WORSHIP AT SAINT LAIKA’STHE FEAST OF SAINT DIETRICH BONHOEFFER — 3 Comments

  1. How lovely and moving! That reading by Bonhoffer was my companion when the fascist Dominionists began to take over the church. How true it is, that their dream is bigger than reality!
    For your well-being, Jonathan, keep creating these beautiful liturgies, they really pull the listener closed to
    god’s truth and beauty, and you also.

  2. No room for Bonhoeffer’s hymn?

    By gracious powers so wonderfully sheltered,
    And confidently waiting, come what may,
    We know that God is with us night and morning
    And never fails to greet us each new day.

    Yet is this heart by its old foe tormented,
    Still evil days bring burdens hard to bear;
    O give our frightened souls the sure salvation
    For which, O Lord, You taught us to prepare.

    And when this cup You give is filled to brimming
    With bitter suffering, hard to understand,
    We take it thankfully and without trembling,
    Out of so good and so beloved a hand.

    Yet when again in this same world You give us
    The joy we had, the brightness of Your sun,
    We shall remember all the days we lived through,
    And our whole life shall then be Yours alone.

    Tune: Intercessor, written by Hubert Parry on a day when he couldn’t sing “Jerusalem”
