Coventry Suppers

The Coventry Supper sign-up sheet is on the Welcome Desk.

Those who sign up will be placed in groups of eight that will gather for potluck suppers during the year. When the groups are assigned, one person will agree to call the others to arrange the first gathering. The caller will host the first supper, provide the main dish and the others will each bring a dish for the meal. The idea is for each person to host the group during the year. This is a supper and the purpose is fellowship; it is not intended as an occasion to drag out the fine linens and silver! Each group will decide how often they will gather, but it is suggested that it be at least every four to six weeks.

2015 Episcopal Calendars

The 2015 Episcopal Church Calendars, both Ordo and Regular, have arrived; they are $6.00 each and feature a photo of the acolytes on Easter. They can be found in the lobby, near the chapel.

Do You Have a St. Andrew's Parking Permit?

We continue to ask that all parishioners place a permit onto the lower left corner of their back window to identify themselves as having permission to park in our lot. Permits are available at no cost from the church office during office hours or after services on Sundays. Vehicles without permits WILL BE TOWED

Music Notes

Hymn 541: Come, Labor On

This hymn draws on several Gospel passages that have themes of work in the fields or vineyards; the first verse refers to our Gospel lesson this morning. These biblical threads were woven together by Jane Laurie Borthwick (1813-1897), a Scottish hymn writer and translator. Despite its unpromising first phrase and its old-fashioned earnestness, this hymn remains popular because of the stirring inspiration of its call to selfless service and its sense of the urgency of that call. Singing it puts us in solidarity with all who work for the reign of God, wherever they are on the “harvest plain.” --Donna Wessel Walker

O God My King - (Bruckner)

John Amner (1579-1641) had no formal affiliation with Ely Cathedral but was associated his entire life with its choral foundation. His early compositions conform to John Merbecke’s (1510-1585) ideal style of a simple syllabic setting of a clearly intelligible text but this changed to a more elaborate verse-anthem and polyphonic choral style as the years went on. --Dennis Powers
