    Blue Christmas Program
    As Christmas approaches, the whole world seems to be alive with anticipation. Yet, against this cheerful backdrop of sparkling lights and festive music, there are many for whom this time is a tearful reminder of the harshness of life.

    During Advent, one of the first Christmas carols we sing at my church is “O Come O Come Emmanuel.”
    It’s a melancholy song of Israel’s lament, of their crying out to God for relief from bondage and slavery, begging God to come and free them.
    But then the chorus goes: “Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.”
    Rejoice -- to feel and/or show great joy or delight.

    Now that Black Friday 2018 is history and the BF hoopla is over, I’ll tell you what I think about it.
    I was never a Black Friday shopper, but it was always my favorite news story of the year back when it was just this quirky thing that people did the day after Thanksgiving.
    I would look forward to watching the evening news on TV, with the news reporter out at some crowded mall talking to shoppers about the bargains they got.

    Christmas Cantata
    The Chancel Choir will present their annual Christmas cantata, Sunday, Dec. 9, at 11 a.m. at Cynthiana Presbyterian Church. The musical is entitled, “Peace Has Come.” This musical unwraps the idea of why the prophet Isaiah called Jesus the Prince of Peace. Because of what He did on the cross, we can have that quiet assurance that only comes from God.
    Mark your calendars. You won’t want to miss out on a blessing.

  • He will take care of our needs

    I worked my way through college in a long series of part-time jobs. Most of the time I was able to save enough money to pay my bills by the deadlines, but my ancient cars regularly found ways to spend my paychecks.

    Editor’s note: This is the 20th year of Nancy Kennedy’s annual Thanksgiving psalm. She is still thankful.

    Dear God,
    As you know, I’ve had a difficult time starting this year’s Thanksgiving psalm.
    In fact, it’s a week late.
    Life hasn’t been sunshine and roses and rainbow-colored unicorns this year, not for me and not for a lot of people. And yet, I have much to be thankful for.

    Whenever my husband and I travel the 70 miles to eat the best pizza ever, we always make sure not to eat breakfast because we want to be good and hungry so it will be worth the trip.
    Barry gets two slices with green peppers, onions and mushrooms and I get one slice of Florentine pizza -- creamy ricotta cheese and spinach.
    As we eat, we close our eyes and smile, maybe sigh, because this is The. Best. Pizza. Ever.
    Not everyone loves pizza, but every human being is hungry, and the desire for food and to be fed is amazingly powerful.
