For the first five years of my ministry, I served a small church bereft of young children. Christmas presented the perfect opportunity to delve into the mystery of the incarnation; our Christmas Eve services dripped with candle wax and Christology. In my new call as an associate pastor at a large suburban congregation, I'm responsible for the Christmas Eve pageant.
