10:30 a.m. Choral Eucharist (BAS, p230) for Advent 3

December 14, 2014

A service of Holy Communion in traditional language using the Book of Alternative Services. Prof. Bill Morrow to preach.  Located in the Cathedral.

Today we light the third candle in our Advent wreath, the candle of joy. This should be the easy one, because joy is all around us—in the children, the lights, the music, the gathering together. But how often do we let our preparations — or our memories — push joy to the side? Joy is like an underground spring that wells up within us, but joy is also a choice, an attitude. Like a muscle, it needs to be exercised. So today we open ourselves to joy, trusting that God has already planted it in us. All we need to do is give it care and offer it to share.

Time: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
