Let All Things Now Living

As I've mentioned, Rally Day will mark the return of choir to our worship services. They'll sing at both services this week and alternating Sundays after that. Don't worry that you've missed a few rehearsals, you're always welcome to join us any Wednesday night!

Now, here's a message from Cassie about the piece that the choir will sing this week:

This Sunday, the choir will be singing Let All Things Now Living, a piece written by the American composer Katherine K. Davis in the early 1900s. Davis unites text filled of glorious Old Testament images with the traditional Welsh Tune, The Ash Grove. The text calls all of creation to praise and give thanks to God the Creator, "who fashioned and made us, protected and stay'd us, who guideth us unto the end of our days."
