Christmas Eve 2018

We did a marathon of Christmas Eve stuff today, but tomorrow will be laid back.

First, we went to the Community Dinner at Radiant Church. They served over 450 people (which included something like 110 meals delivered to shut-ins). Om is in the green sweater and Joshua is across from him.

Then, we stayed for the first part of the service at Radiant. You can deduce from the decor that this is more modern, but tonight they held the volume down to a level I can tolerate and actually sang some carols.

Then we went over to the Methodist Church. I like their evening service. Also, the bell choir plays. Again, I was only watching this time, but I have lots of friends there. They played two of my favorite songs. I just wanted to get up and play too!

The choir sang "One Small Child." I haven't heard that for a while, so it was nice.

And of course, ending with Silent Night sung by candlelight.

A wonderful calming way to end the day.
