Episode Two in the AIC Seasonal Video series, Christmas: the Nativity of Our Lord is now available in both video and podcast versions.  Episode Two is focused on the Collect, Epistle and Gospel readings for First Sunday after Christmas Day and Second Sunday after Christmas Day, plus the 17 hymns or carols of Christmas in our St. Chrysostom Hymnal and which are not in the venerable 1940 Hymnal or are arranged to different tunes.

 

Watch the video.       Listen to the Podcast.

Episode Two completes the cycle of having a teaching video for every season on the Anglican Church Calendar from the start of Advent through the end of Trinity season with Sunday next before Advent.    Videos for Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Gesims (or Pre-Lent), Lent, Easter (up to Ascension), Trinity Sunday and Whitsunday plus Whitsuntide, Trinity season are now linked from the Digital Library page with Podcast versions linked from the Podcast Archive page.  All programs are displayed in calendar order, with Advent at the top and Trinity at the bottom.  The video versions include illustrations in the form of icons, frescoes, painting, murals, mosaics, paintings, etchings, photographs, illuminations, engravings and miniatures from the religious traditions of both the Western and Eastern Churches.  In each series you viewers and listeners will find cross-references to Other AIC Resources on the same topics, key words, and phrases.

In other on-going work, I’ve been updating the Podcast Homilies series, originally produced in 2015 A.D. based on 12-minutes homilies I read at my former parish.  The revised A.D. 2018 version will include additional material plus cross-referencing to Other AIC Resources on similar topics, words, or phrases, including our Seasonal, Christian Education and Bible Study videos and our AIC Bookstore Publications.   The new versions should be available well before the start of Advent season.  Also in production are revised versions of The Great “O” Antiphons for Advent; Lessons & Carols for Christmas Eve; and The Twelve Days of Christmas series.
