The Christmas Truce @ Medina Congregational Church, UCC | Medina | Ohio | United States

Come to this healing concert that is a remembrance of the 1914 Christmas Truce. You will be invited to sing, to pray, and to let go of grief and anxiety. This event is part ceremony in which you will be invited to release the past year. We do this in expectation for the new life, light and peace that is the reason for the season.

The true meaning of Christmas has always been the unexpected birth of New Life in a most degraded, forgotten, even despised place. There was a time when that location was imagined as a stable in Bethlehem.  In our traditional telling, the savior was born into a forsaken shelter surrounded by animals. In the early 20th century, that unexpected location was No Man’s Land — the devastated landscape between the enemy trenches.
