Christmas Television Broadcasts

Through Odyssey member the National Council of Churches (www.ncccusa.org) and the Interfaith Broadcasting Commission (www.interfaithbroadcasting.com), Odyssey members have Christmas worship services on all three major US television networks on Christmas Eve/Day this year. Here’s the schedule:

· A Christmas for Everybody from St. Paul & St. Andrew United Methodist Church in New York City will be broadcast on CBS television stations across the country on Christmas Eve in the normal David Letterman hour. In New York City, it can be seen on WCBS TV 2 at 11:35 p.m. on 12/24. Of the three programs, this is the only one broadcast across the USA at the same time (a “must carry”). This broadcast will include presentations by a local Rabbi and Imam. More details are online at http://www.interfaithbroadcasting.com/program.aspx?PID=324.

· A Service of Lessons and Carols from Historic Trinity Church on Wall Street, New York City will be broadcast on ABC television stations across the country on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Local stations have the choice to broadcast or not and to schedule this program whenever they wish. In New York City, it will be seen on WABC TV7 at 1:08 a.m. on 12/25 (for most of us that’s still Christmas Eve!) More details are online at http://www.interfaithbroadcasting.com/program.aspx?PID=332.

· Christmas Angels (ecumenical segments from UCC, ELCA, Episcopal congregations) will be broadcast on NBC television stations across the country on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Local stations have the choice to broadcast or not and to schedule this program whenever they wish. In New York City, it will be seen on WNBC TV4 at 3:00 p.m. on 12/25. Our members are heavily involved in this one: Jean Robinson (UCC) is the program producer and Peter Panagore (First Radio Parish of America) produced the segment from Boothbay Harbor UCC in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. (I produced the segment from St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Chicago - in my former life – Christmas video “lives” forever!) More details are online at http://www.interfaithbroadcasting.com/program.aspx?PID=328.

The Interfaith Broadcasting Commission’s website (www.interfaithbroadcasting.com) has links for each program to the local affiliates which are broadcasting each program with the date and time.
