Like Watchmen for the Morning

Produced by the Rev. Tay Moss of the Church of the Messiah in Toronto for the Anglican Church of Canada, Like Watchmen for the Morning is a series of video meditations meant to evoke the contemplative, longing quality of the dark watch before Easter dawn.

Through stories, poetry, images, and music, this series will take viewers on a journey through Lenten themes such as temptation, anger, sacrifice, service, and death. Each short video will focus on one theme per Sunday as well as Ash Wednesday and the Paschal Triduum.

The series will end with Easter morning joy, but not before passing through the darkness; for even in the darkest hours of the watch we may find God waiting with us in the shadows.
