Weekly Update 12/5/08 Wow! Is it cold outside! And it doesn’t seem at all necessary to sing “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” . . . but our musical folk will be singing and playing all sorts of delightful and amusing stuff this Sunday afternoon. I hope you’ll plan on being there! I may just sing a song or two (details below). . . . Meanwhile, activity is underway for this year’s Christmas Pageant, which is a week away. Our own Gary Kroeger returns to narrate. This is an awesome way to introduce your friends who just aren’t sure what to think about Christmas to the many and varied possibilities that we hold in our midst. So, think of someone you can invite now!
