A Service of Holy Communion with Commentary, Chant, and Organ Meditations on the "O Antiphons"
The Rev. Charlene M. Rachuy Cox, University Pastor, preaches and presides
All are welcome to worship Sunday morning with Holy Communion at the Chapel of the Resurrection!
God keeps the promise made to David, to give him an everlasting throne. The angel tells Mary that God will give David's throne to her son Jesus. She is perplexed by Gabriel's greeting and by the news of her coming pregnancy, but she is able still to say, "Count me in." We who know that Jesus is called king only as he is executed still find it a mystery hard to fathom, but with Mary today we hear the news of what God is up to and say, "Count us in."
Prayer of the Day:
Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come.
With your abundant grace and might,
free us from the sin that would obstruct your mercy,
that willingly we may bear your redeeming love to all the world,
for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
