  1. Galveston Advent Pilgrimage: Music From First Lutheran Church

    Among Christians of many denominations, Advent is a time of preparation for the celebration of Christmas. Our ancient Christian sisters and brothers began observing a day celebrating the birth of Jesus and over time then included a time of preparation prior to that celebration. The season known as Advent was formalized into a four-week season prior to Christmas in the 10th century. This year in 2019, the Galveston Advent Pilgrimage begins here at First Lutheran, then progresses to First Baptist Church, Trinity Episcopal, First Presbyterian, and finally to St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral Basilica.

  3. Sacrament of Holy Baptism for Bowen Richard Busking

    In baptism, our gracious heavenly Father frees us from sin and death by joining us to the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are born children of a fallen humanity; by water and the Holy Spirit we are reborn children of God and made members of the church, the body of Christ. Living with Christ and in the communion of saints, we grow in faith, love, and obedience to the will of God.

  6. Communion Music: "Bluebonnets (Julia's Song)"

    Today's special communion music was sung by Kelsey Scheuerman accompanied by Michael Popland on the guitar. (Music by Aaron Watson)

    Lyrics:
    In another time and place, Grandma would kiss my face
    Wish I could go back there again
    I'd climb up in my grandpa's lap, I'd lay down and take a nap
    That old man and me were best friends

    And one day I turned around
    Leaves are fallin', fallin' down
    Those fields were bare and brown and they were gone

    Chorus

    Long gone like bluebonnets in the spring
    We're only here for a little while
    It's beautiful and bittersweet
    So make the most of every mile
    So pack light and love heavy
    Give it all your heart and soul, so in the end
    You won't regret one thing
    Life is like bluebonnets in the spring.

    Verse

    There's so much I can't explain, Such as gravity and pain
    Still I remain, blindfolded and full of faith
    I kissed my angel girl goodbye, Still can't help but wonder why
    But I believe I'll see her again someday

    Chorus

    So, hold 'em tender, hold 'em tight
    Pray every mornin', day, and night
    That God will help you raise them right
    And don't you blink, don't blink

    Chorus

    Life can be filled full of sorrow
    Time is something you can't borrow
    So love like there's no tomorrow
    Because today could the day

    Chorus

    Like bluebonnets in the spring
    We're only here for a little while
    It's beautiful and bittersweet
    So make the most of every mile
    So pack light and love heavy
    Give it all your heart and soul, so in the end
    You won't regret one thing
    Life is like bluebonnets in the spring.
    Life is like bluebonnets in the spring.
