New Vision Notes Thursday Oct 25 2018

The next New Vision note you will receive will come on All Saints Day, if I manage it.

The week ahead includes the first Jazz Vespers of the 2018/19 series. Enjoy a late afternoon offering this coming Sunday of the poetry of late 20thcentury/21st century Irish poet Seamus Heaney and cool jazz from the Adrean Farrugia Trio with guest vocalist Juno award winning Sophia Perlman.  We gather at 4:30 pm in The Music Hall.

Heaney had a gift for word portraits of Irish life. We’ll be hearing mostly from that element of his work rather than the more painful parts that speak from the darkness of the Irish troubles. As sharp and tough as Irish life and landscape can be, and aching in their truth-telling.

We gather at our usual time on Sunday morning for worship at 10:30 am. It’s a season where it feels like there is only a thin membrane between this life and that beyond. We’ll be reflecting on the miracle of blind Bartemaeus seeing what he had never seen before.

See you Sunday ~

Rev. Ian
