This year on Dec. 24th it was Advent 4 AND Christmas Eve. This is a rare and strange occurrence. At St. Anne’s, we honored Advent 4 with the story of the Annunciation at 9am, and then had our regular Christmas Eve services at 1pm and 10pm. My parishioners were good sports in that I made them wait to decorate for Christmas until after the 9am service. (I am a stickler about the “Christmas creep” in church-I mean do what you want at home, but not at church!).
Anyway, here are my 2 sermons from the 24th. They sound a bit softer than normal, as I forgot to hit the record button while I was preaching live, so I recorded them at home, and luckily no cats interrupted. Take a listen!
Thanks for stopping by!
