Luminarias - lots of them. They were at the entrance to the parking lot, down the center of the parking lot, and lining the sidewalks leading to the church. Next year: youngsters to bend over and light them!

We sang nine hymns (with alto harmony), had frankincense, real bread, and new visitors who found us with Google. It was a lovely time of worship and fellowship.
A very blessed Christmas (all twelve days of it) to one and all!
O God, you have caused this holy night to shine with the brightness of the true Light: Grant that we, who have known the mystery of that Light on earth, may also enjoy him perfectly in heaven; where with you and the Holy Spirit he lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
