Fourteenth Sunday After Pentecost
For the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, The Rev. Dr. G. Malcolm Sinclair is calling his sermon “Armour as Community.” “Seeing the world from our own personal perspective is the most obvious pattern, but to do so is to place too much stock in our own opinions and too little in the swirling flow of the world around us. The strength of one may seem desirable, but the cooperation and creativity of the many may get us closer to the truth.”
For the organ prelude, Dr. Patricia Wright will play Prelude and Fugue in E Minor (Cathedral) by J.S. Bach, Flute Pieces by Louis-Claude D’Aquin and François Dandrieu, and Christe, Redempter Ominum (Christ, Redeemer of All) by Healey Willan. The organ postlude will be The Emperor’s Fanfare by Antonio Soler. The offertory played by violinist Dr. Jennifer Martyn will be Vocalise by Sergei Rachmaninoff. The hymns are No.674 (Fight the Good Fight), No.600 (When I needed A Neighbour), and No.601 (The Church of Christ in Every Age). The last piece in the carillon prelude played by Roy Lee will be Psalm 15, setting for recorder by Jacob van Eyck (d. 1657), arranged by Arie Abbenes.
The Bible readings are 1 Kings 8:22-30, 41-43 (Solomon calls in God to keep God’s promise), Ephesians 6:10-20 (Put on the whole armour of God), and John 6:56-59 (To whom do we go? You have the words of eternal life).
