More on Lessons and Carols:
In 1918, Eric Milner-White, the Dean of Kings College in Cambridge, England designed a Christmas Eve service incorporating traditional Christmas carols and hymns, with a fixed liturgy of nine scripture lessons to be read aloud. His was an adaptation of an order he discovered by the Arch-bishop of Canterbury, 38 years prior.
Each year on the evening of the Third Sunday of Advent, our tradition is to use a similar liturgy and make it our own. It has become an immensely festive and worshipful occasion, as well as an exhibition of artistry, musicianship, decoration and food.
