25 Days of Christmas: Day 20

Today's sharing is just so fitting, because this is the last Sunday morning before Christmas. This is the Sunday where many who only go to church at Christmas time, may attend. Of course if your church has a Christmas Eve service, you may experience an influx of visitors as well.

I was always so perplexed that so many would come to church for Christmas and Easter, but would rather not be bothered the other 50 Sunday's of the year. Why is that? I don't understand, and to be honest, I feel a little bit sad. Yes I am grateful for those who usually don't attend and decide to partake in the Christmas festivities but then I realize how aftewards, life will just go back to normal, without a tiny bit of rememberance how WONDERFUL this season is we celebrate. Yes I get that so many pegan tradtitions have made their way into the festitvities, and I get that Dec 25th wasn't Jesus' ACTUAL birthday. BIG whoop! What a wonderful time to celebrate what it was ~ a miraculous gift to the world! AMAZING! And then to think how many people knowingly and even unknowingly turn away that gift so many times in their lives.

I am excited about service this morning. The choir is doing our annual "Handel's Hallejuiah Chorus" during the service, and it is just soooo moving! LOVE it!

May you be blessed today!

  1. Isn't it a shame really that you see so many different faces at church around this time. If only those people could see that church is just as important and special on all of the other Sundays as well.

    Sadly, my church service was cancelled this morning due to inclement weather...aka... 6 inches of snow. It was supposed to be the children's pageant...where children reenact the birth of Jesus. Very cute. I will miss it this year because there is no snow date. =(

    Anyway.. I will be writing soon about my Christmas Eve tradition. If you would like to post it here, I will send it to you. Let me know =)
