Sunday 3. Advent: candles and kora music

The Eucharist service on 12 December, the third Sunday in Advent, had a special flavour.  At the beginning of the service the third candle of the Advent wreath was lit by children from Sunday School, who also said a prayer.

During the service  Br. François from the Franciscan community in Strasbourg introduced a new musical dimension to our worship.  He is from Togo, a student of theology and an accomplished musician who plays the kora, a stringed instrument made from a gourd and a traditional instrument in western Africa. He accompanied us musically during intercessions and at other moments in the service.
