Christmas Eve: Embodied Joy

Join us for Online or In-Person Worship Service

See additional information about this In-Person service.

On Christmas Eve, Christians celebrate the world-altering narrative of the inbreaking, indwelling, incarnation of the Holy among us. From both the Hebrew and Christian narratives, the name Emmanuel means “God with us.” In that name, we hear the human yearning for that which is sacred to become so present in our lives that peace, truth, love, and justice rise among all in the world. In times where mere human capacities seem to fail, we wonder if there is something larger than ourselves that might bring balance to what feels out-of-sorts. Do you remember the feeling you may have had when events or revelations changed your life, your outlook, your trajectory forever? It is the idea that, no matter what, there is something living within you, around you, and among you, that can sustain you for the long haul. Come explore how the animating force of life “births” within us again and again. We are planning to have our Christmas Eve service and fellowship in person this evening.
