Trinity Sunday May 26 2024 Bulletin


May 26, 2024


LIVE AUDIO STREAMING during today’s service is available on the Order of Service page. Recorded audio will be added following worship.


Today we come to Trinity Sunday in the church calendar, which provides us with the answer to the all important question, “ In light of all that the Church has shown us concerning the Advent, the Birth, the Baptism, the preaching, the teaching, and miracles , the suffering, death and resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ, and the sending of the Holy Spirit…Who is God?” God is the Father, who is always with His Son and always with His Holy Spirit. God is communion of love of the persons of the Trinity. 

THE LESSON: Revelation 4:1-11

After this I looked, and lo, in heaven an open door! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, “Come up hither, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At once I was in the Spirit, and lo, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne! And he who sat there appeared like jasper and carnelian, and round the throne was a rainbow that looked like an emerald. Round the throne were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clad in white garments, with golden crowns upon their heads. From the throne issue flashes of lightning, and voices and peals of thunder, and before the throne burn seven torches of fire, which are the seven spirits of God; and before the throne there is as it were a sea of glass, like crystal. And round the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind: the first living creature like a lion, the second living creature like an ox, the third living creature with the face of a man, and the fourth living creature like a flying eagle. And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all round and within, and day and night they never cease to sing, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!” And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to him who is seated on the throne, who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who is seated on the throne and worship him who lives for ever and ever; they cast their crowns before the throne, singing, “Worthy art thou, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for thou didst create all things, and by thy will they existed and were created.

THE HOLY GOSPEL: John 3:1- 15

Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. He came to Jesus by night and said to him, ‘Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God.’ Jesus answered him, ‘Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above. ’Nicodemus said to him, ‘How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can one enter a second time into the mother’s womb and be born?’ Jesus answered, ‘Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be astonished that I said to you, “You must be born from above.” The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.’ Nicodemus said to him, ‘How can these things be?’ Jesus answered him, ‘Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things? ‘Very truly, I tell you, we speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet you do not receive our testimony. If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. And just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. 


PRESENTATION ABOUT FOOD LOSS AND WASTE. on Monday, May 27 at 2:15pm @ St. Mary’s. The City of Regina will be coming in to speak and educate about how to sort kitchen waste: what should be recycled, what goes in the organics bin, what goes in the garbage, and the consequences of incorrectly sorting waste. There will be time for questions and myth-busting. Is it true that recycled glass tumbles to the bottom and just ends in the landfill, anyway? Is it true that the organics bins are full of needles? Join us on May 27 and buckle up. 

THE NEXT EDITION OF THE GRAPEVINE will be available on June 16th. Submissions are due by JUNE 12th and should be sent to Lorna or Shelley.
