The Greater Milwaukee Synod is releasing two worship videos for possible use in congregations on Sunday, December 27 and Sunday, January 3. The services will be approximately 30 minutes in length and we will share both the full videos and the individual components that may be downloaded and inserted into congregational worship videos or streamed live. A Google Drive link will be sent only to rostered ministers on Thursday, December 17, and the full videos will be made public on our YouTube channel and Facebook page the day prior to the services.
Both services will contain music, prayers, and reflections on the gospel text appointed for the day. On December 27, the service will include a conversation and reflection on the text between Bishop Erickson and Bishop Medardo Gomez of our global companion, the Lutheran Synod of El Salvador. On January 3, the service will include a similar conversation between Bishop Erickson and Bishop Elias Kitoi Nasari of the Diocese of Meru of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania.
We hope these videos will provide an opportunity for pastors, deacons, and worship leaders to have a brief respite in the wake of a busy holiday season.
