2021 Christmas
Candlelight Services

Sacred Night, Holy Light

Like the wise men of old, we too need to be guided by the star of life to that holy place within us where the little child we are—the Child of God—is cradled in the arms of infinite love and wisdom. –Ernest Holmes

May the light of the Sacred surround and inspire us all this Christmas. Our Christmas Candlelight Service is an opportunity to anchor ourselves in the meaning of Christmas with beautiful music, holy readings, and a candlelight ritual to remind us of our unity and what is most important.

The Mile Hi ministers, including minister emeritus Dr. Roger Teel, the Mile Hi Choir, and Music Ministry, featuring special guest artists Charles Holt and Acoustic Eidolon, all welcome you to celebrate this Sacred night filled with Holy light.
