I've seen this round numerous Lutheran blogs this year, and I couldn't agree more:
Put the MASS Back in ChristMAS!
Divine Service will be celebrated at St. Paul's is at 9:00 a.m. ChristMASS morning, God willing.
Attending the Divine Service and letting the One who once came to you in flesh and blood and was laid in the manger come to you still in the very flesh and blood He received from His blessed Mother, well, that's HOW you put CHRIST back in CHRIST-MASS! As the Alleluia Verse for the Christmas Day Divine Service says it:
"Alleluia! A holy day has dawned upon us. Come, all you nations, and worship the Lord. Alleluia!"
If the Church is summoning the nations to join her, she'd best be there herself, eh?
