When: 
1:00 pm, October 08, 2017
Where: 
  • Trinity Church
  • Manning Room

The psalms included in the current Book of Common Prayer have become a standard with others adopting the  Episcopal version for inclusion in their worship books and services. Trinity parishioner and poet J. Chester Johnson, who was a member of the drafting committee for the retranslation of the Episcopal psalms and is one of only two surviving members, has written Auden, the Psalms, and Me, published in September, 2017 by Church Publishing of the Episcopal Church, in response to numerous requests over the years. He will discuss the book, including the contribution and role by the eminent poet, W. H. Auden, who  was also a member of the committee, and the story of the creation of the retranslation of these very special psalms.
