Christmas Eve 2017

Christmas Eve was on a Sunday. The picture below is from our 10pm communion and candlelight service. The lighting effects by Ari Herzig were spectacular. We are grateful to Ari for bringing both their art and their technology from Boston to share with us. The clear, dark blue sky was punctuated by bright stars. And the snow was falling gently. As the sermon began to describe the scene at the birth of Jesus, and the Star of Bethlehem, a brighter star appeared and grew in size and brilliance.

At our 10 am service we had a “scripted reading” of Charles Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. You can hear a recording on the sermon page.
