First Reading Exodus 16:2-15
God responds to the grumbling of the Israelites by sending them manna from heaven. God wishes to teach the people obedience and there are strict instructions related to the gathering of the manna.
Second Reading Philippians 1:21-end
Paul declares that physical death is gain for him, because it will bring his union with Christ even closer.
Gospel Matthew 20:1-16
Jesus makes it clear that entry into the kingdom of heaven cannot be earned by work or good deeds. It is solely by the grace and generosity of God.
Introduction to the Peace
We are all one in unity with Christ. May we remain together in peace, friendship and love. The peace of the Lord…
Post Communion Prayer.
Keep, O Lord, your Church, with your perpetual mercy; and, because without you our human frailty cannot but fall, keep us ever by your help from all things hurtful, and lead us to all things profitable to our salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
As you go out into the world, may you be thankful for the gifts and opportunities that you have been given by God’s grace.
May you use these gifts in the furtherance of God’s kingdom on earth.
And the blessing of God almighty…
Sunday Devotions. We are planning to keep the digital services going for sometime yet for those people who are not be able to attend church at the moment. Either from choice or because of restrictions on numbers.
Please go to www.almeria-anglican.com to see this. Please keep your collection on one side until we meet in church again. Do light a candle and join in the service vocally where possible!

Just a thought. Before you assume, learn the facts. Before you judge, understand why. Before you hurt someone, feel. Before you speak, think. Remember, if God can turn night to day, then he can turn your burdens into blessings.
Prayer for this week, Thank you for loving me and caring about the smallest details in my life. Fill me with grace that I may have the strength to face what is before me today. Make me ready to face whatever comes my way. Amen.
