This hymnfest was held at Bethany on September 20, under the direction of Cantor Phillip Magness.  Musicians included choir members from three other congregations, along with the Bethany Brass, two of Bethany's children's choirs (Schola Cantorum and Christus Choir), and various other assisting musicians on flutes, clarinet, keybaords, and percussion.  Pastoral speakers were Rev. Scott Bruzek from St. John-Wheaton, Rev. David Balla from Trinity-West Chicago, and Rev. Paul Mumme from Divine Shepherd-Bolingbrook. The "new will" offering received at the concert benefitted the Expressive Arts program at LutherBrook Academy in Addison, IL.

Unfortunately there is a flaw in the recording from this week and I haven't managed to transfer the recording onto the computer, so this will be a little late. I think I can get it transferred tonight.

The divine service - absolution, music, response, liturgy, readings, sermon, communion. We don't do it because it's beautiful, that's not the point. But I have never found anything so moving as a well done liturgical service. Taken from the word, it is filled with truth and meaning both sung and spoken.

This was a remarkably good liturgical service.
