“O Tidings of Comfort and Joy!” Attend Christmas Services this weekend in Fremont County

    Hopefully, the holiday shopping is done and it’s time to relax…at this point (for those last-minute shoppers), many local businesses and restaurants offer gift cards or certificates, or maybe you can create your own “certificate”…write a message on a Christmas card: “This card good for lunch or dinner at your favorite local restaurant.” 

    To me, the best gift of all is time. Time spent with friends, family, and loved ones; it’s a gift that keeps on giving, every day of the year. Time is all we have…it’s one of the reasons why I love taking road trips, but if I can’t travel due to distance or weather, those online options are also good…whether it’s a phone call or video chat. However, as we’ve experienced through COVID, there’s just nothing like “facelook” time…going to coffee or lunch to catch up, being able to connect in person with your community family, and enjoying a moment or two of peace on earth, goodwill to all.

    Inspirational messages, Nativity readings, candlelight, music and carols…this year, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day fall on the weekend. So if you’re wondering (or wandering), come on out from Wyoming’s “bleak mid-winter” and join any one of these places of worship for Christmas Services this weekend (addresses, websites and/or Facebook pages included). Maybe you’ll find one near you!
