I’m not a church person, but every year Christmas brings me to a church somewhere. Usually it’s TG’s, where she’ll be singing the messiah with her chorus tonight and we’ll be attending with two of the boys and some dear friends.
Two years ago, we were at Notre Dame in Paris, attending Midnight Mass and wondering at the idea that people have been doing exactly the same thing in exactly the same place for a over thousand years and in the same building for over eight hundred.
So Merry Christmas to everyone here. You don’t have to be religious to embrace the spirit of the day – birth, hope, and renewal.
May your day be merry and your troubles light…
