Third Sunday of Easter
For the 11:00 a.m. service on Sunday, The Rev. Karen Bowles is calling her sermon “Metanoia.” “Sometimes it takes an ancient word to come close to describing what we have forgotten and need to remember.”
For the organ prelude, Dr. Patricia Wright will play four “Easter Chorales” from the Orgelbüchlein or Little Organ Book, “The Peace May Be Exchanged” from Rubrics by Dan Locklair, and Andantino by Denis Bédard. The organ postlude is Variations on ‘Victimae Paschali’ (Christians, to the Paschal victim) by Denis Bédard. The Metropolitan Choir will sing Worthy to be Praised by Byron J. Smith, and Peter by Ken Whiteley. At the offertory, baritone Nicholas Higgs will sing “The Trumpet Shall Sound” from Messiah by G. F. Handel. The hymns are No.151 (Lift High the Cross), No.71 (Open My Eyes), and No.210 (You, Lord, Are Both Lamb and Shepherd). The final piece in the carillon prelude played by Roy Lee will be Music for an Early Spring Morning by Koen Cosaert.
The Bible readings are Acts 9:1-6 and Acts 9:7-20 (the conversion of Saul), and John 21:1-19 (Jesus appears in Galilee).
