Readings: Jeremiah 11:18-20 Mark 9:30-37
Collect: Almighty God, you have created the heavens and the earth, and ourselves in your image.

Sea Sunday Collect: Almighty Father, Creator of the oceans and land whose Son sailed the seas and calmed the storms, anoint all seafarers with your Holy Spirit, that as it breathed over the waters of creation, so may you bring newness of life to them and us. Through Jesus Christ our Lord.
