We went Christmas Caroling this weekend, and a weird thing happened that I’m still not sure how I feel about it.
We were at this house singing Jingle Bells, and we finished and the lady said it was nice, but could we sing a Christmas Carol instead. She was quietly asking to hear a song about Jesus. So we met her needs.
But, for me, the idea of giving to others, seeing their needs and helping them out fits beautifully in the celebration. The Jesus story, Santa, trees, lights, it’s all Christmas. It’s about sharing, generosity, love, joy, family, friends, mystery, and impossibilities.
But, it was really fun, the weather was perfect, and we had a fantastic group of singers.
