You may come to service alone but you can always leave St. Andrew’s with a friend. Calling all young professionals, all students, and anyone looking for some post-service company: join us as we build community with monthly gatherings! We’ll be gathering right after the 10:00 am service on Sunday, January 21, after the coffee hour, to depart for Ama Bistro (215 S. State St.). To be added to our email list to receive announcements of future gatherings, please email Lauren Emerson (lemerson@med.umich.edu).

Join us for this brief, meditative service of thanksgiving to God for the blessings of the day and an appeal for protection through the night.

Music Notes

Hymnal 549: Jesus Calls Us

The Gospel lesson today describes Jesus calling disciples to follow him, so we sing this strong discipleship hymn. The thoughtful text repays careful attention: rich in biblical references, it challenges us to follow Jesus in the context of our modern culture. Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander, who also wrote "All Things Bright and Beautiful," included this text in a collection called Narrative Hymns for Children in 1852, but it was included in general hymnals immediately. Not just for children: this is a text we all need to heed. --Donna Wessel Walker

The Lord is My Shepherd/Alleluia (Hailstork)

Adolphus C. Hailstork (b. 1941), a professor of composition at Old Dominion State University in Virginia, received his doctoral degree from Michigan State University in 1971. He traces his interest in choral writing to the time he spent as a chorister in the Choir of Men and Boys at the Cathedral of All Saints in Albany, New York. The beautiful blend of soprano and tenor voices that begins this morning's anthem, the third movement of Hailstork's cantata I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes, creates an aura of peace and contentment. --Dennis Powers

Announcements

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.

Calendars Available

Do you ever wonder what the readings will be next Sunday or what the seasonal color of the Church year is? Or maybe which Saint or Martyr the Church is celebrating during the week? All of this information is available on the annual “Church Calendars,” both regular and ordo. Pick one up for $6 by the Memorial Garden door.
