Music Notes

Hymn 664: My Shepherd will Supply my Need

This is perhaps the loveliest tune to come from the shape-note tradition. The slow, rising swells echo the growing confidence and trust the words express, giving rise to the emotive response in the third line before drawing back to a quiet reprise of the first musical phrases. David Hurd's harmony in the accompaniment quietly supports the melody we sing. Isaac Watts, the great 18th-century hymn writer, made this paraphrase of Psalm 23, adding his own words in the last half-verse. These lines bring an already-personal psalm into the intimacy of our heart, superbly expressed in the quieting final phrase in the music. --Donna Wessel Walker

Announcements

Do You Have a St. Andrew's Parking Permit?

We continue to ask that all parishioners place a permit onto the lower left corner of their back window to identify themselves as having permission to park in our lot. Permits are available at no cost from the church office during office hours or after services on Sundays. Vehicles without permits WILL BE TOWED.

Friends in Deed Volunteers Needed

Friends In Deed are desperate for some volunteers that are willing to pick up donated furniture and deliver it to the clients on our wait list. Our warehouse is filling up, and there is a backlog of donors that need items picked up. Our routes typically take about 3 hours and we only need between 2-4 people for each route. This can be either adults or youth groups. We use a box truck with a lift gate, so putting items on the truck and taking them off isn’t too difficult. No special license is required to drive the truck. If you can help at all, please call Lora at 734 484-7607.
