Lighting the Christ Candle

Tonight we light the Christ candle, which represents the light Jesus brought into the world. A light that darkness is never able to overcome.

John 8:12

May We The People follow Him always.

Have a blessed Christmas Eve.

A Christmas Eve Wish

May your Christmas Eve be filled with peace, comfort and joy whether you are surrounded with family and friends or spending a quiet night at home. At some time tonight take a few moments and ponder this verse from “O Little Town of Bethlehem.”  (Sarah McLachlan’s version from her Wintersong CD )

How silently, how silently 

The wondrous gift is given! 

So God imparts to human hearts

The blessings of His heaven. 

No ear may hear His coming, 

But in this world of sin, 

Where meek souls will receive him still, 

The dear Christ enters in.
