Calm and Bright 200 Years of Silent Night

Advent Series

Advent begins on December 2, 2018

“While they were there, the time came for Mary to have her baby. She gave birth to her firstborn child, a son, wrapped him snugly, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.” – Luke 2:6

This year is the 200th anniversary of the debut of “Silent Night, Holy Night.” This hymn has become the best-loved worship moment of many Christians — even those who only come to church once a year. Something mystical occurs as we light our candles and sing the hope of “all is calm, all is bright” — peace and light for the world. This worship series will celebrate the carol’s message over the entire season of Advent and highlight its call for our lives that can guide us all year long.
