Yes, There Is Good News

Date: December 29, 2019 Author: Beth Pinney

Yes, There Is Good News is a podcast of the Sunday morning worship service at Laguna Presbyterian Church. Beth Pinney (Worship Leader) gives a reflection on John 1:1-14 in this traditional service of Lessons and Carols. Joining in worship this morning is the Orange County Harp Troupe. We are graced to fill our chancel with the music of 10 harpist, our Chancel Choir, Praise Team, Organist, and congregation all participating in leading the carols. Lessons were read by members of the congregation, and pastoral staff.

It is the 1st Sunday of Christmas.

Perhaps the most famous carol service, is the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols from King’s College in Cambridge, UK. This service takes place at 3.00pm (UK Time) on Christmas Eve and is broadcast live on BBC Radio (and all over the world).

The service was created and performed in 1880 by Edward Benson, who was the then newly appointed Bishop of Truro (in Cornwall in the UK). Bishop Benson later became the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Service took place at 10.00pm on Christmas Eve in a large wooden building that was being used as a temporary Cathedral as the main Truro Cathedral was being rebuilt.

A service of Nine Lessons and Carols has nine Bible readings (or lessons), that tell the Christmas story, with one or two carols between each lesson. The Service was first performed at King’s College in 1918 as a way of the college celebrating the end of the First World War.
