The Love and Light of Christmas
It’s Christmas at Unity Renaissance!
Get ready to celebrate the season with your Unity Renaissance family. We’ll be communing and connecting via holiday music, meaningful services, traditional gatherings, and of course, food! This year, our holiday events begin Dec. 1 with the classic film, “It’s a Wonderful Life.” We’ll be lighting advent candles for four Sundays starting Dec. 3, and breaking bread together at our Christmas Dinner, Friday, Dec. 15. For three Sundays, we’ll have one morning service only at 11AM: The Christmas Cantata on Dec. 17, Christmas Eve on Dec. 24, and and New Year’s Eve Dec. 31. We’ll offer our traditional Christmas Eve candle-lighting service on the evening of Dec. 24. I look forward to a wonderful holiday season with all of you!
Love, Rev. Paula
