Longing for the Light

In its quiet stillness, the season of *O come, Emmanuel* reminds us of God’s call to wait: to wait for the Light in the darkness; to wait for His plan to be revealed; to wait for the source of our great comfort and joy.

On Sunday, Dec. 16, at 5:00pm, Christ Church Music and Arts will take us into the darkness. Into the waiting. Into the longing. 

John Purifoy’s stirring cantata *Longing for the Light* presents the ancient dramatic service of the *O Antiphons* in contemporary language and a modern musical setting to make it more specific to our present need for the Light of the World.

Tickets are $5, and all proceeds benefit the Norcross Co-Op. A festive reception will follow the 55-minute program. Children’s Advent activities will be available during the program. Drop your children (ages 3 and up) in the Chapel Room for stories and art activities. The children will come into the Nave for the last 10 minutes of the performance.

Contact the church office today for tickets. (Pay at the door if you like; but please reserve your seats ahead of time!)
