Tonight we read through the last chapters of the book of Revelation, and learned the real conclusion of the universe! Such heady stuff was tempered with refreshments and holiday leftovers.

Christmas Dinner

Following this morning’s service we filled the fellowship hall to celebrate Christmas and friendship. The hall was beautifully decorated for the occasion, and the food and fellowship were outstanding.

Tonight we gathered at the lovely home of Bob & Sharyn Halpin for an evening of fellowship and merriment. When the guests arrived, we started with a prayer and a toast with sparkling apple cider and cranberry gingerale. We enjoyed a variety of unique and delicious finger foods and desserts while catching up with old friends and making new ones.

For the gift exchange, each guest brought a wrapped gift. We always say to expect the unexpected, because gifts range from something just for laughs, something nice (but inexpensive), to something someone wants to foist-off (e.g., a pink cowgirl hat) This evening saw a variety of unexpected gifts, but the biggest (literally) surprise was a 60-year old weed whacker!

Tim, Cheryl, and their accomplices transformed the fellowship hall into a delightfully French candle-lit Christmas experience. We enjoyed dressing up and having adult conversations in an elegant atmosphere, all the while dining on roasted chicken, potatoes, asparagus, and fresh garden salad served in a French style.

Tres bon!
