This Sunday’s worship will feature the solo cantata, “The Way to Emmaus” by the Czech-born Jarmoir Weinberger (1896-1967). This composer studied at the Prague Conservatory, and later in Leipzig with Max Reger. After having fled the Nazis, he settled in New York City in 1939, and soon became an American citizen. “The Way to Emmaus” is a breathtaking setting of Luke 24:12-31, the story of the journey of the two disciples towards Emmaus with Jesus, whom they finally recognize “in the breaking of the bread. The soloist is soprano, Victoria Jackson.
Following worship there is a reception in the Fellowship Hall hosted by the deacons.
Everyone is invited to attend!
