We haven’t been to church in years. Mostly because we don’t wish to be arrested for arson when the building ignites upon our entry.
But we know Christmas Eve services are a big part of many people’s traditions. This year, you can catch a duo of virtual services from two houses of worship that open LGBTQ people with open arms.
Cathedral of Hope has a full day of programming, starting with a b at 10:00 a.m., two English services at 7:00 and 10:00 p.m., a Spanish service at 8:00 p.m. Or, starting at noon you can access everything on-demand. If you still need a little baby Jesus in your life, they’re also having a special online Christmas Day concert at 10:00 a.m.
Over at Oak Lawn United Methodist Church, you can celebrate Christmas Eve with an online communion service at 7:00 p.m. and a lessons and carols service at 11:30 p.m.
Gather those close to you and watch by the light of your Christmas tree and the glow of your laptop. Or turn off all the lights and pull out some candles for a beautiful holiday at home.
