When: Sun., Dec. 17, 3 p.m.
Annual service of Lessons & Carols. Lessons & Carols is a lovely and meditative part of the Advent season. It looks forward to Christmas and offers a contemplative respite from the hectic run-up to holiday celebrations. The service is joyful and remarkably inclusive: People of all faiths and of none return year after year. It is an old Anglican tradition that features short readings from the Old and New Testaments interspersed liberally with Christmas carols and choral performances.
