The First Day of Christmas

Having Christmas fall on a Sunday presents a dilemma for some churches, falling as it does the morning after the big Christmas Eve services, so they cancel their regular Sunday morningworship. Several years ago, our previous pastor wanted to do just that, but I and some other members of our congregation protested. The pastor relented and we had an informal breakfast potluck and hymn sing on Christmas morning.
It just didn’t seem right to not have church on the day we celebrate the very reason for having church. I’m glad our current pastor agrees. We had a regular, though informal, service this morning with cinnamon rolls afterwards. Three services yesterday and another one this morning meant extra work for our staff and minister, and I’m grateful that they were willing to give us this gift.
