I wish you all a merry 4th day of Christmas! As I write this I am sitting on a runway at the Albuquerque International Sunport (airport) waiting to get off a plane. We are visiting my parents and siblings, and Deb’s sister and grandmother. We will return home on December 31. I am grateful for Jeremiah Mustered, our officiant for today’s special service of Lessons and Carols. I am going to miss the peacefulness and simple joy of singing some of my favorite songs with you.
Christmas Eve and Christmas Day were joy-filled and holy celebrations at Holy Apostles. The liturgy was hope inspiring, and the music was beautiful. I loved having our guest harpist, Carol Melaragni, with us. And it was wonderful to see so many guests, visiting family, and friends. The combined attendance of all three services was approximately 240. Thanks to all who made it a special Christmas celebration.
