Christmas Cantata

Heaven's Child by Pepper Choplin

Sunday, December 13, 11 a.m.

Heaven's Child

You won’t be surprised to find out that making music is one of my favorite ways to celebrate the season.  The birth of Christ is so mysteriously wonderful that I find listening to and making music to be a significant way to express this mystery and beauty.  The choir has been hard at work, rehearsing notes, practicing tempos, dynamics, and phrasing so that on December 13 they can worship and lead in worship through song.  You won’t want to miss worship on December 13 as we prepare to welcome “Heaven’s Child.” 

Heaven’s Child is a transforming presentation, taking us deeply into the mystery and awe of Christmas and into the eternal significance of that perfect union of heaven and earth—the divine and the humna.  It was then, at the first Christmas that “the nature of God was fused with the human heart, and the fruit was perfect.  And the Master Composer, Who at that moment breathed the song of Christmas into existence now stirs the music in all of us to once again celebrate the coming of heaven’s Child.”  Like Simeon, we have seen the truth of the Child, and the promised salvation, and we may now live forever with peaceful hearts and restored souls.  Al of this is ours, from “Heaven’s Child.” — Brittany
