I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas day, week or month whichever you were able to take to enjoy time with family and friends. We had a wonderful Christmas with the beautiful Mass at Our Lady of the Assumption Church. Father issued a letter and asked us all to read it. In it he encouraged us to spend time with each other. Invite people to dinner, spend time socially with each other to build community. We are working on that. We have been able to attend more events at church and it has been good firming up friendships and making new ones.
Another priest teaches an Adult Catechism class and it is also a great way to get to know people better. We share a meal afterward and conversations. One of my daughters and one of my sons is in the community choir with me. This is another fun way to get to know people. These two activities have some people in common, but they also have a different group and feel to them. I am very glad that Father encouraged more participation in our church life outside of Mass. My family is responding pretty well and surprise, surprise ~ they are having fun! 🙂
I want post a knitting/reading blog soon. I am currently working on an article for an upcoming online start up magazine, Fiat, I hope that we can make it work. When I get that done, I am hoping to post some pictures of what I am working on and what I am reading.
Enjoy this last little bit of Christmas and let’s all work to carry it with us through the coming year. Being generous in spirit and action makes the world a little kinder.
