Sunday, December 23, 2018 I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD!” Psalm 122:1 “Joy to the World, the Lord is come!” It is our favorite time of the year! The tree is trimmed. Wreaths have ribbons. Candles glow. A traditional carol is heard over the…

Monday, December 17, 2018 Sing praises to God, sing praises; sing praises to our King, sing praises. Psalm 47:6 A friend of mine looks forward to his late November birthday each year.

Sunday, December 16, 2018 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:16 This tree in our sanctuary is artificial, but if we set that thought aside for a moment, we can see a noble evergreen;…
