A still-grieving community in Newtown, Connecticut attends Christmas worship with the memory of a mass school shooting fresh in their minds. Twenty children and six adults were killed when a gunman opened fire inside the Sandy Hook elementary school earlier this month. During a Christmas Eve service at the Trinity Episcopal Church, Reverend Kathleen Adams-Shepherd barely mentioned the shooting, focusing instead on the children who attended the service. In funeral after funeral, church leaders in Newtown have been remembering the victims in somber memorial ceremonies. But Monday's service celebrated life and attempted to bring a little cheer to children during a holiday season marked by tragedy.
