Yesterday afternoon my parish, the town of Concord and untold numbers of people lost a fine Christian man, Marshall Neilson, who had been battling leukemia since January. With his wife and three young children and Marshall's extended family and wide, wide circle of friends, we pray for God's consolation and grace to strengthen us in these difficult days.
Here's a setting of Psalm 23 that brings me a measure of peace...
The Lord is my shepherd, Therefore can I lack nothing, He shall feed me in a green pasture And lead me forth beside the waters of comfort, He shall convert my soul, And bring me forth in the paths of righteousness, For his name's sake, Yea, though I walk through the Valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, For thou art with me, Thy rod and thy staff comfort me, Thou shalt prepare a table before me Against them that trouble me, Thou hast anointed my head with oil, And my cup shall be full, But thy loving kindness and mercy Shall follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell In the house of the Lord, forever.
