Music selections include a movement of the beautiful Fauré piano trio and the exciting first movement of the Brahms Trio #1. The service will also include, Messiaen's poignant Louange a l'eternite de Jesus [Meditation on the Et ernity of Jesus] - a work written inside a Nazi prisoner of war camp.

verse of the week

When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous, but dismay to evildoers.

- Proverbs 21:15
voice of the week

I use the term radical in its original meaning - getting down to and understanding the root cause. It means facing a system that does not lend itself to your needs and devising means by which you change that system.

- Ella Baker
prayer of the week

Loving God, teach us to order the desires of our hearts according to the call to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with you. Amen.
thought for the week
George MacDonald
For the righteousness of God goes far beyond mere deeds, and requires of us love and helping mercy as our highest obligation, and justice to our fellow humans, those of them too who have done nothing for us - those even who have done us wrong. Our relations with others, God first and then our neighbors, must one day become as in true nature they are, the gladness of our being; and nothing then will ever appear good for us that is not in harmony with those blessed relations.
