Coming Dec. 12:
EMU’s Online Advent Greeting
“Go Tell It on the Mountain,” arranged by Perry Blosser ‘18, and performed by EMU’s choral ensemble Emulate.
Go Tell It on the Mountain…
With deep division in our country and around the world, we reflect this Advent season on the imagery of mountains, God’s unfailing love, and the joy brought by the birth of the Prince of Peace. May this recording of Go Tell It on the Mountain and the accompanying images help you reflect on how you will share God’s peace and love this season and throughout a new year.
“‘Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” – Isaiah 54:10 (NIV)
“I just want to do God’s will. And he’s allowed me to go to the mountain. And I’ve looked over, and I’ve seen the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6
