One of my favorite parts of Christmas is attending the Christmas Eve service at my church.
With the lights dimmed, candles soften the sanctuary, soften faces, quiet the hearts of the people who have come.
Some come harried and hassled. Others come burdened and broken. All come seeking something, seeking peace.
At my church, it’s our tradition on Christmas Eve to sing of peace and silence. As we hold candles we sing, “Peace, peace, peace on earth and good will to all.”
