The Twelve Days of Christmas
In these Twelve Days of Christmas...what should we be doing?
We spent four, count them...FOUR weeks in Advent preparing for the joy of Christmas and now we have twelve days to celebrate! One tradition that I have always been fond of is to leave the decorations up until at least Three Kings Day - or Epiphany. After getting married to someone that starts to decorate on Thanksgiving (or before), that means Christmas cheer in the presence of lights, trees, ornaments, and nativities is going on over a month and nearing a second.
Yet, there still seems to be immense joy in being surrounded by the reminder that Christ was born for me, you, all of us. Christ came into our world and lives so that we may live, and live we must.
That is why I want to invite you to two very special service over the next two Sundays, festival services of music and scripture. Services that remind us of the joy of Christ and the necessity to continue to live into the promise of abundant life and justice and peace.
