When we lived in Gilford (2002 — 2007) going to this church for the Christmas Eve service became a cherished tradition — though I am a lifelong heathen. We stopped going when we moved to Alton. Well, we rectified that today. First time back in eleven-years methinks.
It was good. It is a nice, friendly, non-judgmental church — and we even met some folks we knew from way back.
Despite being a heathen I don’t mind going to church. I have probably been to church nearly as much as many Christians. I like the architecture, the trappings, the ceremonial elements and above all the music. The music did not disappoint today. There was a rendition of “O, Holy Night” by a soloist, Karen Jordan, that was exceptional. WOW. It was worth going just for that.
So, set us up for Christmas.
