..............................................tune:

(congregation standing)

Invocation......................................................................................Pastor Dan Stevens Scripture Lesson:

....................................Kishon Green

Later when Jesus was eating supper at Matthew’s house with His close followers, a lot of disreputable characters came and joined them. When the Pharisees saw Him keeping this kind of company, they had a fit, and lit into Jesus’ followers. “What kind of example is this from your Teacher, acting cozy with crooks and riffraff?” Jesus, overhearing, shot back, “Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick? Go figure out what this scripture means: ‘I’m after mercy, not religion.’ I’m here to invite outsiders, not coddle insiders.”


Prayers of the People.......................................................................Judy-Ann Denton

We Present Our Tithes and Offerings Offertory:

Henry Smart................................Women’s Chorus

The Lord is my Shepherd I never shall want, for lack of His mercies, my soul shall not pant. In pleasant green pastures I daily abide, He leads me the peaceful still waters beside. My soul He restoreth and for His name’s sake, the path of true righteousness bids me to take. Yea though I pass through death’s dark valley and shade, I will not by evil be ever dismayed. The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want! For thou art my Shepherd, and with me always, Thy rod and Thy staff, are my comfort and stay. My table Thou spreadest in presence of foes, My head Thou anointest, my cup over flows. Thy goodness and mercy shall follow me still, while life’s earnest duties I daily fullfill. Till joyous my spirit shall claim its reward, and dwell ever more in the house of the Lord! The Lord is my Shepherd, I never shall want!

Doxology..................................................................................................Old Hundredth Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above, ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, begins our sermon series, . Today’s American History Lesson is about Abraham Lincoln, which teaches us about dealing with critics. Dan Stevens, our pastor for administration, hosts today’s worship and tells the children’s story. Judy-Ann Denton, whose wedding is tomorrow, presents the Prayers of the People. Her fiancé, Kishon Green, reads the Scripture Lesson. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist/choir director for today’s service. Music: As we gather for worship, we hear three pieces all titled which translates “slow rhythm.” The first piece is the second movement of Felix Mendelssohn’s first “Sonata for Organ.” The piece by J.S. Bach is the middle movement of his three movement “Toccata, Adagio, and Fugue in C Major.” Roger Nyquist’s is the only published (and completed) piece in his three piece Suite for Organ. Nyquist is a graduate of Indiana University who taught at Santa Clara University before retiring to Sacramento, California. is the most successful of the anthems by Ron and Carole Harris first published in 1979. The Harris’ are husband and wife, musicians and teachers, with more than 100 published songs to their credit. Ron has performed all over the world and has written for every ensemble from piano solo to symphony orchestra and appeared on the Tonight Show eight times to conduct the Tonight Show Band. Today, they operate the Ron Harris Music Publishing Company. (Hymn No. 606) the words of this hymn fit the theme of today’s sermon, and the words are from a speech given in 1848 by Abraham Lincoln to Congress against war with Mexico. James Russell Lowell took the speech and formed it into a poem of 18 stanzas. W. Garrett Horder took Lowell’s poem, selected sentences from the poem as he pleased, and produced the present hymn. Notice that the word occurs in each stanza. The tune, means “tune-in-a-bottle” from a mythical story of its discovery. We now know that the tune, correctly named , was composed by Thomas John Williams, a Welsh organist/choirmaster, and is a portion of an anthem titled “Light in the Valley.” was composed by the highly respected English organist, Henry Smart, (1813-1879) and is a setting of W. S. Passore’s paraphrase of the 23rd Psalm. (Hymn 492) was written by Harold Miller (1891-1966) who was a beloved Professor of music in the Seventh-day Adventist school system. In 1916, he was invited to become head of the music department at Mount Vernon Academy. From there he went to Washington Adventist University (formerly CUC) in Maryland, Southern Adventist University in Tennessee, Union College in Nebraska, and Pacific Union College in California. He had over 200 hymns published, 10 in the previous hymnal and this one in our present hymnal. (Hymn 547) is an Irish hymn coupled with the Irish tune on “Once to Every Man and Nation” (see notes from today’s first hymn) is a freestyle organ composition composed by Richard Purvis, who was the organist/choirmaster at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, California.


“How to Deal with Critics� First message in series: I. Welcome to Summer School

II. Abraham Lincoln: A Brief Biography

III. Shimei: Critic of King David (2 Samuel 16:5-14) As King David approached Bahurim, a man from the same clan as Saul's family came out from there. His name was Shimei son of Gera, and he cursed as he came out. He pelted David and all the king's officials with stones, though all the troops and the special guard were on David's right and left. As he cursed, Shimei said, "Get out, get out, you man of blood, you scoundrel! The LORD has repaid you for all the blood you shed in the household of Saul, in whose place you have reigned. The LORD has handed the kingdom over to your son Absalom. You have come to ruin because you are a man of blood!" Then Abishai son of Zeruiah said to the king, "Why should this dead dog curse my lord the king? Let me go over and cut off his head." But the king said, "What do you and I have in common, you sons of Zeruiah? If he is cursing because the LORD said to him, 'Curse David,' who can ask, 'Why do you do this?' " David then said to Abishai and all his officials, "My son, who is of my own flesh, is trying to take my life. How much more, then, this Benjamite! Leave him alone; let him curse, for the LORD has told him to. 12 It may be that the LORD will see my distress and repay me with good for the cursing I am receiving today." So David and his men continued along the road while Shimei was going along the hillside opposite him, cursing as he went and throwing stones at him and showering him with dirt. The king and all the people with him arrived at their destination exhausted. And there he refreshed himself.
