A partial remedy to this is to take time off from your Christmas chores and routines and join your fellow parishioners at the church this Saturday morning (Dec 10) at 11:00 am in a series of meditations and prayers on the events surrounding the birth of Jesus. We will use the beautiful prints that adorn our church this time of year. During Advent, our Stations of the Cross in the nave of the church are replaced with beautiful reproductions of classical paintings that tell the story of Christmas. We will walk through the nave, spending time at each of the beautiful pieces of artwork, reading the related scripture, and saying our prayers and devotions.
Following The Stations of the Nativity there will be a luncheon of our favorite Christmas recipes. Bring one copy of your recipe to be copied and shared. We will make copies. This will be a great time for fellowship for the whole parish.
If you are unable to join us, take time to walk through the nave on your own and enjoy these paintings.
