Online Worship: Christmas Eve—The Night When Everything Changed

When the angels appeared in the sky to the shepherds, their song was a song of peace for all humanity. So where is this peace, we ask? In a world of turmoil and division, we need peace more than anything. The Christmas story reminds us that through Jesus, God began setting the world right, healing all rifts, mending all brokenness, and sowing the seeds of peace. Through Jesus, God came to dwell as one of us.

This worship service includes Communion as an extension of the table at St. Peter’s on Friday, December 24, 2021. The Bible readings for this worship service are Isaiah 9:2-7 and Luke 2:1-20.
