Oh, Blessed Light! Rev. Kent Matthies

Winter Solstice marks turning from dark towards light.  The wheel of fire will roll through the parking lot tonight – not hitting any cars!  St. Lucia Day celebrates the emergence of light and hope amidst the fear of dark and despair.  The shining of this light comes out of the most difficult of circumstances. We proclaim the glorious truth of this incandescent, inextinguishable light, which shines from within, and around and upon all of us.

Jess Stanforth will share some traditions of St. Lucia’s Day in her family, and we will have a special processional of the children enacting some of these traditions.
