How Many Languages Was That?

A unique multicultural experience will take place in the Grace Brethren church in Ephrata, Pennsylvania (Kim Robertson, pastor) this Christmas eve as a number of people share in the service in a variety of languages. Here is a reproduction from the bulletin of the order of service--we counted at least six languages.

And God understands each one of them!
