This morning we had almost 100 people in worship for Christmas Day. A very simple service with communion which was a wonderful way to celebrate in a calm, laid back atmosphere.
I have always found Christmas Day to be much more relaxed and people much more receptive to the message because the flair is over and people can just calmly come together in Christ.
Because of my appendectomy and our organist illness, things were very disjointed this year. My prayer is that next year we are able to get out into our community and invite people to hear the message of the Christ-child. The possibilities are endless, especially since we have a message that transcends stock-markets and snow, true forgiveness and salvation!
