Worship Notes Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, continues his fall sermon series from the book of James 1:13-18 dealing with “Temptation.” Brendon Prutzman, pastor for youth and administration, hosts today’s service. Jerry Taylor, minister of worship and music, is the organist choir/director for today’s service. As we gather for worship the Advent Ringers, under the direction of Joan Ulloth Dorgan, play music arranged by Indianapolis composer, Douglas Wagner. is a modern praise chorus cleverly accompanied by pieces of the famous by Pachelbel (Hymn No. 457) is a setting of Katherine Hankey’s great hymn set for handbells by the popular American composer, Cynthia Dobrinski. (Hymn No. 4) is a free paraphrase of Psalm 105 by Henry Lyte who was (translates, an English clergyman in the 1700’s. It is sung to the great English tune, , composed for these words by the organist at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Sir John Goss. was composed in 1968 by the San Diego composer, Stanley Drummond Wolff. The text was first found in print in 1698 by an unknown author. This anthem draws heavily on a well known German chorale, composed by Philipp Nicolai in 1599. by Miriam Webster, an Australian gospel singer/songwriter, took major sections of several Psalms and skillfully wove them together in this song. Monika Kreuzer sings with the church choir, is a graduate of KCMA and a registered nurse at Miami Valley Hospital in the Emergency Room. Loretta Cak sings with the church choir, is associate director of the Childhood Learning Center in Cincinnati. Scott Hunter is a student at Sinclair Community College taking Radiology. He also works on a Detoxification Unit at Miami Valley Hospital. (Hymn No. 606) was chosen to follow today’s sermon on Temptation. This hymn originated as a poem from President Abraham Lincoln’s speach made in 1848 to Congress regarding the war with Mexico. The poet, James Russell Lowell, used the word “truth” in every stanza. The tune, was, by legend, found floating in a bottle. is played by Grant Wareham, an 8th-grade, home-school student who is in his second year of organ lessons. This was written by Frederick Swann, who has been the president of the American Guild of Organists; the organist of the Riverside Church in NYC; and then the Crystal Cathedral in Los Angeles. Fred Swann played both the dedication recital and the rededication recital on our organ in 1971 and 2003.

Next Week, September 20, 2008 Guest Speaker: Loren Dickinson Beloved teacher at Walla Walla College speaking on relationships. Serv led by Ben Moushon and the Youth Music by the Men’s Chorus


“Marshmallow Management” Second message in series: Journey with James I. The Tantalizing Tower of Temptation (James 1:13-18) When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death. Don't be deceived, my dear brothers. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created.
