Argentine Unitarian Christians to hold first worship

If I’m reading the notice correctly, the Unitarian Christian Church of Argentina, in Buenos Aires, will hold its first worship service, for Christmas, at 7:30p.m. on December 29.

From their site, in its entirety:

Culto Navideño – Oración Vespertina
Los invitamos muy cordialmente a participar de nuestro primer culto como congregación cristiana unitaria a llevarse a cabo el próximo martes 29 de Diciembre a las 19:30 hrs en Carlos Calvo 257 (entre Paseo Colón y Balcarce), Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires.

A quick Google check shows the address is the Danish Church.

Three random thoughts:

  • While I know nothing about the minister — nor does he disclose anything, though customarily we recognize indigenous religious leadership — I have a hard time faulting anyone in Geneva bands.
  • Vespers is exactly the kind of worship I’d recommend for a new or small church having a Christmas service. It’s not too long but can scale with the judicious use of music, doesn’t need a sermon, and is less (over)wrought than Lessons and Carols.
  • My great-great grandfather was a Calvo, and perhaps a Carlos Calvo, but he was a Spaniard, not an Argentine publisher.

Blessings for them in this work.
