A devotional resource for

Advent

Last year, a member of our clergy Bible Study group introduced those present to an Advent devotional resource called “The Advent Project.” Developed by California’s Biola University, it is a series of meditations, with art and music works of the season, for each day from Advent Sunday through the Christmas season, ending with the Epiphany. To access it, click here: http://ccca.biola.edu/advent/ Cindy and I both used it last year and highly commend it as you pray your way through the season of joyous preparation for our Lord’s coming and birth.

Joint Advent Festival of

Lessons and Carols

Sunday, Dec. 17 at 10:30 – Christ Church, Portsmouth The joint choir of Christ Church and Trinity Church, under the direction of Music Director Brendan Battey, will lead the Shared Ministry community in a special Advent Festival of Lessons & Carols on Sunday, December 17 at 10:30 a.m. at Christ Church. The service will include the music of J. S. Bach, Claude Goudimel, Robert Powell, Thomas Hawais, Melchior Teschner, the Taizé community, and traditional and plainsong arrangements. This inspiring Anglican tradition features beautiful sacred selections from a variety of periods in church music. Each lesson is followed by a carol or other song that reflects on the lesson’s message. Unlike the Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols, this service features music of the Advent season, and places its focus on the lessons themselves, enveloped in choral music and hymns. The lessons trace the journey of humanity’s relationship with God through history. Lessons are read by different members of the Shared Ministry community. A festive reception in the Marshall Room will follow. This wonderful event is free and open to all. To encourage this as a single service for all in both churches, our service at Trinity that morning will be a simple, said Eucharist.
