The ADVENT Project 2020:
The Third Antiphon: O Adonai
Advent, which means "coming" or "arrival," is a time of preparation for the birth of Christ, and a celebration of God's unconditional love. Because we are participating in the Advent Project, we will have a weekly meditation on all seven verses of "O Come, O Come Emmanuel." The Advent Project proposes returning to the ancient early church practice of seven Sundays in Advent. In the ancient church the seven “Great O Antiphons” were used as the antiphons for the Magnificat at Vespers, one antiphon during each of the last seven days of Advent. They latter formed the basis for the familiar Advent hymn “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” based on a Latin hymn from the twelfth century and translated by John Mason Neale (1818–1866). Receive this weekly meditation with each of the sung verses of this beloved hymn.
CALL COMMITTEE UPDATE
At this time, the synod office is creating a list of pastoral candidates which they will be sharing with the call committee soon. We will then begin reviewing and interviewing potential candidates. We are hoping to start this next step by January if not sooner. Please continue to pray for the call committee as we continue the important work of calling Redeemer's next pastor.
