A Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent
December 10, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
“The ancient people of God, the Jews, looked forward to the coming of God’s Kingdom, when there would be a new order of justice and righteousness. The early Church saw that the Kingdom had been anticipated and experienced through the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, but still prayed “Thy Kingdom come,” looking forward to a second coming and the final consummation of all things.
The pattern of this Advent service (in its four sections) reflects the season’s growing anticipation, both of the first coming of Christ and of that day when the prayer “Thy Kingdom come” is finally and fully answered.
Music by Michael Wise, Charles Wood, Aaron Copland, Alan Hovhaness, Francis Jackson, John Joubert, Judith Weir, and Melissa Dunphy.
