Christmas Eve

Clergy prepare for the Christmas Eve service
On a cold clear Tuesday night 60 people in a Foster City Episcopal church joined millions around the world in celebration of a blessed event that occurred two thousand years ago.

It was That Event that triggered all the gift-shopping, package-mailing, card-writing, tree-decorating, party-organizing, and family-gathering that absorbs the month of December in 21st-century America. For a few hours the worshippers set aside the concerns of the world and sang of a newborn baby, joy, hope, and heavenly peace.
