Tomorrow at Our Savior we will celebrate a traditional Anglican event: A Service of Nine Lessons and Carols. This is a lovely way to tell about God's saving acts in history. It begins with the Genesis story of the fall of Adam and Eve, travels through the prophecies that a Savior would come, leads us into the Gospels where we hear once again the stories of the birth of Jesus, and finally into the Prologue to John's Gospel -- the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.
Interspersed between readings will be the carols of Advent and Christmas - the coming of Jesus the first time and his expected second coming in power and great glory. At Our Savior we don't have a separate choir to sing these hymns, so Lessons and Carols is not a spectator activity. We are all the choir, so please come and join in the singing.
