Welcome to Vespers for 16th December as we continue our series on Advent.
Tonight, Revd Dave Edmondson reflects on the great ‘O Antiphons’ which are traditionally prayed in the final week of Advent. ‘O Antiphons’ refer to ancient biblical prophesy regarding the Messiah.
As always, Vespers features a poem, two pieces of music, two periods of stillness, a reflection and a closing blessing. And though we draw on 2,000 years of Christian tradition and practice, Vespers is always for everyone, regardless of background or belief.
