Usually, on Christmas Day, Marsha Birch plays our morning service accompanied by her daughter Karen, on oboe, and her son-in-law Reuben, on violin. Although this is not possible this year, we are very pleased that Karen and Reuben have sent us two lovely English carols, The Holly and the Ivy and Wassail, as our Christmas morning offering.

Karen and Reuben Blundell are professional musicians and teachers, and we thank them for this wonderful start to our Christmas day. We all hope that by next year, we will back to in-person services and can hear them again at St. John’s.
