03/13/2016 – “Fifth Sunday of Lent: Songs of the Servant 5) The Sound of Silence”

This Sunday we listen to the very last of the servant songs of Isaiah and reflect on how it mirrors what we know of Jesus’ last days on earth, of how much he saw and remained silent about.  Isaiah 53:7 says:   “He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.”   The Cancel Choir will be singing Rob W. Ellis’ beautiful setting of the classic hymn “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross,” The lyrics include, “Did e’re such love and sorrow meet, or thorns compose to rich a crown?” The Congregation is invited to sing the same hymn later in the service.
