This candid shot was taken during the traditional candlelight service at the Faith United Methodist Church in Fort Myers Beach Florida on Christmas Eve. The pastor reminded us that the Christmas spirit only lasts for a while, but Christ’s love lasts forever. The congregation sang “Silent Night” while every candle in the church was lit and the lights were turned off. Only the candles, representing the light of Christ, could be seen then. This tradition is common in many Christian churches on Christmas Eve.
