The 26 votive candles in this photo of the church window represent those whose lives were taken in a Baptist church in Sulphur Springs, Texas. The red candles represent the thousands who are murdered by gun violence each year in the US.

Rev. Mayo's proclamation from Sunday, November 12, 2017 is preceded by the scripture lesson, Isaiah 2:2-4, and the pastoral prayer. The final piece of the recording is the choir singing "Thou Shalt Know Him" by an anonymous author.

This beautiful Requiem, sung by the Covenant Choir, covered two worship services but is presented in its entirety here. The scripture lesson for this Sunday, November 5, included Isaiah 54:10 and Hebrews 12:1-2. 

The first service contained the first three movements, Requiem (0:56)*, Out of the Deep (7:15), and Pie Jesu (13:47). Susan Wegner on the cello joined the choir in Out of the Deep.

The last four movements were heard at the later service: Sanctus (18:05), Agnus Dei (20:20), The Lord Is My Shepherd (27:00), and Lux Aeterna (32:40). Guest oboist, Liz Hebert, joined the choir on The Lord Is My Shepherd. 

The soprano soloist at both services was Casey Okabayashi.

Rev. Laura Mayo gave the prayer at the end of this recording.
