The early service featured a dramatic reading by five people, lots of music led by Kevin, an absolutely stunningly cared for and prepared sanctuary space and, as always, an original story written and told by Pastor Rachael. This year’s story was entitled, “How Matilda, a Minnesota Moose, Saw the First Christmas.” Here are a few photos.
