This Sunday, we continued the Epiphany series called, “God is Holding Your Life.”
In these times, we can swing between disappointment, helplessness and gratitude and hope. The book of Psalms in the Bible knows all about this. Over the next six weeks, the Psalms will accompany us as we are all reminded that God is holding each one of our lives. Today we will be looking at Psalm 27 in awe and wonder. The sermon title is “Through Thick and Thin.”
KUC Music Director Tomas Bijok provided music leadership with piano, violin and voice. Hymns were “Morning Has Broken”, “Be Thou My Vision” (from “Voices United”) and “Put Peace into Each Other’s Hands” (More Voices). Gordon Britton played the organ postlude.
In 2017, the American composer Anthony Newman composed a symphony based on Psalm 27. You can listen to it here: YouTube: Psalm 27 by Anthony Newman This work describes someone who is besieged by foes and woes on every side, from which they believe only the Lord can protect them. With the exception of the opening trumpet fanfare, which sounds like the introduction to a Renaissance court, Newman adopts a style in the Psalm which is about as close to Bach as one can get without risking being accused of imitation. Newman, throughout his career has recorded 903 records. He is a Zen Buddhist, married to Rabbi Mary Jane Newman.
This worship service was shared livestream on Sunday January 10th at 10 am and is now recorded and archived at the Kamloops United Church YouTube channel along with a full archive of our worship services, meditations and other video recordings.
