Joy to the World – A Mostly Music Service

Join us for Online Worship Service

In a momentous conversation between Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama that resulted in the publication of the Book of Joy. Rather than seeing “joy” as yet another word for “happiness,” they identified different “pillars” of joy. In our 2021 holiday worship series, exploring some of these perspectives can help us to wake up, and prepare room in our lives for new insight and new hope to enter. This is the vision of “Joy to the World,” a hymn that is over 300 years old, as it urges us to “repeat the sounding joy! ” In our times, can we lift our voices to confidently proclaim this chorus of well-being for the world? And, just for this particular season — and just for FUN — come meet “the advent wreath” in human form as an act of bringing this anticipation alive! Michael Hawkins, your Music Director, and fellow musicians produce this worship with Rev J.
