The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. – Luke 2:20
It is a wonderful Christmas Day! Rebekah and I wish for all of you a very merry and blessed Christmas. Or, like my granddaughter Beks epitomizes, Very Merry, Very Bright!
So here are a few photos from Christmas Eve at WFPC, an amazing celebration of joy and passion for following Jesus. I have attended churches with multiple Christmas Eve services before, but here we don’t run through the same service several times, each one is 100% unique.
Kids’ worship was a hoot. Lessons and carols at 7:00 was the most beautiful I have experienced in years. Communion at midnight was the perfect end to the day.
So I have no words for you to read today, just a few photos and the promise of more when I can actually come up with a few consecutive minutes to write.
