The worship for 21 June 2020 can be found in several videos:
- Three videos that form a service of Holy Communion
- An organ voluntary
- A video for the Young Church and their households – this week from the Vice Provost
- A podcast from Patrick Grady our local MP on Climate Change and International Development – part of the CLIMATETALK series
The Vice Provost, the Rev Canon Oliver Brewer-Lennon, leads this service from the Cathedral. Other voices come from members of the congregation, some of whom are self-isolating at home. This Sunday’s sermon is preached by Sister Helena Barrett OSB. David Hanson reads from the Bible and Taylor Driggers leads the Intercessions. Music of the Ordinary (a setting by Sumsion) provided by Sarah Weir (soprano) and Frikki Walker (organ). Music at communion, ‘Take Up Your Cross’ (words by Charles William Everst and tune Bourbon after a melody by Freeman Lewis), also sung by Morven Bremner (soprano). An Organ Voluntary, Nun Danket Alle Gott by Karg-Elert is played by the Cathedral’s Director of Music and comes from a CD recording entitled ‘Notes Tremendous’.
This week the gospel says “What I say to you in the dark, tell in the light; and what you hear whispered, proclaim from the housetops.” This week’s images consist of Glasgow rooftops. The first picture comes from Wikipedia users Rosser1954 and Ming Yao Chong. Those who know Glasgow might be interested to try to work out where the photographs were taken from. One of them was taken from the top of a building in which several members of the congregation live. These photographs are released according to the Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike license. Consequently, the videos containing them are also released according to the same license. The photographs which are used in the sermon were originally printed in the Chicago Defender – they are used on a fair use basis, also being available on Wikipedia.
