What Works Wednesday: Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

I can’t begin to express how meaningful a Christmas Eve Candlelight Service is to me. A community of faith gathers together to recognize the light of Christ delivered as a little baby so long ago, and to share the light of Christ with each other and then take it into the world. It is a wonderful metaphor of our Christian walk that I find incredibly renewing and unifying. If you are able, I encourage you to attend a candlelight service tonight.

    Absolutely! The Christmas Eve Candlelight Service is tied with Easter for my favorite service of the year. I wrote in my post this morning that I always insist on attending this service: “There is something peaceful about walking out of church at midnight and gazing up at the same stars that hung in the sky over the little manger so long ago – stars that dimmed in the presence of a multitude of angels bringing Good News.”

    May you and your family have a blessed, peaceful, and happy Christmas!

      It is hard to describe with words. The candle light service is something that you will have to experience to fully understand its beauty. If you know of one in your area, I would recommend going to experience it for yourself!
