July 19, 2020 The Windows of Westminster – 7 The Rev. Dr. Twining F. Campbell

Posted on July 19, 2020 @ 12:39 pm

Quinn Davis opens our worship by leading the Congregational Introit –  a hymn from our new hymnal: For All the Faithful Women.  This hymn was written in 1975 to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the first ordination of a woman in the Lutheran Church in America.  (That same year the Presbyterian Church was celebrating the 20th anniversary).

Rev Dr. Martha Campbell leads us in prayers for:
Julie Haynes has been in and out of the hospital after falling and diagnosed with a subdural hematoma.
Andrew Lee as he awaits word from cardiac testing.
Mia Fernandez, Deborah Owen’s god-daughter, and all those making college and life decisions.
Please remember Eleanor Dent and all other families who mourn.

Today, Norm Haynes leads us in the prayer of Illumination and reads the scripture lesson.  

Dawn Smith, talks about the Chancel window that depicts the Ascension of Jesus.

Imre Szilas opens the service with “Fantasy in F” by Johann Ludwig Krebs and closes with “Fugue in D minor” by Felix Mendelssohn.  The anthem is, “Yahweh”— with Quinn Davis singing the vocal part and features the Westminster Trio (Imre Szilas – piano/keyboard, Bowie Bossendorfer – drums and Twining Campbell – bass guitar).

Today we continue our series, Windows of Westminster, as Twining Campbell talks about our Mary Magdalene window.  Mary is one of the most challenging windows in our sanctuary because she has been misrepresented for most of the last 17 centuries.
Robert Smith continues to direct and film our services.  We are very grateful for the great video of our worship service today.
