CHRISTMAS is a joyous time of year when we celebrate the birth of Jesus, sent to be our Savior. We all appreciate the beauty of stained glass and the story the artist tells in its creation. The stain glass images you will be seeing today are some of the most famous in the world. This year, we have chosen text and music to tell the story that the stain glass depicts. It is a story that has a humble beginning and has been celebrated for several thousand years: truly, the greatest story ever told.   THANK YOU to the Choir, the Ringers, the Readers and all who were involved in telling this story.
