Today Karen McGuire and Mark Gaskill lead us in singing for the Season.  In between we had readings from Hanukkah, the festival of lights; Solstice, the celebration of stopping the sun; Kwanzaa, the secular celebration of cultural and traditional values; and Christmas, the celebration of Jesus' birth.

A CANDLE IS A SMALL THING. BUT ONE CANDLE CAN LIGHT ANOTHER. AND SEE HOW ITS OWN LIGHT INCREASES, AS A CANDLE GIVES ITS FLAME TO THE OTHER. YOU ARE SUCH A LIGHT. -MOSHE DAVIS

Then the Grinch thought of something
he hadn’t before!
“Maybe Christmas,” he thought,
doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas…perhaps…
means a little bit more!”
- Dr Seuss
