Update

19 hearty souls braved the snow and ice in order to get to church this morning. Some even walked over the icy roads, duking it out with crazy drivers along the way. So we had a nice, intimate service, using the morning liturgy from Celtic Daily Prayer, reading the liturgy texts for the day, singing some Christmas carols and praying over the needs of the church.

Plus we drank a lot of hot coffee.

In the spirit of neighborly cheer we had the James' and the Robert's over for soup and bread and fellowship for the afternoon; while we enjoyed the good company inside, snow poured down outside, continuing to leave everything in a state of breathless wonder. The view outside our living room window would make everyone jealous.

It's been snowing all afternoon; another 6 inches is expected by the morning. A snow princess now stands to welcome all in front of our church.

All in all, a very good day.
