I didn’t know on Christmas Eve in 2019, when I delivered the Christmas Eve message at my church, that it would be my last Christmas Eve there.
The pandemic kept us away in 2020, and then in 2021 it was clear that the church needed to wrap up operations, and find a new church to plant itself in our building. As the year progressed it became clear to me that my time there needed to end. I resigned and relinquished my membership in October.
And now Margaret and I are attending a little Christian church called New Hope just five minutes from our home. We’re attending Christmas Eve services there tonight.
Happy Christmas to you, wherever you are tonight!
