Celebrating the life of Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, in the Church Calendar. August 28, 2023.
Praying today for an end to the persecution of Christians in Pakistan.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Mt. Zion” by Jonathan Helser and we’ll include a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 87 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture lesson is Hebrews 12:22-24, 28-29 . We’ll say the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day. We’ll then have a time of prompted prayer.

Augustine, Bishop of Hippo, 430 – Lord God, the light of the minds that know you, the life of the souls that love you, and the strength of the hearts that serve you: Help us, following the example of your servant Augustine of Hippo, so to know you that we may truly love you, and so to love you that we may fully serve you, whom to serve is perfect freedom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
