AT YOUR SERVICE - 9 JANUARY 2022
At Your Service
Sunday, January 9th, 2022 - 30 minutes
The 6th of January is the official end of the Christmas season - it finishes with the Epiphany - a feast that is celebrated in different ways, according to local customs, all around the world. In the Christian church, it is the day when we recall the 3 Kings, or Magi, following a star to find the Christ child, and is a reminder that the Son of God came to offer fullness of life to everyone - whoever and wherever you are. It's this gift of love that we must never let go - and indeed the true work of Christmas only starts when the festivities end.
This is the theme of today's programme - explored in thoughts, words and a wonderful selection of music - from Peter Cornelius's magnificent 'The Three Kings' to Moya Brennan's version of 'Love Came Down At Christmas' - and more!
And the words include some star gazing with Howard Parkin, and the late John Kennaugh, whose words are as fresh, powerful and relevant as they were 15 years ago!
