ATTENDING CHURCH SERVICES has always been a part of my Christmas time celebration for it is Christ’s birth I focus on today.
I recently photographed these scenes at Fourth Avenue United Methodist Church, an historic Faribault, Minnesota, church:
While the sanctuary stood empty, I imagined the pews packed with worshipers,
the baby Jesus already laid in the manger,
the anticipation of children restless with excitement.
What a joyful time.
May the blessings of peace, happiness and joy be yours today and in the year ahead, for unto us a Saviour is born, Christ the Lord.
