Luke 2:41-52 / Colossians 3:12-17: His mother treasured all these things in her heart. / And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; teach and admonish one another in all wisdom; and with gratitude in your hearts sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to God.

  • all readings for the day: 1 Samuel 2:18-20, 26 • 
  • Psalm 148 • 
  • Colossians 3:12-17 • 
  • Luke 2:41-52

  • .....
    O Almighty God, you have poured upon us the new light of your incarnate Word: Grant that this light, enkindled in our hearts, may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen. (source)

    (Also, feel free to listen with me to my ever-evolving Christmastide playlist . If you're looking for sappy, even sometimes cheesy, but fun Christmas music try my Christmas Eve (for my Momma) playlist. )



    Listen to the recording of King's College Chapel's annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on BBC Radio 4 (streaming audio available for 26 more days) 
    Download the program and read along with family or friends.
