"Christmas Joy"

A Christmas reflection by Pr. Patrick Fish

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer

is singing loud for all to hear.” –Buddy the Elf

Everyone has their Christmas traditions. Some of them are meaningful. Some of them are more just for fun. Well, one tradition Kate and I do every year is watch the movie Elf. We pass this tradition, along with many others, on to our two daughters. I can already envision both our girls yelling, “SANTA! I KNOW HIM!”  

This year, I find myself looking at Elf a little differently.
