God our Saviour
your Son has promised
that when two or three come together in his name
he is there with them:
open our eyes that we may see him
and our hearts that we may love him;
through Jesus Christ our Lord
who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit
one God, now and for ever. Amen

New ev‟ry morning is the love

New ev’ry morning is the love
Old friends, old scenes, will lovelier be,
our wak’ning and uprising prove;
as more of heav’n in each we see;
through sleep and darkness safely brought
some soft’ning gleam of love and prayer
restored to life and pow’r and thought.
shall dawn on ev’ry cross and care.
2
5
New mercies, each returning day,
The trivial round, the common task,
hover around us while we pray;
will furnish all we need to ask,
new perils past, new sins forgiv’n,
room to deny ourselves, a road
new thoughts of God, new hopes of heav’n.
to bring us daily nearer God.
3
6
If on our daily course our mind
Only, O Lord, in thy dear love
be set to hallow all we find,
fit us for perfect rest above;
new treasures still, of countless price,
and help us, this and ev’ry day,
God will provide for sacrifice.
to live more nearly as we pray.

SPRING DAY ‘PLANTATHON’
A letter from the Cathedral Centre Supervisor, Edwin Derengi:
26 July 2012
Dear Dean
As the Cathedral gardens are currently in the process of being redone, and due to the high
cost of purchasing plants, and the labour required to plant them, I would like to propose the
following:
Members of the Parish, their family and friends are invited to take part in the “Spring Day
Plantathon” on Saturday 1 September at 10 am.
Members are asked to contribute their time to assist in planting plants which they may
donate from their own garden or they may purchase a plant if they prefer. All types of
plants / flowers will be gratefully accepted and members may contribute a single plant, or
more, as they prefer.
Some members may wish to take part and may not be able to contribute a plant, but may
offer their time to assist with the planting.
On Saturday 1 September, we meet together as a team and plant the plants they have
brought.
Kind regards
Edwin

AN EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED!
Each cultural group will showcase their cultural talent in the form of entertainment
(e.g. dance), art work (paintwork, beadwork, displays, etc), attire (clothing), cultural displays of
any form, food, customs, etc.
The request is that each ethnic group or cultural group gets together to discuss how
they plan to showcase their culture on that day. Each group will nominate a leader that will
report from time to time to the planning committee. If you find yourself alone please come
forward and be linked to another minority group so that there will be diversity of cultures in
one group in the spirit of sisterhood and brotherhood united in Christ. Other cultural groups
from outside the Cathedral may be incorporated into a culture group but the leader must be a
member of the Cathedral parish.
This promises to be a fun evening so let’s get together, know each other and share
our cultures in oneness, and in the spirit of fundraising.
Please give your names to Ms Phumzile Nxumalo (072 246 2337) after the service
stating the culture group and contact details. The planning team will then be able to give
direction to those who do not know each other.
Tickets will be sold at R100.

THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION – THE BIBLE IN THE LIFE OF THE CHURCH
Blessed Lord
who caused all holy Scriptures to be written for our
learning:
help us so to hear them
to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them
that, through patience and the comfort of your holy word,
we may embrace and for ever hold fast
the hope of everlasting life
which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ;
who is alive and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit
one God, now and for ever. Amen
11
Merciful God
teach us to be faithful in change
and uncertainty
that trusting in your word
and obeying your will
we may enter the unfailing joy of
Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen
