This past year was challenging on so many levels. Fear and grief overshadowed our lives amid a global pandemic, racism, and economic hardship. Yet this Christmas Season, we are reminded that God became who we are for us to grow in God’s likeness. This year, candlelight, story, and song will once again anchor us in the grace and steadfast love of God. Through carols and readings from Scripture and black poets and theologians, we will become more aware of the larger rhythm of the Christmas season and the subversive range of meanings it holds within our lives.
Celebrate with us the profound depth of the mystery of God’s incarnation in the birth and life of Jesus of Nazareth:
For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (Is. 9:6, NRSV).
