Merry Christmas 2008! Don't fret over crowded pews; Christ came to save everyone, every day

Yes, the church pews are going to be crowded with people you've seldom or never seen during the year.

Or you may be one of the good folks finally making it to church after failing to summon the energy or find the time on Sundays.

No matter. Simply rejoice. Christ is born! For everyone.

Some people will be talking too loud. Some people will take up too much room. Some people will be coughing without putting their hands over their mouths. Some people won't know all the responses to the prayers.

But they will have known enough to come to church to worship the baby in the manger. And the pastor does not fret over a collection basket filled to the brim.

God so loved the world that He gave it his only son, so whoever would believe in Him would have eternal life.

That promise includes people who come to church only on Christmas and few Sundays in between.
