Masks and proof of vaccination required. “Cindy Lou Who and the Heart of the Holiday” The grumpy green Grinch, from the Dr. Seuss classic, did the Whos down in Whoville one colossal favor by “stealing” Christmas. When we first encounter them, the village inhabitants are caught up in their annual “Whobilation,” a crass tribute to wretched excess. That is, except, sweet little Cindy Lou Who, the moppet they consider a radical because she wants to spend quality time with her family and lift up the heart of the holiday. Cindy Lou reminds us that “Christmas doesn’t come from a store” as we rejoice and celebrate the season together in our Beacon Sanctuary for the first time in two years. Hosted by Rev. Robin, with Andy Hogg and the Beacon Choir, under the direction of Jason Drahos. Ancient and modern readings, familiar carols, a “Grinchy” dramatic vignette, Silent Night candle-lighting, and choir offerings galore! Holiday-themed sweaters and such STILL WELCOME. Thaw out your cookies and bring them along.
Come to the Post-Service Gatherings at 11 am to connect, share joys and sorrows, and reflect on the service. These will be held in person, in the backyard of the church so that we may remove our masks.
