The Lord is in his holy temple;
    let all the earth be silent before him.

One of the things I’m coming to love dearly as I serve Graceview, is the quiet of Christmas morning. We have a Christmas Day service, and when I arrive at the church, no one else is there. It is a quiet drive from my condo to the church, with the streets almost empty.

 

Much of the rush of Christmas is over, and now families are gathering together, inside where it is warm. Exchanging gifts and telling stories. Making food and feasting on it.

 

Here are a few images from this morning. My heart is glad to share them with you! May your Christmas be merry and bright, and may you know the presence of the One we are celebrating.
