A Gift for Christmas Eve

The artwork on the cover of this week’s worship bulletins for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at St. Thomas’ Parish is a nativity painting by the contemporary Chinese artist He Qi. The video below is the first movement of the choral composition, “Touch,” a 3-movement multi-media work for chorus and chamber orchestra based on the paintings of He Qi by Allan Robert Petker that premiered just last fall. The “Prayerful Creed for Christmas Eve” at our 7:00 p.m. Saturday evening Holy Eucharist is based on the text of this work.
