Why Lessons & Carols?

Christmas and the Covenant

Grace and Peace Presbyterian Church will hold our annual Festival of Nine Lessons & Carols  Christmas EveDecember 24th at 6 pm.

The value of Lessons & Carols, in short, is this: Lessons and Carols tangibly reminds us of the unity of Scripture, with the story of Christ and the incarnation of our Lord at its very center. Promise and fulfillment is the basic pattern of the Old and New Testaments of the Scriptures, and that this pattern should guide all our reading and interpretation and application of these texts. This value is not to be underestimated, as we live in a day of biblical illiteracy.

Briefly, Lessons and Carols is a service of nine scripture readings interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols. The most famous and perhaps “original” L&C was held on Christmas Eve at King’s College Cambridge in 1918, and every year there since.
