This week is the Cantata, which is called ‘The Promise of Light.’ It is also ‘I am the Resurrection and the Life’ from John 11:17-27. So our heart prep needs to focus on Jesus as the light and Jesus as the life.
Congregational singing will include:
Angels from the Realms of Glory
I couldn’t really find a version of ‘It Came Upon the Midnight Clear’ that did everything I wanted. So here are three:
The words and melody we sing, but missing verses
Partial re-write by Kutless – pretty nice
Melody re-written by Sara Groves – also pretty nice
The offertory will be In the Bleak Midwinter
O Holy Night
Also, I liked the graphics on this version that Wendy Allen linked to recently.
