As I write tonight, we are watching The Sound of Music. We happened upon it after watching the Steelers beat the Patriots. As I wrote on a friends Facebook page, our Pennsylvania football teams sure know how to add drama to football. I wish they would cut it out and just win football games.
It’s been a good week. Yesterday we went Christmas caroling with several of the other churches in our community. We had a great time as we walked through the borough of Eldred. It was great to stop by various shut-ins from each of the churches.
After Christmas caroling, we had an Open House Cookie Swap at the parsonage. We had a great time with members of our church. There were lots of snacks and lots of cookies.
This afternoon we helped set up some things for a Christmas event at the Elementary School. We are looking forward to helping with the event tomorrow night.
This morning we had a good service at McCrae Brook. The was a wonderful spirit of worship as we sang, prayed and opened God’s Word.
This coming week, we are preparing for two services – a Blue Christmas Service for those who are stressed, grieving, or lonely. It is always a wonderful pause in all the Christmas festivities before Christmas. It is a low-key service in which we light candles in memory of loved ones who have gone.
That is about it for this week. Seize the day!
