If you’ve gone through The Illumination Project, you already know all about the bonus materials. I’m talking about things like coasters, a button featuring the profile of a Russian-esque Czar, an entire sheet of gold stars, a box of matches, a better-than-a-Moleskine journal and more.
Beyond all of that, however, I hope you were pumped up by all the amazing artists you were introduced to, especially if you hadn’t already heard about them. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by so many great Portland-based musicians, painters, writers, photographers and other artists, and I’m grateful for those who worked with my father and me to film The Illumination Project so that we could inspire “light bulb moments” on the topics of life and relationships.
Since it’s almost Thanksgiving, I want to give you a gift and share one of the performances from The Illumination Project. My friends Paul, Hannah and Tim updated an ancient hymn written in the late 3rd or early 4th Century.
That’s, like, really old.
“Phos Hilaron” translates to “Hail Gladdening Light,” and was known as the “Lamp Lighting” hymn. At the time it was written, Christians in Jerusalem would gather for a tradition called, “Lighting of the Lamps.” During this ceremony, a candle from the tomb of Christ was brought forth to celebrate the Risen Lord.
Watch and have a listen.
