The school year is almost over and tonight we are privileged to hear our kids take part in the Christmas Carol Service. It is an hour of extraordinary music, readings and prayers. We focus our attention on the Christmas story and join in one voice in worship. Those who believe and those who don’t are united in this space and place. Music has the ability to transcend and transform. To uplift and soothe the soul. This is the church where we will gather. Home to a small congregation most weeks it too becomes a new body, as it heaves with people overflowing in pews and out the door.
If only we would turn our face to Him every week, not just on this special day.
