Chapel Report for December 5-9

In this season of Advent, our chapel theme for the week was IlluminatED, using John 1 and Isaiah 9:2 – The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

On Monday, we were treated to a skit about Mary’s experience with the angel Gabriel and the news about her pregnancy. Mary’s life changed dramatically when she accepted this call of God on her life. And Joseph’s life was altered as well as he stayed with Mary and embraced the call raising the son of God as their son.

Wednesday’s chapel was a preview of our Christmas concert on Sunday. We heard from the IMS orchestra, the chorale, concert choir and the mass choir, all led by Alisa Kandel.

Chapel on Thursday was a Christmas carol sing, led by Alisa Kandel. Alisa led us in Christmas carols as we stood in a circle facing each other with candles lit at various places in the auditorium.

On Friday, Dick Yoder Short shared with us the wonders of God’s creation from a scientist perspectives. The wonders of the universe declare the majesties of God!
