Bulletin Announcement (on the insert page): Music This Morning: The tune of the handbell Offertory this morning, King’s Weston, is most often associated with the text to the hymn At the Name of Jesus (264). The second stanza features a unique feature where the tune is played both forward and in retrograde (backward) at the same time. Composer Matthew Crompton captures the joyful expectation of the hymn’s fourth verse with a fiery rhythm and escalating intensity. You are invited to meditate on v. 1,2,4 of the hymn text.
