At the reception following this year’s Advent Lessons and Carols service we will recognise Founding Professor Roger Humann’s 80th birthday (18 May) and Emeritus Professor Jon Grothe’s 75th birthday (30 Nov.).

The seminary faculty, staff, and students will be joined by Resurrection Lutheran Choir, under the direction of Dianne Humann. As members of the seminary community read lessons from the prophets that prepare for Christ’s coming, the congregation and choirs sing beloved Advent hymns and carols. The service culminates with the announcement of the Christmas Gospel, by which the students anticipate Christmas just before leaving for the holidays. Please join us for this service of Word, music, prayer, and praise.

(The service, unfortunately, will not be live streamed this year.)
