This service of lessons and carols is based on the traditional set of readings with some changes. It retains lessons 3-9, but shifts the message of lessons 1 and 2 away from original sin toward original blessing. The first reading is God’s creation and blessing of humankind; the second is God’s covenant with Noah. The opening and closing liturgies are rewritten to reflect the perspective of a process-relational theology. Hymn suggestions aim, for the most part, to accommodate congregational favorites.
