CHRISTMAS for these hard times..

What?! Christmas?! Yes, you read that right – today for worship, we are having a little Christmas. It’s Mother’s Day! And so we are looking at the passage Luke 2:1-20, which is the birth narrative in the Gospel According to Luke. I hope it will be a blessing to you and that it will feel celebratory, even though we can’t be together.

Let’s start with a little bit of prelude music, as Eric plays for us.

Bob Twynam, Clerk of Session at Graceview, has done this week’s reading:

Our first hymn is “Oh come, all ye faithful” (on the pump organ that some of you have noticed in the background of previous musical recordings from Eric!):

A litany of thanks for our Mothers on this physically-distanced Mother’s Day:

A bit of special music – the Rev. Dr. Morley Mitchell, performs “The God of the mountain is still God in the valley”:

Here is our video sermon:

And our final hymn is Once in Royal David’s City:

Until tomorrow, dear friends, may the presence of Christ comfort you in these hard times.
