Life @ Morningside for June 7, 2015

 

WORSHIP THIS SUNDAY 

Welcome to worship at Morningside Presby-terian Church. Baron Mullis, Senior Pas-tor, will be our preacher, and Drew Stockstill, Associate Pastor, will be our lit-urgist. Please complete the information in the Friendship Pad at the end of the pews and pass the pads down and back again during the Con-cerns portion of worship. Worship notebooks and books for children are in the library. Nursery for infants and toddlers is in Room 105; 2-3 year olds are in Room 012. Children ages 2-10 are invited to leave after the Peace of Christ for special classes: Fours and fives in Room 011; K-2nd graders in Room 001; 3rd-5th graders are in worship. 


SERVICE MUSIC 

Edward Elgar (1857-1934) composed Enigma Variations between 1898 and 1899, and it is based on hidden themes. These themes portray his friends and the work is dedicated to “my friends pictured within.” Variation IV, entitled Nimrod, is an affectionate portrayal of Augustus J. Jaeger, a music editor employed by the Lon-don publisher Novello and Company. Jaeger in-fluenced Elgar and inspired him to pursue his ca-reer as a composer. The title Nimrod comes from the name of Noah’s great-grandson which means mighty hunter. Augustus’ surname, Jae-ger, in German translates to hunter. Elgar sought to create Jaeger’s nobility in this variation marked adagio. I love this transcription as it ex-plores the full dynamic range of the organ. 


SING WITH THE CHOIR SUNDAY
