HERE are some great resources for thinking about Trinity Sunday.

Hello Trinity Family,

Last week, I really enjoyed sharing some of my favorite contemporary Christian hymns with you. We are so blessed to have a wide range of musical genres to express ourselves with while we worship. In today’s meditation, I discuss the advantages of worshiping with different musical styles. By making deliberate choices about our service music, we can convey inclusivity, acceptance, and welcome. For today’s meditation, I offer All Creation Sings #1097, Ten Thousand Reasons. Please note that I am singing this hymn in the composer’s original key. In the hymnal supplement, it is pitched higher to better accommodate different vocal ranges. The lyrics are included in the Youtube video description. The video is HERE.

Blessings,
Angela

This week is a little different! We need your help! We need you to record yourself dancing to the song that is in this week’s video. Record a video of you dancing to the song and get it to Anita by next Friday, May 21. Also, Rosie & Sally make an appearance in this week’s video.

Hello Trinity Family,
Happy Ascension Thursday! While we have moved our official celebration of this day to Sunday, May 16th, today I want to offer a special Ascension musical offering. Much like the apostles in these ten days between the Ascension and Pentecost, during the pandemic, our staff has experienced the loneliness of ministry in front of an empty sanctuary into the camera. We are looking forward to transitioning into live-streaming worship. To demonstrate how technology can aid our efforts to create meaningful live worship experiences, the accompaniment for today’s meditation has both prerecorded and live components. The members of the Heavenly Handbells have prerecorded individual hand chime rings which I have programmed into a midi controller. As I sing today’s hymn, ACS 943 As the Wind Song, I am playing these recordings to create the accompaniment. While someday we will enjoy the Heavenly Handbells in the sanctuary again (with much more variation in technique, range, and musicianship than I can recreate with an electronic device), in the meantime our technological capabilities allow us to make worship inclusive to all.
The hymn lyrics are in the video description.
Blessings,
Angela

What Is the World Like

What is the world like when God’s will is done?
Mustard seeds grow more than we can conceive:       
roots thread the soil; branches reach for the sun.
This is how God moves us each to believe.

What is the world like when God’s will is done?
Witness the wandering child coming home;
watch as the parent breaks into a run.
This is how God longs for us when we roam.

What is the world like when God’s will is done?
No more is neighbor just ally or friend;
peace thrives in places where once there was none.
This is how God works when rivalries end.

What is the world like when God’s will is done?
Ready for feasting, we watch through the night,
tending our lamps till the new day’s begun.
This is how God readies us for the light.

These are the stories that Jesus imparts,
filled with the Spirit who joins us as one.
Born through our voices, our hands, and our hearts,
this is a new world where God’s will is done.

Hello Trinity family, 
For this week’s journey through All Creation Sings, our new hymnal supplement, I am introducing one of two new musical settings. Setting 12 ties in scripture celebrating God’s creation. This option for the Hymn of Praise, Glory to You, God specifically describes how we can joyfully respond to God’s work in the world. The lyrics can be found in the comments of the YouTube video.

Blessings,
Angela

This week, our video is different. We will be offering a very special worship service, which will focus on the gifts of God’s creation. Lutherans Restoring Creation are experts in the areas of creation care, and they have developed a worship service especially focused on this area. Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, the Presiding Bishop of the ELCA is the preacher this week. We are excited to share this worship experience with you.
