Home for Christmas
by Miriam Rossow on December 23rd, 2019
“I’ll be home for Christmas, you can count on me…” I’ve had that song playing in my head for a month now. I remember rehearsing that tune with a big band in Germany during an exchange year; I’d make fake sobbing sounds from the trumpet section every time we got to the refrain.

This Saturday our church opens up the doors to bless the community with our CHRISTmas Blessing baskets. This is the 7th year we will be hosting this event. We serve breakfast, hand out large baskets of non-perishable food items, give a ham and some fresh produce. All the while we try and make it a festive atmosphere as we provide Christmas music.

It can be a difficult situation to know how and when to be 'hospitable'.

Christmas is my favorite season of the church year especially when it comes to decorations. I love the lights, the candles, the nativities, and the greens. I love the music of Christmas. I always decorate the Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving and leave the decorations up through Epiphany!
