Clocked out


Have a great holiday, you guys: Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, the solstice, whatever you celebrate. I am taking a short break because 1. I am lazy and 2. I am tired. See you in a few weeks.

You're nowhere near lazy. Merry industrious Christmas to you!

Joy said...

Merry Christmas! Come back real soon now!

Have a very Merry Christmas! I know this is something you will do right.

I thought of you last night. My parents' church had what was otherwise a pretty nice Christmas Eve candlelight service. Sure, a lot of folks don't sing too well, and sure, there probably wasn't a need for high school trumpet players to accompany some of the hymns. But still, lots of beautiful old carols and an organ player who knows what she's doing go a long way. Except that one of the hymns was not a beautiful old carol, but instead was some Marty Haugen disaster. Blah, bland, insipid, and a total waste of Christmas Eve time.

Thanks, everyone! Now I have the pressure of writing a Christmas letter.

Joy, our Christmas Eve service was really nice. Not one single Marty Haugen tune! I think it's because we went to SH's Lutheran church and they don't do MH. (Although the handbell choir - blesstheirhearts. What else can you say?)

Joy said...

We were AT the Lutheran church! There was no excuse whatsoever for MH! Blesstheirhearts, their handbell choir is currently in a long-term hiatus because a couple of the main ringers moved away.

Joy - ELCA? Or one of the synods?

Pam said...

LOL on the Marty Haugen...I'm guessing it had to be an ELCA congregation. Can't imagine MO or WI Synods going for him.

Happy break and merry Christmas to you, CF.

Joy said...

Pam is right, of course. It's an ELCA congregation. I suppose the occasional MH is the price one pays for avoiding some of the even less pleasant aspects of the WI and MO synods.

Pam said...

Amen to that, Joy. (There were lots of laughs as I was handed two bottle bags in the church parking lot after Christmas Eve service. It's good to be Lutheran!)
