Last week I made a quick
pastoral visit to clergy in Burnie, met with the Heads of
Churches, met with the new Chair of Anglican Camping Tasmania,
and on Sunday just past presided and preached at All Saints
South Hobart for the celebration of Pentecost. I also announced
last week that the church tribunal process in relation to former
Bishop of Tasmania, Philip Newell had been stopped by the
Supreme Court due to his health. Consequently, I spent some time
speaking with survivors of child sexual abuse who found this
very distressing. Please continue to uphold them in prayer.
Please join me in giving
thanks to God for:
faithfulness to his church in Tasmania, across the
Camping Tasmania, and the chair of the Commission, Tim Dornan.

Please pray for:

of child sexual abuse, who are struggling to find closure.

Sentence of the Day
Does not wisdom call,
and does not understanding raise her voice? ‘The Lord created me
at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of long
ago.’ Proverbs 8.1, 22
Hear, O Israel, the Lord
our God, the Lord is one; you shall love the Lord your God with
all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind,
and with all your strength.' Jesus said: 'This is the great and
first commandment. And a second is like it: you shall love your
neighbour as yourself.'
Silence may be kept.
Let us therefore bring
our sins before the one true God, in penitence and faith.
Collect of the Day
Father, we praise you,
that through your Word
and Holy Spirit
you created all things;
you reveal your
salvation in all the world
through Jesus Christ,
the Word made flesh;
through your Holy Spirit
you give us a share in your life and love:
fill us with the vision
of your glory,
that we may always serve
and praise you,
Father, Son, and Holy
one God, for ever and
Collect of the Day
from the Book of Common Prayer
Almighty and everlasting
God, who hast given unto us thy servants grace, by the
confession of a true faith to acknowledge the glory of the
eternal Trinity, and in the power of the Divine Majesty to
worship the Unity: We beseech thee, that thou wouldest keep us
steadfast in this faith, and evermore defend us from all
adversities, who livest and reignest, one God, world without

and does not understanding raise her voice?
2 On the heights, beside the way,
at the crossroads she takes her stand;
3 beside the gates in front of the town,
at the entrance of the portals she cries out:
4 ‘To you, O people, I call,
and my cry is to all that live.
Lord created me at the beginning of his work,
the first of his acts of long ago.
23 Ages ago I was set up,
at the first, before the beginning of the earth.
there were no depths I was brought forth,
when there were no springs abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains had been shaped,
before the hills, I was brought forth—
26 when he had not yet made earth and fields,
or the world’s first bits of soil.
27 When he established the heavens, I was there,
when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 when he made firm the skies above,
when he established the fountains of the deep,
29 when he assigned to the sea its limit,
so that the waters might not transgress his command,
when he marked out the foundations of the earth,
30 then I was beside him, like a master worker;
and I was daily his delight,
rejoicing before him always,
31 rejoicing in his inhabited world
and delighting in the human race.
O Lord our Governor:
how glorious is your
name in all the earth!
Your majesty above the heavens is yet recounted:
by the mouths of
babes and sucklings.
You have founded a strong defence
to quell the enemy and
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers:

stars which you have set in order,
What are we, that you should be mindful of us:
what are we, that you
should care for us?
Yet you have made us little less than gods:
and have crowned us
with glory and honour.
You have given us dominion over your handiwork:
and have put all things
in subjection beneath our feet,

A reading from
Romans commencing to read at chapter 5 verse 1
since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through
our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have
obtained access to this grace in which we stand; and we boast in
our hope of sharing the glory of God. 3 And not only
that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that
suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance
produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and
hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured
into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to
The Holy Gospel
according to John commencing to read at Chapter 16 verse 12
still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them
now. 13 When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide
you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but
will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the
things that are to come. 14 He will glorify me,
because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15 All
that the Father has is mine. For this reason, I said that he
will take what is mine and declare it to you.
All glory and honour be
yours always and everywhere,
We give you thanks and
praise for your Son,
our Saviour Jesus
who by the power of your
Spirit was born of Mary
and lived as one of us.
By his death on the
cross and rising to new life,
he offered the one true
sacrifice for sin
and obtained an eternal
deliverance for his people.
Through him, you have
revealed to us your glory in the community of your love, three
persons, one God, ever to be worshipped and adored.
Therefore with angels
and with all the company
we proclaim your great
and glorious name,
for ever praising you
Trinity Sunday [Ordinary Sunday 18] –
Sunday 16 June 2019
Proverbs 8.1-4, 22-31;
Psalm 8; Romans 5.1-5; John 16. 12-15
Today Jesus speaks to us concerning truth: ‘I still have many
things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the
Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for
he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears,
and he will declare to you the things that are to come.’ What
are we to make of this? All we can hope is that we may be found
worthy by Christ to be able to bear the truth that the Spirit
will bring. and not be either too immature for it, or too bound
in error to accept it.
we pray for your holy Catholic Church. Fill it with all truth,
in all truth with all peace. Where it is corrupt, purify it;
where it is in error, direct it; where in anything it is amiss,
reform it. Where it is right, strengthen it; where it is in
want, provide for it; where it is divided, reunite it; for the
sake of Jesus Christ thy Son our Saviour. Amen. – Archbishop
William Laud, d. 1645
for the Church of the Province of South
East Asia, remembering especially the Most Rev Ng Moon Hing, his
staff, clergy and people.

Prayer of the Week
Lord, we beseech you to
keep your family, the Church, in continual godliness, that
through your protection it may be free from all adversities, and
devoutly given to serve you in good works, to the glory of your
name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O Triune God, your
three-fold name was placed upon us when we were baptised in the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And
this day we worship the Trinity in person and the Unity in
substance of Majesty coequal. Grant us the grace to continue
in this faith until we join the hosts of heaven that cry, Holy,
holy, holy before your heavenly throne, you who live and rule,
one God, through all eternity. Amen.
O triune God, what an exciting mystery we celebrate today, that
you, our God, are three persons in one being. Your essence is so
awesome, it is beyond our understanding. O Father, you adopted
us as your children through the death and resurrection of your
Son. O Holy Spirit, you gave us faith in Jesus through explosive
power of the gospel. You testify that we are God’s children, and
you guarantee our inheritance of eternal glory with Jesus. O
holy Trinity, your saving love overwhelms us. Keep us as your
own, and each day move us to declare: Holy, holy, holy is the
Lord God almighty! We ask this in the name of your Son, Jesus
Christ, our Saviour, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy
spirit, one God, through all eternity. Amen.
