Fourth Sunday of Easter

For the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, The Rev. Dr. G. Malcolm Sinclair is calling his sermon “Your Miracle Awaits.” “A ‘miracle’ is not a religious term. It is participating in an experience from which you emerge feeling yourself in a wider and more wondrous world. A ‘miracle’ is a sign that begets wonder. With miracle in the world, much is won, and all is not lost.”

For the prelude, Dr. Patricia Wright will play “Grave” and “Adagio” from Sonata II by Felix Mendelssohn, Andante in F Major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Prelude on Brother James' Air by Searle Wright. The organ postlude will be “Allegro Maestoso e Vivace” and “Fuga” from Sonata II by Felix Mendelssohn. The Metropolitan Choir will sing O Pastor Animarum (O Shepherd of Souls) by Hildegard von Bingen for the Introit, and then Brother James' Air arranged by Gordon Jacob, and the spiritual Little Innocent Lamb arranged by Marshall Bartholomew. At the Offertory, pianist Chris Taeyoung Kim will play Consolation No.2 in E Major by Franz Liszt. The hymns are No.325 (Christ Is Made the Sure Foundation), No.273 (The King of Love My Shepherd Is), and No.326 (O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing). The last piece in the carillon prelude played by Roy Lee will be Hymn Prelude on “St Columba” (The King of Love), by Geert D'hollander.

The Bible readings are Acts 4:5-12 (Peter testifies before the high priest), 1 John 3:16-24 (Let us love, not in word in speech, but in truth or action), and John 10:11-18 (Jesus is the good shepherd).

Do you know? This Sunday at 1:30 p.m. there will be an improvisational Baroque concert featuring Rezonance Baroque Ensemble, Musicians on the Edge, and Benjamin Stein. Tickets are available at the door.
