And Now a Word from Our Neighbors at Church of the Advent at the foot of Beacon Hill, January 15th
Organ Recital, Solemn Evensong & Benediction, and E&B Talk featuring Rev. Ingo Dutzmann (applause).
Our monthly service of Evensong & Benediction at the Advent resumes next Sunday, Jan. 15.
The evening begins with an organ recital at 4:30 by Katelyn Emerson (good friend of FLC), who will play the complete Symphonie Gothique of Charles-Marie Widor, based on Gregorian chant themes from Christmastide. “Evensong & Benediction” follows at 5:00, featuring the Tallis Latin Evening Service, Oculi omnium by Byrd, and Howell’s setting of “Behold, O God, our defender.”
Immediately following E&B, head downstairs to Moseley Hall for a light supper and a talk presented by our friend and neighbor in the Back Bay, Pastor Ingo Dutzmann of First Lutheran Church, “Martin Luther, Western Civilization’s Indispensable Man: How his courage of conscience helped define our guarantees of personal liberty!”
On October 31, 1517, a monk named Martin Luther posted his “Ninety-five Theses” to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, German, lighting the match that sparked the Protestant Reformation. The Advent will observe the 500th anniversary of that momentous event all 2017 in forums like Entr’acte and a Luther reading group. Pastor Dutzmann agreed to kick off the year by speaking at our first E&B Talk.
Evensong and the supper is a perfect way to cap off the Lord’s Day, particularly when we share them with our Lutheran friends in Boston, so please come join us! 30 Brimmer Street, Boston.
