Advent Day 6: Lessons and Carols

For Day 6 of Advent, W and I went to Stanford MemChu for "Lessons and Carols."

The Nine Lessons and Carols is a service that I hadn't been familiar with, not having grown up going to church. In addition, when I did start going to church in high school, it was a United Methodist one, which doesn't do the more traditional "English" services. W knew about it, since he grew up Episcopalian (he even sang the solo in one of the included songs when he was little). It's a nice, straightforward service - short on words and plenty of singing. And the organist - rocking out to Widor's Toccata at the end - was the cherry on top.
