The Scarlet Thread of Redemption

Posted by Timothy

On Sunday evening, December 16, nearly our whole church gathered together for our annual celebration of the advent of Christ through the reading of select passages of Scripture.
This year, instead of the usual reading of Luke, select passages from Genesis to Revelation were picked out, tracing the Scarlet Thread of Redemption.
The passages selected were: Genesis 3, Isaiah 9, Isaiah 53, Luke 2, Colossians 1, and Revelation 22.
Among the people selected to read these passages were:

Dana Merrill, grinning all the time, you just can't see it,Happy Smiley

and Steve Breagy, an elder of our church and appropriately more serious.

Also we were blessed to have a traveling, home schooled, family perform two pieces from Handel's Messiah.
All together it was a refreshing time, very different from the modern Santa Claus, and Reindeer corruption of Christmas.
