Worship Connect for Dec. 13, 2009

Hello everyone,

Rory here again with what’s happening this Sunday at the 7 pm service. First, I’ll point out that this Sunday the worship team is performing Sufjan Stevens’s version of O Come, O Come Emmanuel.  (You can listen to Sufjan’s version right here. It’s one of those weird YouTube videos that only has audio then just has some weird picture for the video. Whatever works I guess.) We’re also lighting the third Advent candle–the candle of joy, the joy we have in the birth of our king.  Incidentally, if you, like me, are using Google to double check the meanings of the Advent candles, you might notice that every website agrees that the third candle is the candle of joy, but each website gives a different reason for why exactly we’re to be joyful. My point: God, in coming to earth, gave us so many reasons to be joyful. Thankfully, we don’t have to pick just one. See you on Sunday! (I’ll be toward the back.)

    I loved that song we sang last night about how love will win. Which one was it and who sings it? Awesome service. God be praised.

    Thanks for you comment! The song was “Love Wins” by The Robbie Seay Band. They are a really great band and wonderful worship leaders.
