Over the past number of weeks, the Task Force for the Resumption of In-Person Worship has been working with leaders across the Eastern Synod to develop a new series of worship resources to support congregations during the seasons of Advent & Christmas.
Today, we are pleased to share this robust collection with you!
|Worship Resources for the Seasons of Advent and Christmas features a number of new original worship texts crafted by Rostered and Lay Leaders across the Eastern Synod. |
In addition to these liturgical texts, we are also pleased to share a number of musical resources for use during in-person or mediated worship:
+ Trevor Hicks has composed and recorded a new musical resource entitled, Lead Us Towards Christ, to enhance Advent Candle liturgies.
+ Rev. Mark Ehlebracht will be sharing musical recordings from St. Peter’s TV Ministry as they become available. St. Peter’s will also be sharing a complete service for use on the first Sunday of Christmas (Dec 27, 2020).
+ Tim McNabb, Director of Music at Resurrection, Halifax will be sharing a number of creative re-imaginings of beloved Advent hymns from Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
In addition to the PDF document attached above, all liturgical and musical resources are available for download through our BOX Resource Library. If you are not currently connected with this growing resource library, please contact Liz Zehr (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Cindy Stubbs (email@example.com) to obtain access.
Lastly, I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation to all those who participated in this project. Thank you for your gift of time and creativity!
Peace to you, as you plan and prepare!
Rev. Adam Snook
Assistant to the Bishop
