Sunday, Dec. 15 at 12:30 p.m. at Christ Church

On Sunday, Dec. 15 at 12:30 p.m. there will be a showing and discussion of the documentary, “Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North” at Christ Church, Portsmouth. It is being hosted by Betty Lane, a member of Christ Church, and will be preceded by a simple soup-and-bread luncheon or pot luck. All are welcome! In this feature documentary, filmmaker Katrina Browne discovers that her New England ancestors were the largest slave-trading family in U.S. history. She and nine cousins retrace the Triangle Trade and gain powerful new perspectives on the black/white divide. More information can be found at www.tracesofthetrade.org/synopsis/ Please R.S.V.P. to Suzanne George, Seacoast Convocation secretary (seaconmail@yahoo.com), so we will know how many people to expect.

Christmas Festival Lessons and Carols

Sunday, Dec. 29 at 10:30 a.m.

The Christmas Festival of Lessons and Carols is adapted from an Order drawn up by E.W. Benson for use on Christmas Eve 1880 in Truro Cathedral in England. King's College later adapted the service for their own use, and that is the version that has become most familiar today. Join us on Sunday, Dec. 29 as we hear again the readings from Holy Scripture that tell the story of God's enduring promise of redemption through the birth, life, death, and resurrection of his Son, Jesus. The carols sung are chosen to reflect on these passages and meant to help anchor us more securely in heart and mind as we rejoice in the birth of our Lord and Savior. It is a fitting way to remind ourselves that Christmas is a twelve-day feast, full of rich opportunities for enjoying the narrative and music that open to us the mystery of the Incarnation.
