Music Ministry: We Are the Stained Glass

Anthem celebrates different contributions that people bring to a congregation
(March 14) I want to thank the quartet for their musical contribution during Sunday’s service. I always look forward to working with these fine musicians.   A big thanks to Tim for his sermon response which was an except for John Henry Maunder “Cast thy Burdens…” This Saturday night, Tim Koch, will  sing with the Cappella Festiva at Vassar College Chapel in Poughkeepsie. He has a short solo. Should the weather be good you may like to take a drive to you can hear the performance. Here'a s link.
 
This Sunday, the choir will sing an interesting anthem recently composed by Joseph Martin and Heather Sorenson. Pastor Pat will preach on the theme of “Stained Glass,” which is the title of the song. Mr. Martin and Ms. Sorenson developed the subject of this composition while having lunch. Sitting by the window they looked at the church across the street that had many beautiful stained glass windows. Noticing the beauty of the glass was only created by the fact that they were the creation of multiple colored smaller pieces of glass, they realized the glass represents all the individuals that form a congregation.  Substituting different backgrounds from which people come, the different issues that people have, and the different contributions that people bring to a congregation led them to create this unique composition. 
 
Remember that Jazz Sunday is a week from Sunday – March 22nd.
 
Peace and comfort through music,
Jim Moriarty
