This Sunday in Church: Trinitytide, Proper XVI

August 19, 2010

The Old Testament Scriptures

Isaiah 58: 9b – 14 –  In which Isaiah prophesies that if the people keep the commandments and precepts of God, then God will guide them, satisfy their needs and they will be strong like a watered garden.  Those who do this will be called great and they will raise up equally strong generations to come after them.

Psalm 103: 1-8 –  In which the psalmist blesses the Lord for the many benefits bestowed upon the people.

The New Testament Scriptures
Hebrews 12: 18-29 –  In which the epistoler writes that we come to God, something that is beyond all of our imaginations, and in so doing we receive a kingdom that cannot be shaken by mortal fears and anxieties, for which we should give thanks in our reverent worship.

Luke 13: 10-17 –  In which Jesus heals a woman, on the Sabbath, who had been crippled for eighteen years.  The leader of the synagogue becomes outraged that Jesus would break the command to not do work on the Sabbath and Jesus responds in kind.

Special Music

This Sunday, the Taize musicians will be teaching and leading all of the worship music in the Taize style.  This will be a bit different from the way we typically sing hymns and psalms.  The Taize style is simple, repetitive, and intended to aid contemplation of the mighty acts and mysteries of God.  Special music will be printed in the bulletin for you to use and enjoy.

Lou Carol’s Organ Notes on the Prelude and Postlude

“Sing Praises to the Lord” – Cantate Domino;  “In the Lord Rejoicing”

Today’s music is presented by the musicians who accompany the Taize evening services from September through June.  Some hymns and liturgical items selected for today reflect the meditative and repetitive style of Taize music.
