St Paul's Anglican

227 Bloor Street East
Sermon Rev Tim Haughton

Money Luke 12:13-21
When we rely on God, we can be delivered from the need for the security money can bring. Jesus re-told a well known parable when he told the story of the rich man and his barns.

Beautiful choral music

We pray for the church around the world. We pray for the leaders of our churches. We pray for all in our city We seek the welfare of our city. Let them see your mercy in us. We pray for the small groups that they will see Jesus better.
Lord in your mercy hear our prayer.
Gracious God we trust in your provision for the future. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Lord be with you and also with you.
Choir: Holy holy hosanna in the highest.
Communion: We do not presume to come to this table, trusting in our own righteousness, but in your abundant and great mercies.
All who are baptized in any Christian church and seek to follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior may receive the bread and wine.

What an experience! To walk down the aisle of this monumental church to the soft music of the majestic pipe organ and then to kneel at the rail to partake of the bread and wine with the words "Jesus died for you!"

Closing hymn: For the beauty of the earth.

Mary Jane came to talk to me after.

9:30 is the relaxed service we were at the 11am

Pray for Tim's son Josh(3). He has to have another heart operation this week


  1. Hello, My name is Laurie Haughton, the minister who you heard that week is my husband Tim. The boy (Joshua) is my son. I had shivers when I read that you asked for people to pray for him, it gives me so much encouragement to read this. He came through the last surgery (this past September) in a miraculous way thanks to the prayers of thousands, who, like you don't even know him. I can not tell you how grateful I am to the devoted people of God who are praying around the world for our son. He is truly a miracle. We have so much to be thankful for, and still so much to pray for. He is doing well for the moment, they still aren't happy with his tri-cuspid valve but for the moment we are holding out for him to grow. He turned 4 this year!!! That in itself is a miracle since he wasn't supposed to live past his birth.

    Thank you again for your prayers, and for calling on prayers of others. From a mother's heart I thank you!

  2. So glad to hear that Joshua is getting better. We know the pain.

    May he have many happy birthdays to come. We long for full health for Joshua.
