Join Christopher Reynolds for this annual look at the lessons learned from the 1914 Christmas Truce. Through learning from the past, may we remove some of the violence from the world. May we may offer healing to those who have died, to those now suffering and who are in despair. May we know again the true meaning of Christmas.
Could we as one people sing our hopes together to bring forth the beautiful world we wish for future generations? The longing for a Holy Night, a Silent Night, from an unexpected time and forgotten place came true once. If it happened once, it can surely come to pass once more.
It’s our turn now.
This will be a livestreamed event (available on our Livestream page, Facebook Live, and YouTube Live) filled with story and music to uplift your soul on Friday, December 18 at 7:00 p.m. In addition to sharing the story of the 1914 Christmas Truce, participants will be invited to release grief, anger, despair, fear, pain, etc. as we call forth hope in the darkness of night. As we fill the night with music and light, you will be inspired to see the light of hope and hear the music of goodwill for all people in this challenging time.
During this event, we will be sharing an ancient Winter Solstice ceremony that is held at the site of Chartres Cathedral in honoring the sacred feminine and her healing waters. The Cathedral is the site of a well-known labyrinth built in the 13th century in Chartres, France.
