Commemoration of St. Andrew, Apostle
November 30, 2009
The Lord be with you
Lamb of God Lutheran (LCMS) will again have Wednesday Advent services. As is our custom, we will have an half-hour service starting at 12:15 PM, for those who either do not drive well at night or desire to attend on their lunch break. During this service the liturgy is spoken and we sing only one hymn. The evening service begins at 7:00 PM, has three hymns, and the liturgy is mostly sung. For the evening service we will be using Evening Prayer, beginning on page 243 of the Lutheran Service Book. For the 12:15 service we will be using Responsive Prayer 1 (AKA Suffrages), beginning on page 282 of the Lutheran Service Book.
This year the evening services will be preceded by a Soup Supper, which begins at 6:00 PM. Following the evening service the choir will have a rehearsal.
The theme for this year’s homilies is “An Advent God – An Advent People.” The homily for the first Wednesday in Advent is titled “Coming Ones” and is based on Genesis 12:1-4.
Blessings in Christ
