What: 2013 Concordia Christmas Concert - “In the Bleak Mid-Winter”. Choirs, handbells and instruments combine in a beautiful setting surrounded by lights, trees and garlands.
When the world seemed at its bleakest, God sent his Son to cast away earth’s wintry darkness and filled it instead with light and hope. Heaven could not contain his love, so he created heaven-on-earth through the birth of Jesus, the Babe of Bethlehem, our Savior and Redeemer.
In the bleak mid-winter, frosty wind made moan
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter long ago.
- Christina Rossetti (1830-1893)
