Calm & Bright: 200 Years of Silent Night

Scripture:           Luke 2: 1-20

Theme:               There is something about Christmas Eve. It is hard to describe that “something” that many of us feel and it is different, to be sure, for everyone. The older we are and the more memories we accumulate, the more complex the feeling becomes. Perhaps the tendency for reflection upon one’s life and the presence or absence of loved ones on this night is why we love to hear “all is calm, all is bright.” On this night we remember the promise of God–that God would be “Emmanuel,” God-with-us forever more.
