The Revs. Suzelle Lynch & Joyce Palmer, with Kaleidoscope, the UUCW Worship Band
Hanukkah, the festival of light, honors miracles that happened more than 21 centuries ago, when a small band of Jews defeated one of the most powerful armies on the face of the earth—and when holy oil for the temple lamps that should have lasted only one night, lasted for eight nights. As we enter the holiday season, what miracles might we expect? Kaleidoscope plays songs today from Matisyahu and the Maccabeats.

The Rev. Suzelle Lynch & Maria O’Connor, Director of Religious Education
The age old story of the Nativity unfolds before us this morning as children and adults from our church take their places on the chancel, portraying familiar characters: Mary, Jesus and Joseph; shepherds and sheep, wise persons and angels. It’s a story full of love and joy—angels, shepherds, Wise Persons, sheep and other animals, all rejoicing! Join us today for this meaningful multi-generational service!
