First Reading: Ezekiel 34:11-16, 20-24


11For

thus says the Lord God: I myself will search for my sheep, and will seek them out. 12As shepherds seek out their flocks when they are among their scattered sheep, so I will seek out my sheep. I will rescue them from all the places to which they have been scattered on a day of clouds and thick darkness. 13I will bring them out from the peoples and gather them from the countries, and will bring them into their own land; and I will feed them on the mountains of Israel, by the watercourses, and in all the inhabited parts of the land. 14I will feed them with good pasture, and the mountain heights of Israel shall be their pasture; there they shall lie down in good grazing land, and they shall feed on rich pasture on the mountains of Israel. 15I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep, and I will make them lie down, says the Lord God. 16I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the injured, and I will strengthen the weak, but the fat and the strong I will destroy. I will feed them with justice. 20Therefore, thus says the Lord God to them: I myself will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep. 21Because you pushed with flank and shoulder, and butted at all the weak animals with your horns until you scattered them far and wide, 22I will save my flock, and they shall no longer be ravaged; and I will judge between sheep and sheep. 23I will set up over them one shepherd, my servant David, and he shall feed them: he shall feed them and be their shepherd. 24And I, the Lord, will be their God, and my servant David shall be prince among them; I, the Lord, have spoken. For the word of the Lord: Thanks be to God

Psalm 100 (said antiphonally)


O shout to the Lord in triumph, all the earth: Serve the Lord with gladness, and come before his face with songs of joy. 2 Know that the Lord he is God: It is he who has made us and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 3 Come into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: Give thanks to him, and bless his holy name. 4 For the Lord is good, his loving mercy is for ever: his faithfulness throughout all generations.

Second Reading: Ephesians 1:15-23


I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love towards all the saints, and for this reason 16I do not cease to give thanks for you as I remember you in my prayers. 17I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know him, 18so that, with the eyes of your heart enlightened, you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance among the saints, 19and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power for us who believe, according to the working of his great power. 20God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, 21far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come. 22And he has put all things under his feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, 23which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all. For the word of the Lord: Thanks be to God

The Gospel: Matthew 25:31-46


The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew chapter twenty-five, beginning at the thirty-first verse. Glory to you Lord Jesus Christ 31 When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. 32All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, 33and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. 34Then the king will say to those at his right hand, Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; 35for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me. 37Then the righteous will answer him, Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? 38And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? 39And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you? 40And the king will answer them, Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me. 41Then he will say to those at his left hand, You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; 42for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me. 44Then they also will answer, Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you? 45Then he will answer them, Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me. 46And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. For the Gospel of the Lord: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Lets do it again. Items can be brought in now and kept until the trees go up. Lists of appropriate food and toys are on the notice boards. Parish Poo: There is still plenty of poo left in the cage, 10 bucks a bag is cheap for Paynes Gold well, Paynes dark brown really! But whatever, it is great for your garden. Parish Polo Shirts: It was lovely to witness a "sea of burgundy polo shirts" at last weeks Fete (check out the photos on the parish website or on the notice board). Feedback from the community was really great with many saying it gave our church a sense of identity which we should be proud of. There have been a couple of parishioners wishing to place an order but to keep prices at a minimum we need the orders to be of ten or more. If you wish to buy a polo shirt for future Fetes, Stalls, Working Bees, Parish functions etc, please contact Caroline Burge. We won't be placing an order for a few weeks (unless we get inundated with orders) so if it helps you to pay it off in weekly instalments please let Caroline know. We do still have two large size left at $30. Retiring Collection: Our Mission Retiring Collection over the coming Months will be for the famine on the Horn of Africa through AngliCORD. Children, pregnant women and the elderly are amongst those hardest hit in the burgeoning humanitarian crisis caused the worst drought in sixty years in the Horn of Africa. Please give generously.

Saints Days this week: Wednesday 23rd Nov Clement of Rome, bishop & martyr (d.c. 100); Friday 25th James Noble, pioneer Aboriginal deacon (d. 1941). Pew Reflections for the Feast of Christ the King There is a way in which Christians like to see God as love, compassion, forgiveness, reconciliation and so forth such that they are averse to Christ the King who will judge them. In todays gospel, God takes human actions and non-actions seriously. The world is awash with the hungry, destitute, and imprisoned. If each one of us did just one thing a week for each of these people, we will be able to inherit the kingdom of God with Christ the King on the day of judgment. Pray that every Christian may take seriously his or her ministry to the afflicted. Give thanks for the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, for its Prime Bishop, Edward Malecdan, and for his clergy and people.

The words and inspiration of Archbishop Desmond Tutu Im coming to believe more and more in the truth that everything we do has consequences. A good deed doesnt just evaporate and disappear.
