August 14, 2016 — Thirteenth Sunday after Pentecost

The powerful text of They Cast Their Nets in Galilee comes from a poem entitled “His Peace” from Enzio’s Kingdom and Other Poems by William Alexander Percy. Percy was a student and later English professor at the University of the South (Sewanee). His text is based largely on the great catch at Galilee as told in Luke 5:1. This text and tune first appeared in the Episcopal Hymnal 1940.
