Dear <<First Name>>
We leave David, for a while, in his newly established capital having transferred the religious centre to Jerusalem to consolidate his rule and now turn to some new, possibly, to you Advent hymns. We hope that by looking at these now they may help refresh worship in the Advent season.
Over the time we’ve been producing the Daily Devotions we have, from time to time, reflected on hymns from the Reformed Tradition, on Advent and Christmas hymns as well as Eastertide material. We thought we’d take a different approach and look at some, possibly, new to you Advent hymns early on and hope they may help in local churches that might be looking for different material this advent. Producing these in November may seem odd but we think the hymns are worth looking at any point of the year and, this way, they may inspire those who plan worship for Advent. We will reproduce the words, where possible, provide links to the music and comment on them and the Biblical verses that inspired the writers.
Remember, if you would prefer to receive the Devotions as booklets either for your own use or for people in your congregation who might prefer them in a paper format, you can sign up to receive them here. They are produced a couple of months in advance. Previous booklets are on the Devotions’ Website here.
with every good wish
Coordinator, Daily Devotions from the URC Project
