“Church on the Hill, Standing on the Word”
December, 2018/January, 2019

It comes every year and
will go on forever. And
along with Christmas
belong the keepsakes
and the customs. Those
humble, everyday things
a mother clings to, and
ponders, like Mary in
the secret spaces of her
heart. – Marjorie Homes

Silent Night, Holy Night, All is Calm, All is Bright
Jesus Lord at Thy Birth

In 1818, a touring group of actors was performing in towns throughout the Austrian Alps. On December 23 they arrived at Oberndorf, a village near Salzburg, where they were to re-enact the story of Christ’s birth in St. Nicholas Church. Unfortunately, the church organ was not working and would not be repaired before Christmas. Some say that mice were the reason the organ was not working; others say that moisture had seeped into the organ chamber and rusted the pipes. Because the church organ was out of commission, the actors presented their Christmas drama in a private home.
After witnessing that Christmas presentation of the birth of Jesus, pastor Josef Mohr decided to take a different and longer way home to have some time to reflect and meditate on the beautiful Christmas story. That longer path took him up over a hill overlooking the village. From that hilltop, Mohr looked down on the peaceful snow-covered village. As he gazed down at the glowing Christmas-card scene, he was reminded of a poem he had written a couple of years ago. That poem was about the night when angels announced the birth of the long-awaited Messiah to shepherds on a hillside.
Josef Mohr decided those words might make a good carol for his congregation the following evening at their Christmas eve service. The one problem was that he did not have any music to which that poem could be sung. So, the next day Mohr went to see the church organist, Franz Gruber. With his guitar, Gruber had managed to compose a musical setting for the poem in only a few hours. The pastor and organist now had a Christmas carol that could be sung without the organ. On Christmas Eve, the little Oberndorf congregation heard Gruber and Mohr sing their new composition to the accompaniment of Gruber’s guitar. And, “Silent Night, Holy Night” was born!
Weeks later, well-known organ builder Karl Mauracher arrived in Oberndorf to fix the organ in St. Nicholas church. When Mauracher finished, he stepped back to let Gruber test the instrument. When Gruber sat down, his fingers began playing the simple melody he had written for Mohr’s Christmas poem. Deeply impressed, Mauracher took copies of the music and words of “Silent Night” back to his own Alpine village of Kapfing. There, two well-known families of singers – the Rainers and the Strassers – heard it. Captivated by “Silent Night,” both groups put the new song into their Christmas season repertoire.
The Strasser sisters spread the carol across northern Europe. In 1834, they performed “Silent Night” for King Frederick William IV of Prussia, and he then ordered his cathedral choir to sing it every Christmas Eve.
Twenty years after “Silent Night” was written, the Rainers brought the song to the United States, singing it (in German) at the Alexander Hamilton Monument located outside New York City’s Trinity Church.
In 1863, nearly fifty years after being first sung in German, “Silent Night” was translated into English. Eight years later, that English version made its way into print in Charles Hutchins’ Sunday School Hymnal. Today the words of “Silent Night” are sung in more than 300 different languages around the world.

This year we celebrate 200 years of the most popular, well-known, and favorite Christmas carol of all time – “Silent Night, Holy Night.” Join us as we reflect on the simple yet profound message of this beloved Christmas carol.

Wishing You a very Merry Christmas, and a Blessed New Year!
Pastor Richard A. Nelson

PLEASE NOTE: Pastor Nelson will be away from December 26 through January 2. Please call the church office with any pastoral needs. Pastor David Reinwald of Kissinger’s Church will be providing pastoral care while Pastor Nelson is away.

THE WONDER OF CHRISTMAS
-Ron Berris

The Almighty became an infant,
The Shepherd became a lamb,
The Judge took our sentence,
The Lord became a man,
The Invisible became visible
The Eternal stepped into history
To make His own again.
