For what it's worth, the choices I make are not always an indictment of your choices. Not always.
Fantastic post! Thanks for sharing . . .
not sure whether I should laugh, cry or find out what he’s really saying. . . I’m not sure how the dialogue went in the worship planning meeting, but we ARE having worship on Christmas day at my church (not on Christmas Eve, though, which gets me worked up!)
Colleen – this will be the first Christmas Eve since my kids were born (8 years ago, for the first) that I’ll be able to spend with them. I’ve been wanting to carry on my family’s Christmas Eve traditions with my kids, but having to be at church all day to work hasn’t made it possible–especially with littles. That changes this year!
Andy – really liked the video…I don’t get why we think we ought not to worship Christ on Christmas Day…particularly when it is on Sunday…I have a 7 pm and a 11 pm Christmas eve service then 10.30 am on Sunday morning…I was a little surprised when a few of my folks questioned having worship Christmas day…for me it was not a question to seriously consider…I will be there whether anyone else is there or not…
Andy…I hear you about times with family and traditions and am really happy for you guys as a family that this year is different!! I’m imagining some new traditions for myself and my son this year too – it feels good.Big churches create all kinds of problems for themselves that they don’t generally see the conflict in – like making staff work all day on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day…to name just one (ticketing Christmas being another!). As a worship leader/pastor, gotta say I’ve been there – done that, but ‘workaholism’ is no longer on my list of ways to show that i’m a good christian and/or ‘part of the team’.
