I lift up my eyes to the hills — where does my help come from?

My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.

We wish a warm Walla Walla welcome to each worshiper and welcome you to the quieter, more relaxed rhythms of summertime in the beautiful Walla Walla valley. Gina Lincoln shares her singing talents, and Schuan Carpenter leads the praise band. Please join me in thanking them and all of our musicians.

Our prelude is the first of eight Little Preludes and Fugues. These pieces have long been attributed to the great baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), but not without controversy. Their brevity and simplicity are what we would expect for works intended for students. But if students used them they should exist in multiple sources and, unlike other compositions by Bach, these come to us in only a single manuscript source. Some scholars have pointed out style traits unknown in other Bach works and, for instance, the large number of descending SATB fugal expositions and a general fugal style more characteristic of composers from south Germany. Many composers have been suggested as the author of these works, including Johann Pachelbel,

J. K. F. Fischer, J. L. Krebs and Bach’s eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann. In the end, it doesn’t really matter to me who wrote this good music from which I derive benefit and pleasure. In the absence of conclusive contrary evidence I continue to attribute these nice pieces to J. S. Bach.

As you prepare your heart to worship God I invite you to ponder some famous words. The author of these words may, or may not, be the apostle Paul.

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen… [and] without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
– Hebrews 11:1,6

-Kraig Scott
