Cathedral Music

Mostly unchanged since the 16th Century, Evensong continues to be one of the most treasured liturgies of the Anglican tradition, especially as celebrated in cathedral churches. Evensong has become a cultural pehnomenon in many parts of the country as a way to find inner peace through reflection and reintegration.

 When: 4 p.m., Sunday, May 18

Organ Dedication

Holy Nativity Episcopal Church will dedicate its new organ at a Choral Evensong service, 5 p.m., May 18. The organ will be named the Jim Livengood Memorial Organ, after the beloved late choirmaster and organist at Holy Nativity and St. Marks School of Texas  from which the organ came. The dedication service will feature both organ and choir. As our choir is small, we invite additional singers to fill our ranks. Several 7 p.m., Wednesday evening rehearsals will be held prior to the dedication.  The choir will perform “How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place” the sacred, stirring centerpiece movement of the Requiem by Johannes Brahms, and “Glorious Everlasting” by Thomas Cousins. Those wishing to sing with us should contact Valerie Pankratz This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

 Distant Mirrors: Anglican mission history and the opportunities before us

There are significant ways in which our contemporary situation is unique and unprecedented. But in other ways we can find analogies in previous chapters of mission involving our forebears.  What can we learn from these case-studies, and how would we apply this to our own evangelistic ministries? 

 The Rev. Dr. George R. Sumner is the principal and professor of mission at Wycliffe College, an Anglican theological college in Toronto, Canada.  He was ordained in central Tanzania as a missionary from the Episcopal Church, and has also served in a variety of settings including a native mission in Arizona and a parish in a small town.  He has a doctorate in theology from Yale, and has written books on the relation of the Christian faith to other religions, theology through hymns, and the nature of ordination.
