Tuesday night, Janice and I went to Advent by Candlelight put on by our Women's Ministry. Volunteers each hostess a table for 10, providing table settings, centerpieces and dessert. For the first time this year the ministry provided dinner as well. The theme this year was Angels. We each received an angel Christmas ornament and a jar of apple cinnamon jelly--and it was all free. There were readings from the bible and about angels, hand bells, and flute and violin solos as well as sing-a-longs about angels.

On Wednesday, David and I went to the Advent Service put on by the first, second and fourth graders. Kyleigh was a shepherd and we were able to get really good seats right in front of her thanks to Janice. You can see the backs of our heads in the first picture.
I'm sure that those of you who know us personally will realize that David's attending the Advent Service is really special. I've been going to this church off and on for over 32 years and he's never once set foot in it (except for the pastor's office where we were remarried in 1990).
