The Lord is my Shepherd

The First United Methodist Church of Lubbock, Texas is one of the great "cathedrals" of United Methodism. Not in the technical sense, but like many of the Old World cathedrals, this congregation actively seeks to worship God "in holy splendor" in a large and beautiful gothic sanctuary, and they support numerous ministries, including a solid music ministry.

The video below comes from a Sunday service of worship as the choir sings the ancient and beloved words of Psalm 23. This Psalm resonates deeply with some of the other Scriptures, such as Psalm 100 and Ezekiel 34 that are set forth in the lectionary for the final Sunday of this Christian year, celebrating the Reign of Christ the King on Nov. 20th. In the video below one gets a glimpse at some of the best of our classic United Methodist worship arts and traditions, from the architecture to the vestments and paraments, from the stained glass to the wonderful choral music. All of this "holy splendor" calls the attention of our hearts to Him who is glorious Beauty itself.
