Today we celebrate Trinity Sunday and give thanks for God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  It is a day in which the church celebrates the mystery of God, that God is one in three and three in one all at once.

You will find this Sunday’s Service along with musical selections by Dave Caudill and Chip Houston by clicking here.
Dave shares this about today’s musical selections.

God, Who Stretched the Spangled Heavens ~ HOLY MANNA

Dave Caudill, Carillonneur ~ 48-bell Paccard carillon, Idlewild Presbyterian, Memphis

Video/audio ~ Chip Houston

The Presbyterian Hymnal, page 268

Text: Catherine Camerson, 1967, alt. Music: Attr. William Moore, 1825;

harm. Charles Anders, 1969

The text from the mid-1960s represents an important moment in the broadening

of human awareness, as the achievements of modern science and the widespread

increase in urban development affected with new urgency how people understood

themselves and their place in the world. 
How Great Thou Art ~ O STORE GUD

The Houston Quartet ~ Chip Houston, vocals; Dave Caudill, piano

The Presbyterian Hymnal, page 467

Text: Carl Gustav Boberg, 1885; English version: Stuart K. Hine, 1953;

Transliteration of Korean: Myung Ja Yue, 1989

Music: Swedish folk melody; Harm. Stuart K. Hine, 1949

This tuneful retelling of the salvation story began in Swedish and was translated

into German and then in Russian before reaching its English form. Despite such

linguistic and musical revisions, it continues to be a meaningful source of comfort

to many people.

Blessings,
Rev. Melissa
