For millennia, people of faith have told stories and sung songs in thanks and praise for the love, the meaning, and the purpose we find in God. Our stories are intended to tell us the truth about God and about ourselves, making an honest appraisal of the human heart and mind. So our readings move between stories expressing the best and the worst in each of us. Likewise, our songs sing of both hunger and satisfaction, hope and despair, victory and defeat, pointing us to God’s abiding presence and affection through all life’s circumstances. Our music grounds us in our present reality and stretches us toward our unfolding hope.

This page is intended to give you a taste of both the readings and the music in Saint Mark’s public worship.
