Good evening on this last Sunday of 2018. It’s hard to believe the year is just about over. On Tuesday, we will be going over to our friends at the Methodist Church and getting some pork & sauerkraut to begin the year.
It has been a good week since last Sunday. On Monday, we had a good Christmas Eve service. We did something called a Service of the Nativity. We combined the nativity readings with songs. The service finished with us singing Silent Night and lighting candles. As a point of interest, Christmas Eve was the 200th anniversary of the first performance of Silent Night.
Christmas morning we were up early to go to my mom and dad’s in Allentown, PA. It was a good time. We got to spend some good time with them and then we also did some shopping – we took them out for their anniversary – the next day we hit up some of our favorite eating places – Yocco’s and Chick-fil-A. Friday we had some of the warmest weather since Thanksgiving. We arrived home to no snow – although the weather cooperated and we had a dusting this morning.
Today we had a good service as we celebrated that God is among us. I have enjoyed leading the musical worship over the last few weeks. Following worship, we headed over to the Bradford Ecumenical Home and led a worship service there.
Besides that, Anna and I have been working our way through the Star Wars saga. We have seen Episodes 1, 2, 3 and just finished 3.5. Tomorrow we watch the film that got it all started.
We are looking forward to our children and grandchildren’s visit this week. So we are preparing for that. And that about brings me to the end. Have a great week.
