This full traditional candlelight service is modeled after the famous service at King's College in Cambridge. Ancient prophecies foretell the coming of a Messiah, and the Gospel accounts of Jesus' birth are illumined by choral anthems and beloved carols. During the service, lessons are read in between anthems and carols, and each lesson is read by a person representing different areas of our common life together. Hosted by The Trinity Chancel Choir, with the Smokey Mountain Brass Quintet. Free and open to the public. Nursery care provided.

Description:
For our New Year's Eve candle-light service, participants are invited to write on small strips of paper any unresolved issues, emotional wranglings, destructive habits, resentments, grudges, unhappiness that they want to release and purify. These strips will then be offered into a large singing-bowl (which will be sounded 108 times to accompany the 108 singing of the Vajrasattva mantra) and at the end of the evening, all these strips of paper will be consumed in a fire symbolizing a new beginning heralded by a new year. Please note: This event has been a very popular event for us, and space will be quite limited. So, PLEASE arrive a little early if you can. This event is FREE and open to everyone in the community regardless of race, gender identity, age, immigration status, sexual orientation, religion or ability, though donations are accepted with gratitude.
