Another lovely Sunny Autumn day for our 10 am Mattins this week .  The service was taken by Father Stephen. The Psalm for this Sunday was psalm 113. The Benedictus was sung by the Choir in the setting in C major by C V Stanford. The Gospel this week, continuing our readings from Luke, was the parables of the dishonest manager, which has a surprising ending, with apparent reward for dishonesty!  Father Stephen explained that Biblical scholars interpret the apparent discounting of the debts by the manager as a reduction of his own commission to help the debtors, not an attempt to swindle his master! The message remains you cannot serve God and wealth.
The Choir sang 'Teach me Oh Lord the way of thy Statutes'  setting by Thomas Attwood as the Anthem.

There was coffee after the service.

Dont forget to buy your Harvest Supper tickets fromt he church wardens.

Do come to the Cathedral ot 10:30 am on the 1st of October to support the Choir as they sing the
Prayer Book Society Service.
