The Gospel reading is Luke 8:5-15, the parable of the sower who plants seeds in different kinds of soil, where some seeds never grow, some sprout and die, and some flourish and produce abundant crops. It reminds us that when we hear the Word of God, and "hold it fast in an honest and good heart," we will "bear fruit with patient endurance." In other words, we must live our lives according to the Word of God, not according to the ways of the world.
The Epistle reading is from St Paul's Letter to Titus (3:8-15). In it the Apostle reminds his disciple, who was also a preacher of the Word and founder of Christian communities, that the people of God must devote themselves to good works and stay away from stupid arguments and quarrels that divide the Church. This is still excellent advice for us, almost 2000 years later.

O God of all spirits and of all flesh, who have destroyed death, overcome the devil, and given life to the world: grant, O Lord, to the souls of your servants Bucky and Shirley, who has departed from this life, that it may rest in a place of light, in a place of happiness, in a place of peace, where there is no pain, no grief, no sighing. And since You are a gracious God and the Lover of Mankind, forgive him/her every sin he/she has committed by thought, or word, or deed, for there is not a man who lives and does not sin : You alone are without sin, your righteousness is everlasting, and your word is true. You are the Resurrection and the Life, and the repose of your departed servants Bucky and Shirley. O Christ our God, and we send up glory to You, together with your eternal Father and your all-holy, good and life-givng Spirit, now and always and for ages upon ages. Amen.
