Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
For the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, The Rev. Dr. Nancy Hardy is calling her sermon “Bread for the Journey." Jesus says "I am the bread of life." What nourishes us? Where is our bread for the journey? We know we live in a world where people either eat too much or suffer from not having enough; we are called to work for healing and reconciliation. But Jesus also says that life is more than eating and drinking. What gives us life? We can find hope and meaning for ourselves and the world with the spirit of Christ on our journey.
For the piano prelude, Chris Taeyoung Kim will play "Andante espressivo" from Song Without Words (Op. 30) by Felix Mendelssohn, "Allemande" from French Suite 5 (BWV 816) by J.S. Bach, "Raindrop" from Prelude (Op. 28) by Frédéric Chopin, and The Lord's Prayer (transcribed for piano by Carl Deis) by A.H. Malotte. The organ postlude played by Wayne C. Vance organ scholar Saya Ojiri will be The Modal Trumpet by Frederick Karam. The offertory will be Hana (Flower) with Saya Ojiri, soloist and Chris Taeyoung Kim, pianist. The hymns are No.227 (For the Fruit of All Creation), No.356 (Seek Ye First), and No.651 (Guide Me, O Great Jehovah). The last piece in the carillon prelude played by guest carillonneur Philippe Beullens will be Aria (from the opera, “Price Igor”) by Alexander Boro, arranged by P. Bullens. The Bible readings are 1 Kings 19:4-8 (But he himself went a day’s journey), Ephesians 4:25-5:2 (Rules for a new life), and John 6:35, 41-51 (Eat and live forever).
Did you Know? Today we bid a fond farewell to Saya and wish her all the best as she continues her doctoral studies here in Toronto.
