This Weekend's Divine Services

Were a joy and a half. I dearly love the readings for Trinity XIX in any case, but what made it very sweet was that I got to play the Saturday Divine Service, and then choir sang at both the Sunday Divine Services. That means that I got to sing three times (and play once) my favorite hymn of all time: "Lord, Thee I Love With All My Heart." How sweet is that? Add in a very fine homily by Pr. Gleason, the choir getting to sing the gentle Cantique de Jean Racine and the boisterous opening of Luther's Te Deum (Ambrosianer Lobgesang, auf Deutsch even!), and it all added up to a most wonderful weekend.
