The Old Testament Scriptures

Amos 6: 1, 4-7 In which Amos warns those who live in the lap of luxury that they shall be the first to be thrown into Exile.

Psalm 146 – In which the Psalmist praises the Lord for his many blessings, especially for blessings of freedom from oppression.

The New Testament Scriptures

1 Timothy 6: 6-19 – In which Paul writes that the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil  and that some of those who were eager to be rich lost sight of God, who gave them everything they have.

Luke 16: 19-31 – In which Jesus tells the parable of the Rich Man (Dives) and poor Lazarus, and how, in the afterlife their places seem to be switched.

Special Music

Hymn 294 – “Baptized in Water” – We will sing this during the Rite of Holy Baptism at the point when the priest sprinkles the congregants with Holy Water to remind them of their baptism.

Offertory Anthem“Most High, Omnipotent, Good Lord” – Craig Phillips

Communion Anthem – “Cujus Animam from Stabat Mater” – Gioachino Rossini, soloist: Bryan Hoyos

Lou Carol’s Organ Notes

Folk Tune” and “St. Denio” by: Percy Whitlock

Today’s prelude is a contemporary setting of an English folk tune by the English composer Whitlock.  The quiet lush harmonies add colorful and continuous support to this soulful number.

    Isn’t that typical of the English, claiming our tunes? St. Denio is Welsh, just like the Archbishop of Canterbury (and any other Anglican clergy named Williams who might have slipped my mind).
