A “Note” on Hymnody
from Dr. Laura Palmer, Director of Music Ministries
“For All the Saints” was written by William How, a bishop of the Anglican church,
and published in 1864. It originally appeared with the heading Saints’ Day Hymn.
A Cloud of Witnesses. Heb. 12:1. In addition to the Hebrews scripture, the text also
reflects upon a phrase from the Apostles Creed: “I believe in…the communion
of saints.” The melody now associated with this hymn was written by Ralph
Vaughn Williams in 1906 for The English Hymnal. At first the tune was rejected as
“jazz music,” but later came to be acclaimed as one of the finest English hymn
tunes ever written.
Deadline for the next Witness is Monday,
November 10th before noon!
Readings appointed for November 9:
Joshua 24:1-3a, 14-25

Search Committee Prayer
Almighty God, we pray for the guidance of your Holy Spirit as we seek a new rector
for our church. You know our special needs and the task that lies in our hands.
Direct us in our search and give us insight to perceive the leader you would choose
for us. And we further pray, O Lord, that in this time of waiting we may all devote
ourselves afresh to your service, so that nothing will be lost of the faithful work
of the past, but rather that it may be brought to a rich harvest in the years to come.
This we ask in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Char DeWitt, our guest speaker, for Consecration Sunday.
Char currently is the Gift Planning Officer for Nebraska/SW
Iowa Region of the American Red Cross. She has served the
Episcopal Church Foundation and the Diocese of Kansas as
their Stewardship and Planning Giving Officer. She currently
attends Trinity Cathedral in Omaha. Please give her a warm All
Saints welcome. Thanks, Char, for being with us today for our
First Sunday Food Offering
“...just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and
built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with
thankfulness.” Colossians 2:6-7
We are strengthened in faith and overflowing with thankfulness as we
continue to receive your generous donations of food for those in need!
Many thanks

“Together, we can partner to build a world that is more godly and more humane…
a holy, whole, and healed place for all God’s creatures.”
