The local church was only five minutes from the house but we were dragging our legs. An impromptu decision to go to church seemed like a good one; after the fact!
It was a rainy grey Christmas morning and we were reluctant but decided to go anyway. We were the first to arrive (30minutes before) and really enjoyed the service. It was light and fun with all the children jumping around and showing their presents.
The Reverend wore a father Christmas costume while he gave the sermon and had the children assist him to deliver the message. His sermon highlighted the main reason while we celebrate Christmas – a child who brought hope to the world!
