Reflections on Christmas Eve services
There were angels, wisemen, and — as has become a tradition at our church — a giraffe disguised as a camel. The Family Service on Christmas Eve at the Cape Elizabeth United Methodist Church was indeed a community gathering; a coming together of younger and older generations of families, some whom have worshiped with this congregation for decades, others for only a few months.
But as we rejoiced, it was a fellowship of unity — families and friends brought together by candlelight to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
