I sometimes think we are the oddest of faiths, observing one of our most joyous festivals of the year (Christmas) as we enter into the darkness of winter in our northern hemisphere.
I wonder what it must be like to celebrate Christmas in the southern half of the world, when Christmas comes in the summer and Easter in the autumn? What understandings shift simply because of the time of year in which we observe Christmas?
So to all my northern friends (and Virginians, to everyone south of the equator, we are all northerners here in the United States) – may the summer winds bring you an epiphany of exceeding great joy, filled with the promise of long summer days.
McDowell Presbyterian has a handicapped-accessible rest-room, a ramp for ease of entrance from the
gravel parking lot at the rear of the building, and large print bulletins and devotionals.
