I wasn’t really sure how the congregation was going to respond on Christmas Eve. I was sure praying that God would show up…
To my surprise, and no thanks to me, (thanks be to God and the Spirit!) people were really moved by the worship time.
It was a real treat to be a part of such a service where people honestly engaged the Spirit and each other in a reverence due the events celebrated that evening (the birth of Christ).
So here is a picture of the candlelit part where we were all singing Silent Night a capella.
