I’m sure our ceremony isn’t far off from that of other churches. A few folks show up and dress up the chapel with a tree, lights, and assorted other festive decorations. We had snacks, sang carols, and discussed the cornucopia of tree lighting techniques. Thank you to all those who helped today!
I think people often miss out on the full spiritual experience of a true church community. There’s ALWAYS something else to do, and often the hardest part of a service project is getting up the nerve to go.
Church isn’t just about the Sunday service. There’s a reward one gets by serving and investing in your congregation of choice. I know I get “my cup filled” quicker when I’m a part of making it happen.
I’d encourage anyone reading this post to invest in something. Whether it be time, money, and hopefully pride; there are many worth-while causes out there. This is the season to be thankful for what we’ve been given, and I’m of the opinion that those able should give back.
You may find, as I have, that giving of your time can earn rewards you can’t buy at a “Black Friday” sale!
