SERVICE MUSIC 

From the time of their first publication, the organ symphonies of Charles-Marie Widor (1844-1937) have been recognized as masterpieces. Widor called these works symphonies because of their several movements and because of the symphonic nature of the French romantic organ for which they were written. The Symphony No. 5 and the “gothique” (IX) seem to have been Widor’s favorites. The popularity of the “Toccata” from No. 5 is practically unparalleled in the organ repertoire. It is a toccata in the true sense of the word, with brilliant figuration punctuated by full chords and a melody in the pedals. The organ postlude is a truly celebratory piece for Easter. 

 

EASTER BANNERS 

The Easter banners made of batik fabrics represent the life and light of Christ rising from death to eternal life on Easter morning. These two banners were made identically to bring emphasis and thanks to Christ Jesus and the Holy Power of God on Easter Sunday. The titles of the banners are: Blessings of Easter: I am with you always to the end of the age, and Alleluia give thanks to the risen Lord. 

 

THIRD THURSDAY THEOLOGY 

There will be no Third Thursday Theology group this upcoming week. We will resume next month. More information will soon follow. 

 

TAI CHI 

The slow movements of the ancient art of Tai Chi Chaun. This mind/body exercise has been shown by western research to improve overall health while increasing strength, balance and flexibility. Please wear loose, comfortable clothing. The introductory class resumes on Tuesday, April 18 from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. There is no charge for the class, but donations will be encouraged. For more information, contact Bob Wells, 404.786.4650; wellscom@comcast.net
