The Advent hymn “Watchman, Tell Us of the Night” lays the foundation for the Vespers readings and music. On this first Sunday of Advent, congregational hymns and readings further highlight the anticipation and preparation of the season. The Second Church Choir, Handbell Choir, flutist Jennifer Gartley, and organist Andrew Peters offer music to give listeners an opportunity to pause in the midst of the hectic holiday season.
