Advent & Christmas 2022: The Dawn Chorus
The Dawn Chorus. You know what this is even if you have never heard the phrase.
The Dawn Chorus is that time just before sunrise when birds start singing. In some places the sound can be almost overwhelming. It starts in darkness. It can wake us from sleep. The birds in the highest parts of the trees start singing first, long before light reaches the ground.
This year for Advent, we are sharing an Advent devotional focused on birds and The Dawn Chorus. (Email the church office to request a copy.) It reminds us that Advent is the Church’s Dawn Chorus. The anticipation of God’s reign of love incarnate in Jesus wakes us from our sleep. We sing a gospel song of hope, peace, joy, and love, even while we walk in darkness. And then, on Christmas, we live the good news - the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
St. Thomas offers many ways to celebrate these holy seasons through worship, fellowship, formation, giving, and service.
