ANd so each year I toy with writing something. But thus far I have always been fortunate enough to find something that will work. ANd that is good since often I don't start thinking about it until NOvember. But this year I have started thinking early and am tempted to try to write a whole service/pageant for White Gift Sunday.
So far I have an idea to have 4 speakers:
- A narrator/liturgist
- Scripture Reader
- An older woman remembering fondly what Christmas in the church used to be
- A young man/woman who is struggling (possibly homeless???) economically and wondering what CHristmas will bring this year.
My tentative Advent theme as a whole is looking at what is being born. Writing our homegrown pageant could allow it to fit that theme????
