I’ve been busy updating The Great “O” Antiphons programs which were last updated in 2015 A.D., just after my retirement from pulpit ministry. Since then I’ve learned a few new tricks and acquired many more images from the archives of the Western and Eastern Church traditions. As viewers will have noticed, the style of AIC presentations has evolved since the launching of The Anglican Internet Church on the Web. So far in 2018 A.D. I have updated our videos for Epiphany. Gesima (Pre-Lent) and Lent; expanded available offerings for Good Friday; and launched new series for the Easter, Trinity and Advent seasons. I’ve completed the slides and script for a new 2-episode Christmas series, which will be available in October; and I am revising The Twelve Days of Christmas series, also with new slides and a revised style, with the revised version to be released in early November.
The Great “O” Antiphons program for the last seven days in Advent will remain a 7-episode series. It will include new illustrations, including the 14th C. Christ image above and the David graphic at left. I’ve made the style consistent with the format used for the new and revised programs mentioned above, which reflect capabilities of iMovie for the Mac (vs. the iPad version).
The 2018 A.D. edition will also include new Voice and Response contributions by the members of a local church. These will be heard in the closing response to each of the seven Antiphons and in the closing Antiphons for Christmas Eve.
The introduction of all these remaining revised versions during the months of October and November will mark the completion of the AIC Seasonal Videos for each of the seasons on the Anglican Church Calendar. There will now be teaching videos, written primarily for the Laity but also useful for Clergy, for every Sunday in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. I hope these will prove useful for understanding the meaning of, and appreciating the spiritual beauty of, traditional Anglican worship.
As always, thank you for your interest in and support for this Internet-based ministry. May God bless you in all that you do in His Name. Amen. Glory be to God for all things! Amen!
