Angela’s Music meditation for the July 4th weekend can be found HERE.

Hello Trinity Family,

For today’s meditation in anticipation of the upcoming Fourth of July holiday, I wanted to present a traditional American hymn tune. The text speaks of unity and shared experience, and the melody of today’s hymn comes from the Sacred Harp musical tradition. This style of singing arose in the Eastern United States in the late 1700s. Our hymnal modifies the harmony to sound more like the typical four part harmony that we are familiar with.
However the original tune (with different words) sounded like this instead: https://youtu.be/mFMgw-QwBGM
This Fourth of July holiday celebrates many aspects of our American culture. This year I choose to celebrate our ability to welcome our neighbors into worship, into our country, and into song.

Hello Trinity Family,

For this week’s meditation, I wanted to share a new hymn of healing from All Creation Sings, “When Memory Fades” #1081. This upcoming Sunday, we will hear about two of Jesus’ healing miracles. When I hear these short stories, I often feel a disconnect between the emotions presented and the emotions I have felt during times of personal healing. This hymn captures the nuances of experiencing hurt, healing, and faith. The lyrics center around an affliction that has affected many of our elderly loved ones, dementia. The link to the video is HERE.
Blessings,
Angela

1 When mem’ry fades and recognition falters,
when eyes we love grow dim, and minds, confused,
speak to our souls of love that never alters;
speak to our hearts by pain and fear abused.
O God of life and healing peace, empow’r us
with patient courage, by your grace infused.

2 As frailness grows, and youthful strengths diminish
in weary arms, which worked their earnest fill,
your aging servants labor now to finish
their earthly tasks, as fits your myst’ry’s will.
We grieve their waning, yet rejoice, believing
your arms, unwearied, shall uphold us still.

3 Within your Spirit, goodness lives unfading.
The past and future mingle into one.
All joys remain, unshadowed light pervading.
No valued deed will ever be undone.
Your mind enfolds all finite acts and off’rings.
Held in your heart, our deathless life is won!

Grace and Peace to you! Welcome to Worship!

Hello Trinity Family,

I loved being back at Trinity this past Sunday and seeing you all. Community is integral to my faith and worshipping with you keeps me grounded and centered. This past Sunday, I recorded today’s meditation, God is Here Today #993 in All Creation Sings, in the sanctuary after our outdoor service. I wanted to capture the energy we all bring to ministry. I hope you find hearing and seeing church members in the background as joyful as I do. Thank you for all you do for me, for each other, and in Jesus’ name.

Hello Trinity Family,

Today’s meditation comes from my hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. As I have read this upcoming Sunday’s gospel passage, the parable of the mustard seed, I’ve reflected on my growth in my faith and in my ministry. Today’s meditation is also very special to me because it features my favorite guest artist, my mother, Connie Small! I hope you enjoy these three hymns from All Creation Sings: 1015 As a Mother Comforts Her Child, 1027 Don’t Be Afraid, and 1063 God of the Fertile Fields. The video can be found HERE.

Blessings,
Angela

Hello Trinity Family,

As we transition back to our “green” Sundays and spend time reflecting on how we worship, I offer three shorter hymns from All Creation Sings. These short hymns would fit well as responses throughout the service, like after communion. I encourage us as we hear these different hymn texts to reflect on how we respond to worship and to God’s love in our hearts. What parts of our faith do we boldly proclaim? What parts of worship encourage us to speak out? Which Bible verses are our favorite to sing? Today I offer three choices for us, ACS 1018 Deep Peace, 1035 Though the Earth Shall Change, and 1041 God is Love. The video can be found HERE.

Blessings,
Angela
