St. Matthew United Church of Christ Christmas Cantata
Nov 16, 2017 9:05 AM -
The Christmas Cantata, "Peace Child," composed by Brian Dobbelaere will debut at St. Matthew United Church of Christ on Sunday, December 10, 2017 at 9:30am. Flute, violin, cello, organ/synthesizer, piano, and percussion instruments will accompany the Sanctuary Choir. The first Christmas Cantata was performed in 1964 and has become an annual tradition. "Peace Child" presents the nativity as a historical event and yet speaks to us today through powerful imagery and challenging words to remind us that the true meaning of Christmas is peace. God speaks to us in unexpected ways and calls us to be people of peace including immigrants, refugees, the poor, the homeless, and those with plenty and power. Love and peace must be present in our daily lives and in all that we do.
