Today is the second day of Christmas, just like the old song goes. Christmas is such goodness that it takes 12 days to celebrate it fully. No sermon this week as we celebrate our annual Lessons & Carols service, hearing the story of our Savior's birth from its promise in the Old Testament to its fulfillment in the New.
Next Sunday, January 2, we'll observe our celebration of the Festival of Our Lord's Epiphany. During coffee time we'll have a king cake and according to the south Texas tradition, whoever finds the baby in their piece of cake gets to bring tamales next week for coffee time. Good luck!
(Yes, we know Epiphany is properly January 6, 13 days after Christmas.)

What a Mess!
Real life isn’t neat & tidy like a nativity scene
