The timing of the Christmas season in our household undoubtedly begins in late November/early December in the choir loft where churchmates gather night by night to practice for the annual musical drama, scheduled for production the first weekend in December.
So here we are tonight, as every night this week. Choir stationed behind the stage in the darkened sanctuary, players adorned in 1st century Near Eastern garb, theatre lights probing the darkness.
No, this season is not about darkness! The light!
Yes, the light. T’is the season of light.
