FReeper Canteen ~ Sunday Chapel ~ KEEPING THE FAITH ~ 13 January 2013
Serving The Best Troops and Veterans In The World !! | The Canteen Crew

KEEPING THE FAITH


The only survivor of a shipwreck washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.

Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the elements, and to store his few possessions.

But then one day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky. The worst had happened; everything was lost. He was stung with grief and anger. "God, how could you do this to me!" he cried.

Early the next day, however, he was awakened by the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. "How did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers. "We saw your smoke signal," they replied.

It is easy to get discouraged when things are going bad. But we shouldn't lose heart. Remember, the next time your little hut is burning to the ground ... it just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God.

Just when you think you can't take anymore ... the Lord steps in. (I'm sure everyone has their own personal testimony.)

May God bless you and keep you.

Dear God:
I ask that no Airman, Coast Guardsman,
Marine, Sailor, Soldier, Reservist, or National Guardsman
Feel alone or forgotten.

O Israel, hope in the Lord;
For with the Lord there is loving kindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
And He will redeem Israel
From all his iniquities.

Psalm 130:7 & 8

He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob - may He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Force, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our G-d from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May HASHEM cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighting men from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under their sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is Hashem, your G-d, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

G-d bless and keep your children safe, Alouette.

Already Settled

January 13, 2013

I love watching soccer, and I am a fan of the Liverpool Football Club in England’s Premier League. When the Reds are playing, it is an anxiety-filled experience for me. Because one goal or one misplay can change the game’s outcome, I feel a constant tension as I watch. That is part of what makes the games enjoyable. Recently, though, I saw a tape-delayed replay of one of Liverpool’s games. I was surprised how much calmer I felt seeing the replay. Why? Because I already knew the outcome, and as a result I was able to relax and enjoy the action.

Life is often like observing live sporting events. There are shocks and surprises, frustrations and fears, because we are unsure of the outcome. Followers of Christ can draw comfort, however, from the fact that though many of life’s situations are uncertain, our eternal outcome is settled by the work of Jesus Christ on the cross.

The apostle John wrote, “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life” (1 John 5:13). Life may present us with surprises along the way, but because of Christ’s work we can have peace. He has already settled our eternal outcome.

Faith looks beyond this transient life
With hope for all eternity—
Not with some vague and wistful hope,
But with firm trust and certainty. —D. DeHaan
Peace rules the day when Christ rules the heart.

Read: 1 John 5:10-15

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life. —1 John 5:13
Bible in a Year:
Genesis 31-32; Matthew 9:18-38

Both of my lessons today were cancelled due to illness.

Not me, the students. But I guess I would rather forgo the cash than come down with a rash. (Give up what I’m due so I don’t get the flu)

So Linda and I went yard saling instead.

Lovely!

Tell me, did Franz intend this to be Psalm 23, or did he originally write it as a paean to some faerie queen?

(Just a little joke based on some of our previous conversations! :-))

Nope. This is real. He wrote it in A-flat and set up the piano part to sound like angels’ harps. That’s supposed to be female angels singing.

You know, Like “Ave maria” originally being “The Lady of the Lake”.

(I am reminded of the Monty Python Scene in the “Holy Grail”, when the members of the workers agrarian collective question Arthur’s authority, because he claimed it as a result of the lady of the lake giving him Excalibur!)

Schubert: Psalm 92

This is written in Hebrew for a synagogue service. It has a rather interesting provenance insofar that it was thought to be lost until a few years ago.

Robert Mannheimer had the honor of being the rabbi to found the first new synagogue in Vienna in centuries. He was something of a reformer, and he chose a conservative cantor to keep his congregants happy.

Solomon Sulzer was the cantor, and he was invited to attend a Schubertiade, a party where Franz played the piano for dancing and also premiered some of his songs and other pieces. (The Schubert circle had no religious prejudices.) During a break at the party, Sulzer introduced himself to Schubert, and he sight-read Schubert’s song “The Wanderer” to Franz’ accompaniment. Schubert said it was perfect but not flawless. Sulzer sang it a second time after Schubert showed him the slight changes he wanted him to make. This was a case of two professionals at work.

Now Sulzer approached Schubert with a commission. He had tried to approach Beethoven for a piece for the opening service of the synagogue, but the composer was on his deathbed, which tends to be a bad career choice.

Schubert got the commission for Psalm 92 – but he knew not a word of Hebrew. Sulzer walked him through the words phonetically and showed him where the emphasis should be. The result could have opened a door for Schubert had he not died a year later. Death was the worst career choice Schubert ever made.

The piece was logged into Schubert’s list of pieces, but it didn’t show up until recently in a book of hymns for Jewish worship services. It’s one of the oddest corners of Schubert’s output.

I REALLY loved that low note at 4:07.

I am not used to hearing Jewish Liturgical music in a major key.

Even most Israeli Pop songs are in a minor key, or bounce between major and minor (kind of like “Blue Skies” by Irving Berlin)

“Osea shalom” is a prime example of that.

The flu seems to be everywhere. A couple at work have had it. I’m fighting tooth and nail not to catch a cold. Zicam is working very hard to help me in the fight.

And yard saling is always fun. When the season is over I’m going to start looking for a newer snow blower, and of course, something I didn’t know I needed.

Right now I’m trying to find a toaster that will take the odd shaped bread. Ours died, and its replacement from some dark recess in the garage won’t take the wider size bread...at least an inch sticks out.

Considerng the modern history of Judaism, if I were Jewish, I’d sing in a minor key too.

It’s actually a different “mode” than the natural or the harmonic minor. Even the HAPPY songs (like “Hava Nagila” (Let us Rejoice!) are written in this mode. AND it starts on the “5 Chord” LOL.

There are Jewish Scales, Hungarian Scales, Gypsy Scales, the Seven Greek Modes, and MORE! I love to play them on my Electric Guitar! LOL!

But I hear you, my FRiend. The Suffering of the Jewish people through the centuries really does inspire a “Minor Mode”.
