“The Promise of his Glory”
A Journey in Music, Words and Images,
from All Saints Day (1st November) to Candlemas (2nd February)
As we were uable to run our usual sequence of Services over the Christmas period we created a sequence of music, prayer, poetry and readings from the Bible covering the entire 'Winter' season from All Saints to Candlemas, using ideas from the Liturgical Commission's publication The Promise of His Glory.
