This week is our first Sunday with Grace's new associate priest, Eric Mason.
I've asked Eric about his musical favorites and they include Mumford and Sons, Bon Iver, Head and the Heart, U2 and REM--The Beatles and CSN&Y too. Ooooooh. Lots to work with!
We've got The Good Samaritan, mercy, compassion and perhaps some hope and truth thrown in for good measure.
Gathering: Christ Before Me
Here's a beautiful arrangement by John Rutter.
Gospel: Redemption 1 by Justin Vernon (Bon Iver)
Offertory: Everybody Hurts by REM
Communion: Sigh No More by Mumford and Sons
After Communion: One by U2
Closer: All You Need Is Love by Lennon and McCartney
Cool cover by The Flaming Lips
And because we didn't include any CSN&Y here's a great cover by The Gundersen Family right here at St. Mark's in Seattle:
