1 THE NINTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY – SUNDAY 1 AUGUST 2021 Introduction by The Rev’d Dr Iain C Barclay- The Chaplain Good afternoon everyone. On behalf of the Chairman and Trustees of the Thistle Trust may I welcome you once again to the Robin Chapel here in Edinburgh for our afternoon Service. Today is the 9th Sunday in the Season of Trinity. I am Dr Iain Barclay, the Chaplain. Today is also Minden Day when we mark the anniversary of the Battle of Minden on 1 August 1759 which was one of the many battles and skirmishes which took place during the Seven Years War. Amongst the forces with a Scottish connection which took part in the battle were the 25 th Regiment of Foot, the Kings Own Scottish Borderers, now part of the Royal Scots Borderers of The Royal Regiment of Scotland. Had we been in the Chapel today there would have been a presentation of Minden Roses commemorating the event. It was said that the men picked roses and put them in their headdress so that they could tell friend from foe in the heat of the battle. I would also like to welcome our Reader, Sue-Anne Webster a very talented magician from New South Wales and member of my former congregation of The Scots Church in Sydney. It is wonderful to welcome you today Sue-Anne. Again, we are ably supported in our worship by the voices of James Slimings our Director of Music, Sally Carr one of our Lay Clerks and Calum Robertson our Assistant Organist who come together as The Robin Chapel Music Group. Call to Worship Oh come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker! Psalm 95:6 The Chaplain Let us now worship God - together! The Bidding Psalm Psalm 51 O God, be gracious to me in your love Tune: Song 24 Hymn 40 in Church Hymnary 4th edition The Robin Chapel Music Group Call to Prayer Offered by The Chaplain Come and see what God has done: He is awesome in His deeds toward the children of man. Shout for joy to God all the earth; sing the glory of His name; 2 give to Him glorious praise! Psalm 66:5 & 1,2. Prayers of Adoration, Confession, Absolution and Supplication. Prayers of Adoration Worthy of praise from every mouth, of confession from every tongue, of worship from every creature, is your glorious name, Father Son and Holy Spirit, one God forever. You created the world in your grace, and by your compassion you redeemed it. Heaven and earth are full of your praises: glory be to you, O God most high. Angels and Archangel and all the hosts of heaven worship you. We are not worthy to praise you; but, for your mercy’s sake, accept the praises of all your servants, in this house and throughout the world; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Gracious Father, your might is beyond measure, your wisdom beyond knowledge, your love beyond all telling. You have put eternity into our hearts, and made us hunger and thirst for you. Satisfy the longings you have implanted that we may find you in life, and find life and you: through Jesus Christ our Lord Amen. Prayer of Confession Merciful God, you made us in your image, with a mind to know you, a heart to love you, and a will to serve you. But our knowledge is imperfect, our love inconstant, our obedience incomplete. Day by day we fail to grow into your likeness; yet you are slow to be angry with your children. For the sake of Jesus Christ, your Son, our Saviour, Offered by The Chaplain 3 do not hold our sins against us, but in your tender love, forgive. Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy. silence The Absolution The almighty and merciful Lord grant you pardon and remission of all your sins, time for amendment of life, and the grace and comfort of the Holy Spirit. AMEN Prayers of Supplication God of love, your Son gave us a new commandment, that we should love one another, even as you love us, the unworthy and the wandering. Give us a mind forgetful of past ill-will and a heart to love one-another; through the same Jesus Christ, your Son, our Saviour. AMEN The Old Testament Reading The Second Book of Samuel, chapter 11, verses 26 to chapter 12 verse 13.
