Merry Christmas

And Happy Holidays!

We had a Christmas Pageant that really fit our church. Two Josephs, four Marys, dozens of angels and shepherds, anyone that wanted to come up could. No scripts. A mild director who simply called for when folks should come and didn't mind when folks did or didn't or went too early. There were just the passages from Luke and carols in between.

Candles were lit and songs were song, and the story told again.

Then an offering was made for the emergency fund for retired UCC ministers, lay leaders, and clergy. And then everyone just got up and hugged each other and wished each other a Merry Christmas.

I'll wish you the same. Also that you get everything you need, give enough to feel good about it, and that you enjoy what time you can get with those closest to you. May the new year bring you more fun, love, joy, and courage than the last year.

Heh... and now I get to dive into a party with six families, their kids, and lots of gingerbread houses being made.
