  • Last week I met a man who told me how his community thumbed their noses at the anti-Christmasness of their annual holiday show.

    Some had decided they couldn't sing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" in a public gathering so they rewrote the words.

    Ha ha ha, the man said. As the chorus on stage sang, "We wish you a happy holiday," the audience sang even louder, "We wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

  • St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 116 S. Columbia Ave., will observe the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ on Dec. 24 at 7 p.m.

    "This traditional service uses liturgy that dates back to the 2nd Century C.E.," said Karl Lusk, St. Thomas' pastor. "We'll sing the Christmas traditional hymns and also use a new setting for the service music, the St. James Press Christmas Service."

    Lusk noted that this music uses familiar hymn tunes for the sung portions of the Holy Communion service.
