The choir from Resurrection Lutheran Church, led by Dianne Humann

The traditional Lessons and Carols Advent Service in CLTS saw the chapel filled with music of joy and longing as the gathered congregation together with the choir from Resurrection Lutheran Church sang through advent hymns and choral pieces.

“Let us read and mark in Holy Scripture the tale of the loving purposes of God from the first days of of our disobedience unto the glorious Redemption brought us by this Holy Child; and let us make this chapel glad with our songs of praise.” Such was the admonition that led the members of the seminary community as well as Christians from the surrounding congregations to welcome the coming Christmastide with Scripture readings and hymns on the 6th of December.

The following day, true to the exhortation of the hymn “Go tell it on the mountain, students and staff visited the Shaver hospital across the street, bringing flowers and sharing the Gospel of Christmas through singing to the bedridden patients.
