Advent & Christmas ~You Are Invited!
Peace Light Ceremony ~ December 18, 4:30 pm
The Peace Light is an international movement. It passes light lit by candle or oil lamp from the eternal flame that burns in the grotto in Bethlehem where Jesus was born – now marked by the Church of the Nativity. Our Peace Light Ceremony is an opportunity to share a commitment to being peace-makers in our selves, families, community, and the world, in the way of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Each year the light is carried from Bethlehem to Austria and New York City on an Austrian Airlines flight. From there, the flame is distributed through church groups and children’s groups across Europe and North America. In the US, many Scout groups help with the distribution of the Peace Light and its message of peace for all people, regardless of religious affiliation. The Peace Light is intended to be carried into homes and places of worship, and kept burning through Christmas Day as an expression of peace. The ceremony at All Saints’ will include the story of the Peace Light, songs, readings, and prayers.
Those who wish to take the Peace Light home with them should bring a lantern or glass-enclosed candle, and sturdy container for the lantern for their car. The service will last about 45 minutes, and the Church will be open until 6 pm for anyone who wishes to receive the Peace Light but is unable to come to the ceremony. All are welcome at this community event. Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Cub Scouts who attend are invited to wear their Scout uniforms.
