Christmas 2020

Our choir cantata won't take place this year. We lack the space to be six feet apart on stage or in the choir loft, but the fear of Covid can't crowd Christmas from ONE heart! All congregants will sing with season’s cheer.* Though Christmas shopping won't be quite the same, the mask I wear will not dilute the thrill of finding gifts and checking off each name. This list is one I'm eager to fulfill. A mostly normal Christmas is my aim! Close family will gather Christmas Day, with scrumptious food and presents to bestow. Though distancing, we'll limit Covid's sway. As always, reminiscences will flow. Our joy will keep pandemic threats at bay. No chaos or pandemic can erase the precious truth that Jesus came to Earth two thousand years ago. It’s by his grace one's soul is saved. His unique virgin birth, proclaimed each Christmas--nothing can efface. *The sanctuary's many lengthy pews make distancing easy. Date: November 9, 2020 Contest Title: Quintain--Sicilian Sponsor: Emile Pinet December 14, 2020 Entered in the Christmas Poems Old or New Contest Placed 2nd Sponsor: Constance LaFrance

I love it! Christmas celebrating will be modified this year (my wife and I will dearly miss the choir singing), but the Savior's incarnation will be celebrated one way or another. Many things will just have to wait until 2021. ~ John

My husband and I haven't gone back to church yet because of COVID19. We miss it very much. I am hoping we can get the vaccine before the Christmas so we can enjoy the season without having to worry about being infected. I know the service will be wonderful even without the usual experience. Thanks for dropping by my page. Sara

Thanks, S.O. I think it will be affected, but it shouldn't be ruined. :-) Janice
