bring me li’l water — trinity sunday

• May 27th, 2018

Because it's memorial day weekend (and because our recording of our own marvelous singers didn't work), here's a link to the US Navy Band singing Bring Me L'il Water, Sylvie which Pr Joanne refers to at the start of the homily. This was the prelude for the start of the morning's worship service which included Silvia Ruth's baptism! The text for the day is John 3:1-17, telling of an encounter between Nicodemus and Jesus. Questions and curiosities filled the exchange, as well as the delightful good news of God's great love for all the world. Have a listen...
