Christmas: We Tell this Story
By Kent French
December 22, 2022 - 9:58am
For the first time in three years, we will gather in person in our sanctuary for Christmas Eve. We will hear the familiar lessons, sing the carols, take in the anthems and music that Susan and all our musicians have lovingly prepared, and re-light the candles.
It will be a joyous re-gathering. One that we can no longer take for granted as par for the course. One we can savor even more deeply.
I look forward to re-telling this story with you, remembering its radicalness, the ways that God and angels moved among ordinary people, startling them with a crazy plan and changing their lives and the course of human history forever.
On Christmas Day, we will hold worship ON ZOOM ONLY, at 11am, followed by a brief online coffee hour. I hope you will hop on and join us from the comfort of your own home, for this now-familiar technological shift. If you’re looking for an opportunity to worship somewhere in person, we encourage you to visit our ministry partner common cathedral at Brewer Fountain on Boston Common at 12:30pm on Christmas Day.
Above all, we wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
