Advent Services: The Great O Antiphons
During the holy season of Advent, as we prepare for the
coming of Christ, join us for worship on Wednesday mornings.
These midweek services will be held December 3, 10 and 17 at
7:00 a.m. in Fellowship Hall.
When we talk of Advent, the haunting melody of this
great hymn comes to mind: “O come, O come, Emmanuel…” Its
several verses reference the “Great O Antiphons”—brief texts
that were composed perhaps as early as the 7th or 8th
centuries and used in Advent worship in Western Christian
traditions. Each antiphon is another name for Jesus Christ
found in scripture (Wisdom, Adonai, Root of Jesse, Key of
David, Dayspring, King of Nations, Emmanuel). The verses all
begin with the exclamation "O" and end with a plea for the
Messiah to come.
Our Midweek Advent Services will offer time for
reflection and prayer on these meditative texts, and Holy
Communion will be served. You are invited to remain in
Fellowship Hall following worship to enjoy a light
Christmas at Trinity will be presented
Sunday, December 14, at 4 pm. Music will be provided
by all of our vocal and bell choirs and FaithX with
orchestral accompaniment. Admission is free, but
early seating is advised. A festive reception will
be held afterward. We are requesting food donations,
such as appetizers and desserts, be brought to the
kitchen by 12:00 noon on December 14. A sign-up
sheet is at the Gathering Space desk.
