December 24, 2017: Christmas Eve Service

Posted on : Dec 21st, 2017 | By | Category: This Sunday's Service

Please join us

for our

Christmas Eve Candlelight service,

Sunday night

8pm.

(Note: We will NOT have worship on Sunday morning this week – only Sunday evening!)

This, Tonight, Is the Meeting Place

This, tonight

is the meeting place

of heaven and earth.

For this, tonight,

is the stable

where Light came down

and Love came alive

and Peace began its reign.

There aren’t many here of high station

not many holy,

not many innocent,

not many worldly wise,

not all familiar faces.

But if tonight

only strangers met,

that would be enough.

For Bethlehem was not the hub of the Universe,

nor was the stable a platform for famous people.

In an out-of-the-way place

Which people never thought to visit ~

there God kept and keeps the Promise,

there God made flesh God’s love for us.

from ‘Cloth for the Cradle’ ~ The Iona Community
