Jackson Kemper, Bishop and Missionary, 1870

The Collect:

Rite I:
O God, who didst send thy son Jesus Christ to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near, Grant that we, like thy servant Jackson Kemper, may proclaim the Gospel in our own day, with courage, vision, and perseverance; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth, world without end. Amen.

Rite II:
O God, who send your son Jesus Christ to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near, Grant that we, like your servant Jackson Kemper, may proclaim the Gospel in our own day, with courage, vision, and perseverance; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit liveth and reigneth, world without end. Amen.

First Lesson: 1 Corinthians 3:8-11

8The one who plants and the one who waters have a common purpose, and each will receive wages according to the labour of each. 9For we are God’s servants, working together; you are God’s field, God’s building.

10 According to the grace of God given to me, like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it. Each builder must choose with care how to build on it. 11For no one can lay any foundation other than the one that has been laid; that foundation is Jesus Christ.

Psalm: Psalm 67

1 May God be merciful to us and bless us, *
       show us the light of his countenance and come to us.
2 Let your ways be known upon earth, *
       your saving health among all nations.
3 Let the peoples praise you, O God; *
       let all the peoples praise you.
4 Let the nations be glad and sing for joy, *
       for you judge the peoples with equity
       and guide all the nations upon earth.
5 Let the peoples praise you, O God; *
       let all the peoples praise you.
6 The earth has brought forth her increase; *
       may God, our own God, give us his blessing.
7 May God give us his blessing, *
       and may all the ends of the earth stand in awe of him.

Gospel: Matthew 28:16-20

16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. 18And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’
