This Sunday Morning
Getting up early on a Sunday morning is a blessing, especially today. Today we celebrate the Advent season with our annual Festival of Lessons and Carols Divine Service. Our choral friends from Saint Paul’s in Closter will join us for this wonderful time of hearing the Word and responding in song, all of which is wrapped up in a nice bow as we receive the Supper of Christ’s body and blood for the forgiveness of sins.
A wonderful Sunday is on tap at Saint Matthew’s!
This morning, our joint choirs will practice beginning at 8:30, and since I am singing, I have to be there. Somehow, I have to skip out on part of the practice in order to help with our Sunday School Christmas program practice. And in between both, I have to meet with a member in my office (don’t worry, this is not a bad meeting). At 10am, our Divine Service kicks off. It is surely a busy morning on my docket.
