Wednesday Festival: Rest Your Head

Here we are in the home stretch!

Preacher and pastor Gals and Pals are rushing to prepare the services and pageants and Lessons and Carols and Birthday Parties for Jesus...that other mamas and daddies are already stretched to the breaking point just to get to, with everything else that goes on in this season.

And then there's that Blizzard, or that COLD RAIN if you live here. What will it mean for our members' ability to attend?

What we know is that, no matter what, the Christ Child will still come to us, holding wide his arms of perfect love and acceptance of all. He'll be lying in a manger (which is a good place for a baby) and I invite you, too, to "rest your heads" there for just a moment ... read a little bit from your friends...and, if you have time, remember a Christmas moment of peace.

Sally shares with us a poem and a monologue.

Songbird offers a Christmas Story.

At my place, I am remembering One Good Christmas. If you have a moment today to sit down and reflect, to pull out a liturgical offering or one special memory, please do, and share with us in the comments. Post a direct link to your blog entry in your comment using the following formulation in the comment box: <a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a>

Sit ye a spell, loves, and rest.


  1. OK. I'll join in. It's definitely not as reflective as others, but if you're looking for a good laugh or at least an "I'm glad it wasn't me" come on over here to read about my Christmas Eve experience LAST year. I may have told it here before, but unsure, I wrote it again just now. Cracks me up every time I remember it.

  2. Oh She funny!
    Stories like these welcome tomorrow at Ask the Matriarch too...

  4. Oh what great stories! Thanks for sharing!
    Here's a short memory of a Christmas oh-so-long-ago.

    Christmas Long Ago

    I hope I did this correctly!

  5. She Rev, I am so glad you linked to that story! I am dying laughing

    And, fwiw, my Christmas Eve stuff is done too :)
