Christmas Eve Eve greetings to you as we approach the end of an Advent like no other in this time of pandemic! We’ve been blessed to be able to gather in-person in our Garden Chapel and through Facebook live-streaming on each of the four Sundays. The weather has been nice, except for the Sunday when a sudden rain shower struck, and we had to run for cover to the Sanctuary! Minor challenges– such as dripping wax from the breeze-fueled, fast-burning purple and pink Advent candles, the failure to locate last-year’s Advent wreath (which was carefully put away for safe-keeping) and avoiding the tripping hazards of microphone cords stretched across the front of the worship space– were overcome with ingenuity. We also dealt in good humor with noisy peacocks and loud jets flying over!
There has been such nice spirit of cooperation, with everyone pitching in to help move chairs, tables, and other items back and forth from the Sanctuary to the Garden Chapel each Sunday. Thank you, everyone!
The peace and beauty of the outdoors have surely been a balm for our anxious souls. For that I am grateful and I know you are, too. This will surely be an Advent to remember!
I look forward to being together with you in our 4 p.m. Christmas Eve worship service in-person at CCC or on Facebook. I wish for each of you a blessed Christmas full of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love.
In Christ’s love,
