I love the traditions big and small which make this time of year different from the rest. This holiday season I am reading Quinn Caldwell's devotional, “All I Really Want." It's like an Advent calendar for grown-ups without the chocolate. As I read it, I already am anticipating the many things I love about Thanksgiving, Advent and Christmas. We celebrate together with food and drink, decorations, music, parties and gifts. We celebrate that God has bodily come among us with bodily things like eating and drinking, singing and giving gifts.
We have planned ways for you to celebrate with us at the Highlands. We hope you do. There is festive worship and fun fellowship to share. We hang the greens and share music of the season, crafts are made, cookies are decorated and carols are sung. Join us when you are able.
Happy Thanksgiving! Merry Christmas!
