Wednesday Music Meditation December 16, 2020

Hello Trinity Family,

Happy belated Gaudete Sunday! I’ve been waiting for two weeks to light the third candle on my Advent wreath. This year, with all of the bad news around us, I find myself clinging to the enthusiastic hope that the third candle and Gaudete (Rejoice!) Sunday bring. So much so that, even though I was gifted four blue candles for my wreath, I tied a pink ribbon to this week’s candle to celebrate the special day. While we can’t tie a ribbon around all of our problems, we can certainly choose optimism and patience in waiting for the fulfillment of God’s promises.


For my Zoom service prelude tonight, I offer “How great our joy” arranged by Bill Wolaver. Here is the hymn text for your reflection:
There shall the Child lie in a stall,
This Child who shall redeem us all. 
How great our joy! Great our joy!
Joy, joy, joy! Joy, joy, joy!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!
Praise we the Lord in heav’n on high!


Watch, Wait, Wonder, Worship 

Wednesdays in Advent, 7 pm
During this season of Advent, we invite you to join us for a live, Zoom midweek worship each Wednesday – December 16 & 23 – at 7 pm.  Our theme will be shared by many congregations across the ELCA, reminding us that even in this time of pandemic we remain a connected church.  These are quiet, meditative services with intentional spaces of silence, readings, and song.  To facilitate your participation, we invite you to save this Zoom link (it will be the same for each Wednesday) and to print or download the pages which will serve as your worship folder each week. With the Church of every time and place we pray, Come, Lord Jesus.
The worship materials can be found HERE.
