July 26, 2020 The Windows of Westminster – 8 The Rev. Dr. Martha Campbell

Posted on July 26, 2020 @ 12:24 pm


Quinn Davis opens our worship by leading the Congregational Introit –  a hymn from our new hymnal: For All the Faithful Women.  The fourth stanza is about Dorcas – a person and window we rarely hear about.

Pastor Twining Campbell leads our prayers for:

Julie Haynes has been in and out of the hospital after falling and but is still struggling with occasional severe headaches and blurred vision.
International students who have been fired from their school jobs and having difficulties making ends meet.
The family of Harry W. Eberts Jr. as they mourn.  Harry had been pastor of Westminster from 1967 to 1971 and died two weeks ago (July 12th) in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Today, Riley Paddock 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 his own composition “Trumpet Tune” and closes with “’Batalha’ on the 6th tone” by Pedro de Araujo.  The anthem is, “Through It All” written by Andre Crouch — with Quinn Davis singing accompanied by the Westminster Trio (Imre Szilas – piano, Bowie Bossendorfer – drums, Twining Campbell – bass guitar).

Today we continue our series, Windows of Westminster, as Rev. Dr. Martha Campbell talks about our Dorcas window.  Dorcas (also known as Tabitha) was a remarkable woman – the only woman named a disciple in the Bible who supported and cared for many widows and families.
Robert Smith continues to direct and film our services.  We are very grateful for the great video of our worship service today.
Our services are also available on our  Facebook page (Westminster Presbyterian Church, Pasadena, California) and our YouTube page (Westminster Presbyterian Church Pasadena CA).
