And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7
No room at the inn when Jesus was born and in 2020 there will be no visitors in the no nursing home. No place for our Savior’s birth, so how appropriate it was because of the virus to have our Christmas service outdoors at the fountain at Sunshine Christian Village. Just to be clear, these were not the residents of the long term care facility, but rather of the surrounding senior apartments. It was actually a beautiful day (We prayed for no rain) and a safe way to sing some carols; hear the story of Christmas again and pray for one another. Of course we are all happy to hear about the vaccine but as we wait we must still live in today and do what we can to lift up the name of Jesus. I hope you will be encouraged and blessed to find ways to reach out to the long term care facilities in your own community. We are still praying that we can have them open the doors next week on the porch so we could stand outside and sing while they are inside listening.
