Eastertide, 2015

Easter - a Sequence for, from Temple Church

As we pondered last Eastertide, is there a way to celebrate Easter in "creative new ways"?

From the Temple Church, London comes this Sequence for Easter. (Just a few days left to listen. Hurry!)

The Sequence is centered centred around the music of Vaughan Williams. It leaves me a little cold, but that often happens when I hear too much Vaughan Williams in one sitting.

What do you think? Comment below.

Damell, Robert - 150 years since the funeral of

8 Apr 1865 - Funeral of Robert Damell held at St. Paul's, Richmond. Damell's fellow African-Americans sat downstairs, white mourners sat upstairs, and black minister Junius Taylor of St. Phillip's Episcopal Church assisted rector Beverly Danbridge Tucker in the service. These "firsts" occurred in honor of Damell's 18 years of service as St. Paul's sexton. Damell had been a "buffalo soldier" (Ninth Regiment, U.S. Calvary) in the Southwest and was later a first sergeant in the Tenth Regiment, U. S. Calvary, in Cuba.

incarnation - logical conclusion of

Resurrection is incarnation coming to its logical conclusion. If God is already in everything, then everything is from glory and unto glory. We’re all saved by mercy, without exception. We’re all saved by grace, so there’s no point in distinguishing degrees of worthiness because God alone is “all good,” and everything else in creation participates in that one, universal goodness to varying degrees. There is no absolute dividing line between worthy and unworthy people in the eyes of God, because all our worthiness is merely participation in God’s.

Archon

The author of this website is an organist whom the New York Times calls "repeatedly, insisting that he pay for his subscription". He likes to read parking meters, music, Indianapolis Monthly and weather forecasts in Celcius, particularly whilst wearing cassock and surplice. He serves lasagna, overhand, as an example to many and on ecclesiastical juries. He takes photos, lots of dinner mints, and a little bit of time to get to know.
