Medical Decision-Making Event

On Sunday, November 10, in the Parish Hall at 11:30, the Episcopal Health Ministers will show the acclaimed documentary “End Game.” This short film is about important choices we make about how we want to live, when we know our time remaining will be brief. The film trailer will be showing outside the Chapel today. Dr. Adam Marks, associate director of the Adult Palliative and Supportive Care Clinic at the East Ann Arbor Health and Geriatrics Center will be joining us again to provide his own thoughts and answer questions after the film. There is no charge for this event and you do not need to pre-register. Please join us! EVENT FLYER

Music Notes

Hymn 388: O worship the King

This majestic hymn has its origins in the prehistory of modern hymnody, when only psalms were sung in church. The tune first appeared in the early 18th century, and was used for several different psalms; by 1750 it was in almost every English-language hymnbook and on English organ-barrels, second in popularity only to another psalm tune, “Old 100th”, the Doxology. The words are a paraphrase of Psalm 104 written for a book of psalmody in 1833. Ranging from creation and rule of the cosmos to tenderness and mercy, this is a fitting tribute to Christ our King. --Donna Wessel Walker

Give Us the Wings of Faith (Bullock)

Ernest Bullock (1890-1979) was Organist and Master of Choristers at Westminster Abbey from 1928 to 1941. After teaching at the University of Glasgow in Scotland from 1941 to 1952, he became Director of the Royal College of Music in London in 1953. He provided music for the coronations of King George VI in 1937 and for Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 as a function of these posts. --Dennis Powers
