Christmas? It’s All About Love!
A Christmas Eve Talk by Lona Ingwerson, CS
Where will you be on Christmas Eve? We hope you will be with us!
In a time of so much change, there are a few things that remain consistent… among them Christmas and love…
Each of these, Christmas and love, will be highlighted in a talk entitled “Christmas? It’s All About Love” to be given by Lona Ingwerson, C.S. on Christmas Eve at 7:30 pm Eastern time.
Although the talk is sponsored by Third Church of Christ, Scientist in New York City, this year it will come to you from Lona’s home in Laguna Beach, California… didn’t we say it’s a year of change?

About the Music
Provided by Watchfire Music
Pre-Talk “Pianistic Delights for a Christmas Eve” performed by Ron Di Salvio, Philip Fortenberry and Mary Beth Carlson.
Peter Link performed, composed the music and co-wrote the lyrics to It’s All About Love with Dora Redman especially for Lona Ingwerson’s talk. Angel voices added by Julia Wade and Jenny Burton.
It’s the tale of Joseph and the Innkeeper, Mary and the Babe, the Shepherd Boys, the Three Wise Men and a host of Angels. It’s a song that once you hear, you’ll never forget, and It’s All About Love!
What better way to close the evening than with a duet from Julia Wade and Peter Link.
Here we imagine the morning after the birth. Mary and the baby are sound asleep recovering from the effort, but the party goes on. And it never stopped. It’s called “Quite a Time”.
I look forward to what has become an annual Christmas Program at 3rd Church. Great topic!
God bless you all have a great day
