Sentence Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him. Luke 4:8

The Collect O saving God, who led your people through the wilderness and brought them to the promised land: so guide us that, following our Saviour, we may walk through the wilderness of this world and be brought to the glory of the world which is to come; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

A reading from Deuteronomy 26:1-11 1

When you have come into the land that the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance to possess, and you possess it, and settle in it, 2you shall take some of the first of all the fruit of the ground, which you harvest from the land that the Lord your God is giving you, and you shall put it in a basket and go to the place that the Lord your God will choose as a dwelling for his name. 3You shall go to the priest who is in office at that time, and say to him, ‘Today I declare to the Lord your God that I have come into the land that the Lord swore to our ancestors to give us.’ 4When the priest takes the basket from your hand and sets it down before the altar of the Lord your God, 5you shall make this response before the Lord your God: ‘A wandering Aramean was my ancestor; he went down into Egypt and lived there as an alien, few in number, and there he became a great nation, mighty and populous. 6When the Egyptians treated us harshly and afflicted us, by imposing hard labour on us, 7we cried to the Lord, the God of our ancestors; the Lord heard our voice and saw our affliction, our toil, and our oppression. 8The Lord brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, with a terrifying display of power, and with signs and wonders; 9and he brought us into this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey. 10So now I bring the first of the fruit of the ground that you, O Lord, have given me.’ You shall set it down before the Lord your God and bow down before the Lord your God. 11Then you, together with the Levites and the aliens who reside among you, shall celebrate with all the bounty that the Lord your God has given to you and to your house. Hear the Word of the Lord THANKS BE TO GOD

Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16

A Reading from Romans 10:4-13 4

For Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes. Moses writes concerning the righteousness that comes from the law, that ‘the person who does these things will live by them.’ 6But the righteousness that comes from faith says, ‘Do not say in your heart, “Who will ascend into heaven?” ’ (that is, to bring Christ down) 7‘or “Who will descend into the abyss?” ’ (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8But what does it say? ‘The word is near you, on your lips and in your heart’ (that is, the word of faith that we proclaim); 9 because if you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10For one believes with the heart and so is justified, and one confesses with the mouth and so is saved. 11The scripture says, ‘No one who believes in him will be put to shame.’ 12For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; the same Lord is Lord of all and is generous to all who call on him. 13For, ‘Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.’ Hear the Word of the Lord THANKS BE TO GOD 5

The Lord be with you


The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Luke 4:1-15 GLORY TO YOU LORD JESUS CHRIST Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, 2where for forty days he was tempted by the devil. He ate nothing at all during those days, and when they were over, he was famished. 3The devil said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, command this stone to become a loaf of bread.’ 4Jesus answered him, ‘It is written, “One does not live by bread alone.” ’ 5Then the devil led him up and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6And the devil said to him, ‘To you I will give their glory and all this authority; for it has been given over to me, and I give it to anyone I please. 7If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.’ 8Jesus answered him, ‘It is written, “Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him.” ’ 9Then the devil took him to Jerusalem, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, saying to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10for it is written, “He will command his angels concerning you, to protect you”, 11and “On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.” ’ 12Jesus answered him, ‘It is said, “Do not put the Lord your God to the test.” ’ 13When the devil had finished every test, he departed from him until an opportune time. 14Then Jesus, filled with the power of the 1

Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. 15 He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone. This is the Gospel of the Lord

PARISH COUNCIL MEETING 7.00pm, Wednesday 9 March 2022 Parish Office Meeting Room


Our March outing is very different in more ways than one. Firstly, it is scheduled for a Tuesday because the Queens Wharf Information Centre is not accessible of a weekend. Secondly, this is anything but a ‘bushwalk’ but the outing does make a strong link between our heritage and the new era Brisbane. I think the outing has lots to offer especially for those of us who can recall a city skyline when City Hall was prominent. Thirdly, in our planning we were able to tie in a visit to City Hall for a noon day concert featuring the music of The Beatles. (Nerida has acquired 10 tickets, free, but only has 4 left so contact her on 0411 052 292 for the one hour free concert or alternatively you can try to reserve your own). If The Beatles is not your thing, then you can still join us for morning tea at the City hall ‘Shingle Inn’ located just outside the concert hall, between 10.45am & 11.30am. Getting There: There are a few options on offer to get yourself to the Queens Wharf Information Centre at the Gardens end of George Street. 1] Take a city cat to either the QUT ferry stop or the one at North Quay and you are a 10 minute walk away. 2] Catch a train to Central or a bus to King George Square and then walk down George Street or alternatively catch the City Loop bus Route 40 outside City Hall in Adelaide Street and it will deliver you virtually to the Information Centre. 3] Drive yourself and others? into the city centre and share the cost of a car park. Whatever your choice, you are asked to GATHER at The Queens Wharf Project Centre at street level by 9.15am for a free guided tour by Abbey who is also offering a free cuppa at the centre to sustain us. At around 10.30am we will depart for City Hall and our Shingle Inn morning tea or you can choose to walk our lovely City Gardens and perhaps do a riverside walk at your own pace. How often do you make the time to do this? What to Bring: Not too much really but suggest your Go Card, credit card or cash, a water bottle, comfortable shoes and optional BYO lunch or dine out! Contact David or Nerida Murray for further information ph 0430 122 453.
