At Your Service

Sunday, December 12th, 2021 - 34 minutes

Welcome to Week 3 of Advent - the time which the Christian church uses to prepare for the great celebration of Christmas.
The coming of Jesus Christ as a helpless baby - a human like us - sharing our earthly life, but leading us to an everlasting life - is often likened to the darkness of our world being driven out by the light of Christ.  So it's appropriate that, at this time, we celebrate the Feast of St Lucy - Sankta Lucia - which falls on 13th December.  We do this with a short Service of Light - a partnership between Birmingham Cathedral, and the Church of Sweden - with some glorious music from the Ex Cathedra Academy of Vocal Music, with soloist Charis Burden.
And what would make someone cheerfully give away £2,000,000 - yes two million pounds?
Not a lottery win - but money that's been earned ...... we have the answer - in conversation with David Dorricott.
Plus there's a huge notice board of carol services, Christingles, concerts and more ......
Items for the notice board, and requests for your favourite hymns, are always welcome - email me - judithley@manxradio.com
