Summer Music Notes

Hello, friends!

I hope that all of you have found ways to welcome in the beautiful summer weather, while avoiding a bad case of sunburn!

I want to let you know of the musical opportunities that are available at Calvary over the next couple of months.  Beginning next Sunday, we will be having handbells available to ring by members of the congregation during the singing of the Psalm.  PLEASE NOTE: No rehearsal time/experience is required and all ages are welcome!  Please step up when I invite congregants to come forward, and help us make a joyful noise to the Lord!

I also want to share that Cambridge Choir will continue to sing for the 10:30 AM service.  However, there will be no rehearsals on Wednesday evenings.  We will meet at 9:45 AM and work on a simple, lighter anthem that can be learned for the following service.
      If you have any interest at all in singing in Cambridge Choir this would be a wonderful, low-stress opportunity to “get your feet wet” and try things out.  I wish all of you a great start to your summers and hope to see some new faces participating in the music at Calvary!
Nathan Fratzke, Choir Director

KC Power and Light!

A big group of Calvary parishioners and friends traveled to Kansas City to participate in “The Awakening of the Spirit in West Missouri”.  Presiding Bishop Michael Curry was the keynote preacher.  Bishop Curry encouraged us to join in the movement Jesus started long ago, to bring love, hope, healing, justice, and reconciliation to the world around us.  What a hope-filled theme as we approach the Day of Pentecost, and as we hear the Gospel reading that, if we believe, we will do great things in Jesus’ Name.  Amen.  Come Lord Jesus!

Virtually anything worth doing requires sacrifice of some kind.  Being in a relationship; raising children; honing a talent or skill; participating in an athletic event.  Life can be costly, and we certainly all know that forgiveness is.  It cost Jesus everything.  But Jesus’ willingness to give himself for us secured our eternal salvation.

That is a truth this coming Sunday’s Epistle highlights.  But the Epistle also poses a question: are we–are you–living in a way that honors the preciousness of the sacrifice that Christ made?

The better we understand what Jesus has done for us, the more we will want to live for him–at least if we are people of honor, and integrity.

This Sunday’s Epistle is a frank reminder that Christianity is more than a feeling; it is a manner of life, stemming from the fact that Jesus gave his life for us.  The first Christians simply called it “the Way”.  Grounded in love, it seeks to grow in personal and communal holiness, as we pattern our lives more and more after the example of Jesus.
