Music for November 2

notesWe celebrate All Saints’ Day, this Sunday, November 2. In addition to remembering all of the saints who have gone before us, we are celebrating our Name Day. We will have one baptism at the 10a.m. service, and every All Saints’ piece that you would hope to hear. Our hymns are: “For all the saints,” “I sing a song of the saints of God, “ and “When the Saints go marchin’ in.” Our music will be enhanced by the trumpet playing of Kelly Bray and Scott Bempkins. All three vocal choirs will sing, and the handbell choir will play. One anthem that will be sung with combined choirs is “Goin’ Home,” by Dvorak/Robert Lehman. The theme is based on part of Dvorak’s “New World Symphony.” The words were written by one of Dvorak’s students, who also adapted and arranged the song in the style of a Spiritual. Contemporary composer Robert Lehman has made a newer arrangement, with the youth choirs acting as the solo.

Sunday Forum 11/2

On November 2, Cina Barker will lead a conversation about saints.  What is a saint?  What do we mean when we say someone is a saint?  What qualities does that imply?  Have you known a saint?  Join us for this timely discussion on All Saints Day.

The viewers are told to count the number of times the people dressed in white pass the ball to each other. After the short video viewers are asked if they saw anything unusual as they counted the passes. Most people say they did not notice the huge gorilla that walked across the screen.   Continue reading
