May 18, 2014 — Fifth Sunday of Easter

choral note
Today’s Call to Worship, Call to Confession and Charge are taken from Five Mystical Songs, composed early in the twentieth century by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. The poems come from a collection (The Temple: Sacred Poems) by Anglican priest George Herbert that was published the year of the author’s death, 1633. Music and text both share a depth of imagery and spirituality.
