This Sunday’s service will celebrate one of the most hopeful and life-giving developments in recent history, the growth of the practice of restorative justice. Jonathan Tuthill of the Hartford Community Restorative Justice Center will join us in a worship service led by members of the Mission Committee: Bill and Dot Burden, Kim Welsh, Maggie Hooker (leading the Children’s Time), Cameron Speth and Chair, Danette Harris.
We will hear how miracles are happening around us, and how we can participate in their making.
We will read from Psalm 130, Proverbs 17:9, Isaiah 42:6-7 and John 8:2-11. We will sing “There’s a Wideness in God’s Mercy,” “This Is a Day of New Beginnings” and “Let There Be Peace on Earth.” The choir will sing “Hava na Shira” and “Shalom Chaverim” and “How Could Anyone” arranged by the Amidons (see below). Pianist Annemieke McLane will play pieces by François Couperin and Erik Satie.
Here is the Sacramento Gay Men’s Chorus both singing and signing the beautiful anthem that our choir will sing this Sunday, “How Could Anyone.”
