    Anthem    The Time Has Come    Ä’riks Ešenvalds (b. 1977)

There is no easy road to freedom.  None of us acting alone can achieve success.
We must therefore act together as a united people, for national reconciliation,
for nation building, for the birth of a new world.
The time for the healing of the wounds has come.
The moment to bridge the chasms that divide us has come.
The time to build is upon us
Let there be justice for all.  Let there be peace for all.
Let there be work, bread, water and salt for all.
Let each know that for each the body, the mind and the soul
have been freed to fulfill themselves.
Let freedom reign.
    —Nelson Mandela (1918-2013)

‘Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.’”

(Luke 4:21)

        Caitlin Deranek Stewart, soprano    (1930-1987)    

With what shall I come before the Lord, 
and bow myself before God on high? 
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings; 
shall I come before Him with yearling calves?  
Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, 
with ten thousand rivers of oil? 
Shall I give Him my firstborn for my transgression, 
the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has shown you, O man; He has shown you what is good. 
And what does the Lord require of you but to do justice 
and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God. 
        —Micah 6: 6-8

Time: 6:00 PM — 7:00 PM

Second@Six is a casual, slower-paced, less traditional service held in the sanctuary on Sunday evenings.

Prayers, Scripture, and the preached Word are always a part of this service, along with the weekly celebration of the Lord's Supper.
