Silent Night stories, talks and sketches 

Many of the acts of heroism and sacrifice in World War 1 help to explain something of the greater love of Jesus; love that extends to our neighbours and even to our enemies. Use these stories, short talk-outlines and sketches as part of your Silent Night Carols event.
