Last Saturday night Epiphany went caroling. I went along, but to be honest, I wasn't very happy about it. It felt like just one more thing to do during a busy, busy time. The next two hours changed me. It felt so good just to sing about Jesus and visit with people who were glad to see us and hear us sing the Gospel.
Friends, when Epiphany goes caroling next year, let me heartily recommend participating to you. Bring your family or come yourself. Caroling is a great thing to do. It not only brings joy to others, but it brought Christmas joy to me in a time when I can sometimes miss it in the middle of everything there is to manage.
Angels sang at Jesus' birth, and we can too!
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those
with whom he is pleased!" (Luke 2.14)
Merry (almost) Christmas!
