The light shines in the darkness,

Christmas Carols on the Labyrinth
We had a wonderful time singing Christmas carols on Sunday afternoon, December 18.  About 45-50 people braved the cold and wind on the labyrinth to raise our voices in joyful song.  Many thanks to Matt Isenhower for playing the keyboard (to try to keep us in tune).  Thanks also to the volunteers who provided the hot chocolate and treats afterwards.
