This week: Jesus & Mary in the Proto-Gospel of James

Crafts for a Cause is Trinity’s ministry to local hospitals and shelters. We’ll be making comfort pillows, dolls, blankets and hats at two work sessions this month: Monday, April 23, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. Help is needed with cutting fabric, stuffing pillows, sewing and assembling girls’ dresses. No skills required, just helping hands.
If you know of someone in the hospital or recovering at home, Crafts would be happy to send them a comfort pillow. Trinity will provide Mother’s Day gift bags of toiletries for Martha’s Table in May. If you’ve been collecting travel-size toiletries, including shampoo, soap, lotion and dental items, please bring them to the church by next Sunday. Thank you! For more information, contact Molly Sprouse.
Music Notes: The Prelude was arranged for organ in 2011 by Charles Callahan and is based on a melody by Joseph Renville, a 19th-century interpreter for the Dakota people in Minnesota. The Anthem is a 1984 setting by John Carter of the well-known spiritual from South Carolina’s Sea Islands; its Gullah title means “Come by here.” The Offertory comes from Johann Nepomuk Hummel’s 1828 Klavierschule; Hummel studied with Mozart and was a friend of Beethoven and Schubert. The 1704 Postlude is from the first opera by 19-year-old George Frideric Handel. A rigaudon or rigadoon is a lively Baroque dance in duple time from Provence; other notable rigaudons have been composed by Purcell and Rameau.
