Well, if anyone has been regularly visiting this website, I don't have to tell you that it has been a very long time since I have updated things! I can't believe that it has been a year since I last talked about Christmas at Enon. We had our "hanging of the greens" service last Sunday and were blessed with several visitors. Pastor Mattox writes a special service each year for this special Sunday, but it follows the same general theme. One can't help but feel closer to Jesus during this time of the year, as we celebrate His birth. The Christmas hymns and all the lit candles in the sanctuary give a warm glow in the room and in our hearts.
As you go about your shopping this year, remember those that are alone, those who may not have a warm place to stay, or don't have enough to eat. Jesus told us "that which you do for the least of these, you have done for me." There is a song we hear sometimes this time of year (I can't remember the name of the song) that tells a story of a man whom God told that he would visit. The man was so excited that he sat up all night waiting for the Lord to visit, but his only visitors were three people who needed help in different ways. Of course he gave them what they needed, but was very disappointed that the Lord didn't visit him. The Lord told him that the three people that visited him were, in fact, the Lord Himself.
If you don't have anything to do on Christmas Eve, and you would like to participate in an old-fashioned service, please join us at Enon at 5:30pm. Have a very Merry Christmas and don't forget that Jesus is the reason for the season. Happy Birthday Jesus!
