O Come Let Us Adore Him



We enjoyed this program so much last year that we decided to double up on the fun and meaning of Christmas this year. If you have Sunday afternoon free, be sure to check it out at 3pm on 12 December.

It's even better than last year.

I especially like the angels' dialogue, one of them was named Herald of course but I've forgotten the name of the other. These guys were funny with really good timing. There were a lot of pretty good singers in the large crowd scenes as well as smaller ensembles. The song that Mary sang on her heavy-with-child way to Bethlehem was very nice too and I've never heard it before. The whole thing emphasizes the incongruity of God becoming part of the "people planet" and a real baby on top of everything else that seems so unbelievable.

Emmanuel Baptist on Shiloh Road really does a good job of putting this together with nearly seamless transitions from one part to another. The choreography of the little kids was surprisingly good too. There really is a Singing Christmas Tree. And we got to sing a few good Christmas carols.

Sorry about the lack of images. It's Blogger's fault. See my other blog.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
