Please join me in thanking the students of I Cantori who share their music with us. The words of the offertory are from Matthew 18:19-20, sung in Spanish. As you prepare your heart to worship I invite you to meditate quietly on this passage.

"Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

-Kraig Scott
