On Sunday, December 18th, 2016, at 7:00 in the evening, you are invited to Lansdowne Baptist Church's annual Christmas Candlelight Service. This inspiring service includes a service of lessons and carols. The lessons span both the Old and New Testaments. Follow the story of God's love for humanity, a love so strong that nothing we could do would destroy it, from the very beginning through the joyous birth of Jesus, the Messiah, who would show us the way home to God and declare in word and deed how much we are all beloved children of God. Following the lessons and carols is a truly unique message during which the light of Christ is shared throughout the church sanctuary, taking a single point of light at the pulpit out throughout the gathered people, sharing Jesus' love and message until the sanctuary, once dark, is lit by candles. By that soft glow, Silent Night is sung to end a beautiful, inspiring, and memorable evening sure to give you the real Christmas spirit. Come and join in this profound moment of worship and peace. Come and share our joy.

Given the news of late, here is an extremely appropriate hymn. Since hymns are prayers is song, it is also an appropriate prayer for all of us, every day.
Appropriate to this prayer in song are the following verses from Romans 12: https://lansdownebaptistchurch.blogspot.com/2016/06/guide-to-living-with-others-in.html
A hymn for the troubled soul is also appropriate here: https://lansdownebaptistchurch.blogspot.com/2014/03/be-still-my-soul.html

Hymns can speak to us in our darkest moments. They are prayers set to music. At times, when you know the story behind the writer of a hymn, the declaration of faith it contains can be truly, deeply moving, as in the case of this old standard, "It Is Well with My Soul." May you find some consolation in this prayer set to music today if you grieve. We stand by you and pray for you in your difficulty and your pain. Please know that you are not alone.
God bless you.
