“Marginalia” are the marks you scribble around the border edges of a book – you know the comments, jokes, critiques, and doodles sure to drive any librarian crazy. This fall, Redeemer launched a Sunday morning learning series by the same name. Think of it as a kind of Sunday School for grown-ups.
Sing in the Waiting Room
You know Advent has come around again once you hear the telltale melody of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” You might not know that the full hymn contains seven verses, and that each verse begins with an ancient Jewish title (“O Emmanuel”, “O Dayspring”, “O Wisdom,” etc.) for the Messiah. By the 6th century, the Church started to sing these titles, which we call the “O Antiphons.” In this two-part series (December 1 & 8), we’ll follow these “O Antiphons” down to their roots in the Hebrew Bible, in the hope of finding our place within an ancient waiting.
To make sure anyone can attend, sessions will run twice this Sunday in the Board Room on the lower level:
- 10 AM-11 AM for folks who attend the 11:15 AM service
- 11 AM-12 PM for folks who attend the 9:30 AM service
More information and a list of all sessions is available here.
