Today is Trinity 7. I’ve recorded a lesson on today’s gospel reading. Here’s the gist of my message: “Don’t let today’s circumstances talk you out of God’s promises of favor and abundance.” Watch on Youtube here: https://youtu.be/Ufy5DO1RkIA Sarah and I are in Chester, CA visiting St. Andrew’s Church and Academy. We are currently exploring ways to enrich the music, chapel, and choir programs at Saint Paul’s and Canterbury Christian School. The St. Andrew’s Academy Choir sings every day of school and has been doing so since the founding of St. Andrew’s Academy in 1999. Their choir sings choral matins to begin the school day every morning and evensong every afternoon to close the day – and regularly during Sunday services. The choir has also sung throughout the United States and in churches and halls in Canada, Italy, Germany and throughout England and Scotland; in England in the early summer of 2010, they not only sang services and concerts, but sang live on BBC Radio. They’ve produced four CDs over the years.In 2007, the St. Andrew’s Academy Choir was invited to join the festivities and to perform at Pepperdine University’s “Ascending Voice International A CappellaMusic Festival.” The Choir was the only representative of the Anglican choral tradition and the youngest choir by far at the festival.
