Each year on Christmas Eve we get together to celebrate with Buddy's family. We have dinner and then end the evening with a huge gift exchange. This year we wanted to evening to reflect something a little deeper than just food and gifts. So, we all met at church first for a beautiful candlelight and communion service. What a beautiful and holy night. I wish I had taken pictures of the service. Sean took communion with his daddy. Lily participated for the first time. After Holy Communion, the entire congregation held candles as they were lit one by one. I hope this will become a tradition for us for years to come.
