What is it about Christmas that evokes so much interest? Even for those who are not religious, it’s hard not to get into a bit of a festive mood. The lights, the food, the decorations, the gathering of families, friends, and colleagues, all come together to make it a special time of year. This celebrative atmosphere comes from the religious origins of Christmas. It is told that 2,000 years ago God Himself sent His son into the world as a baby to be with us and then to save us. In the words of a famous Christmas Carol, “Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the Newborn King!” So on this Christmas Eve, we are going to gather to sing Christmas carols, read the Christmas story from the Bible, and enjoy some good coffee and cookies. Even if you are not particularity religious, we welcome you to join us this Christmas Eve from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in downtown Toronto at Innis Town Hall. Hope to see you there!
