While walking toward his home one winter evening, composing a sermon, Martin Luther, the 16th century Protestant reformer, was awed by the brilliance of stars twinkling amidst the evergreens. It reminded him of Jesus when He left the stars in heaven to come down to earth. To recapture the scene for his family, he erected such a tree inside his home and lighted it with candles. Join us as the Chamber introduces our Inaugural Christmas Tree Twinkle! See glorious trees lit in Chamberlain Park throughout the Living Nativity. Chamberlain Park
