Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

Canada Day  

For the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, The Rev. Dr. John Joseph Mastandrea is calling his sermon, “A Great Light: Song of the Bow.” “We continue to celebrate our 200th anniversary and today we hear in the text, David's outcry that begins by lamenting the corporate nature of loss. How do we face tragedy together, in our faith, in our speech, and in our knowledge?”

For the organ prelude, the Wayne C. Vance Organ Scholar Saya Ojiri will play All Glory Be to God on High arranged by Zachau, Vetter and Walther, Prière à Notre Dame by Léon Boëllmann, and Intermezzo by Healey Willan. The organ postlude will be Finale Jubilante by Healey Willan. The Offertory solo is Panis Angelicus by César Franck sung by Valeria Kondrashov, mezzo-soprano. The hymns are No. 326 (O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing), No.288 (Great Is Thy Faithfulness) and No.352 (I Danced in the Morning). The last piece of the carillon prelude played by guest Carilloneur Gordon Slater will be “Air for Carillon” with Variations in Classical Style by Frank Percival Price.

The Bible readings are 2 Samuel 1:1, 17-27 (David’s lament for Saul and Jonathan), 2 Corinthians 8:7-15 (Excel in generosity), and Mark 5:21-43 (Young girl raised; hemorrhaging women healed).
