Join us for this year's FREE Christmas Musical, A Light Still Shines, featuring the ARCC Choir and Orchestra, directed by Nicolas Ford.
Christmas is a modern day miracle of ancient origin. Two thousand years of human history have not diminished the importance nor the implications of the Incarnation. The joy of that event will resound for millennia to come. As we celebrate the antiquity of the Christmas story, we must be mindful of the significance the account of the coming of Christ has on our lives today. The Light that shone from Bethlehem, from Galilee to Jerusalem, from a rugged cross to the Father's throne; that Light still shines in the darkest night it will lead us home. The visions of a star, a stable, shepherds, wisemen, a young mother and father, and a tiny baby in a manger of hay, are still wreathed in wonder and awe. The tidings of great joy that reach to us from that time long ago in that place far away, resound with this great promise and truth… "the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned." (Matthew 4:16)
