Candle Light of Hope
This evening our church, St. James Episcopal church in Leesburg, Florida, USA, presented the beautiful music of Christmas. The music and readings shared the Christmas story of eternal hope, brought to us first by a small baby in a manger. This was the beginning of God’s plan for man to know God. It was His purpose to bring the Father’s love and forgiveness to the world. The Christmas story is the plan for redemption for the people of the world through our crucified and risen Lord Jesus. The season of Christmas is more than a “holiday”, it is the HOPE for every man, woman, young person and child.
One of the songs the choir sang, with orchestra accompaniment, was The Candle Light Carol by John Rutter. Here is another version of that music played for your Christmas pleasure by Lyceum Philharmonic. (The American Heritage Lyceum Philharmonic is an audition-only ensemble for advanced high-school-aged musicians. Students perform masterworks of the repertory alongside sacred music… conducted by Kayson Brown.)
Pass on the light of His love and His message of hope. Blessings and Merry Christmas from Boyer Writes
