Time After Pentecost — Lectionary 19 (Year C)

Old Abraham once stood out under a night sky and tried to count the stars. He was probably not the first to do so, and certainly not the last. Many and great are the stars, many and great are all the works of God. Many and lovely are the songs that give God praise. Sing For Joy features such songs this week. Join us.
