The Christmas Pageant.
Good morning, it is Monday.
Yesterday our church held it's Youth Christmas Pageant. Lots of hard work and plenty of talented kids. Our kids included. It was absolutely one of the best Pageants I've seen.
The pageant started with the high school band. They were great. Yup, that's Preston playing his clarinet on the left.
Cute songs with little kids. Plenty of parents wanting to get pictures. Just cute overload. When Lillie was younger she was Mary and got to carry the baby Jesus. Preston was once a reluctant Shepherd, too scared to even be on the stage. Hansen was a Shepherd as well. That doesn't seem that long ago,.. too cute.
Lillie did a great job as a reader. She has a wonderful reader's voice and is always smooth as can be.
Preston and his friend Nick gave the sermon. As in, they wrote the sermon and delivered the sermon. Amazing really. The message was super and they did a great job speaking in front of a packed audience. Afterward plenty of folks came up to me to say what a great job he did. Nice.
Hansen didn't really want to speak in front of the whole church, so he volunteered to be a communion assistant. Hansen did a great job as well. Instead of speaking to the whole church at one time, he got to speak to each individual member as they came through the communion line.
