On Christmas Eve, what could be more of an intersection of God’s love and grace than three wonderful worship services?!
The sanctuary was beautiful,
the children awesome in acting out the story of Jesus’ birth, the youth joyful/gifted in playing in the “band,” the special music touching, and the congregation present - all things to be thankful for!!!
And even though I left out the line that seemed most important as I prepared the sermon - “as the angel and the glory of the Lord pierced the darkness with Good News for ALL to the shepherds, Jesus pierces our darkness - the darkness of the world - with hope, peace, joy and forgiveness” - God was most present in the Word and the Meal. Thanks be to God!
All in all, a glorious Christmas Eve!
