All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself

through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19that God was

reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them.

And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20We are therefore

Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We

implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21God made him who had

no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

 9"This, then, is how you should pray:
   " 'Our Father in heaven,
   hallowed be your name,
 10your kingdom come,
   your will be done
      on earth as it is in heaven.
 11Give us today our daily bread.
 12Forgive us our debts,
      as we also have forgiven our debtors.
 13And lead us not into temptation,
   but deliver us from the evil one.[a]'

Romans 5: 5

5And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out

his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.

 

Dag Hammarskjold Markings quote [letter titled Whitsunday, 1961 in the Chapter 1961]

I don’t know Who-or what-put the question, I don’t know when it was put.

I don’t even remember answering. But at some moment I did answer Yes to

Someone-or Something-and from that hour I was certain that existence is

meaningful and that, therefore, my life, in self-surrender, had a goal.
