James Notes

MAY 24, 2015


‘How is it that we hear, each of us, in our own native language? our own languages we hear them speaking about God’s deeds of power.’
—Acts 2:8,11b (excerpt from Lesson)

The Coming of the Holy Spirit

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly from heaven there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. Divided tongues, as of fire, appeared among them, and a tongue rested on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave them ability. —Acts 2:1-4 (excerpt from Lesson)

Offertory Anthem (9:00 and 11:00 a.m.)

Sunday’s anthem is set to music by T. Tertius Noble (1867-1953), an English-born organist who, after serving as organist and choirmaster in two prominent English cathedrals, came to America to direct the music of St. Thomas Church, New York City. He is the composer of the hymn tune Ora Labora (“Come, labor on”, #541).

Grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Amen. —Ephesians 4:30-32
