The creche is unlike those commonly seen in churches and front yards beginning the month before Christmas, typically featuring figures of Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in the stable, often joined by shepherds, angels, wise men and animals. Instead, the scene is an imaginative, highly detailed, miniature representation of life in the city of Bethlehem.
I hate waiting. I mean I REALLY hate waiting, at least in the conventional sense as defined above. I hate it so much that I spent hundreds of dollars on a smart phone so that I could download the free Starbucks App onto it. Why? Because I can order my Venti 3 Splenda Latte and Protein Bistro Box before I leave the house, drive to Haymarket, and in the 8 minutes it takes to get there I'll find my order resting freshly on the counter for me. NO waiting.
Rector Candidates: The Grace Church Self-Study is available here for your review. Note to the Congregation: The Discernment Committee is now receiving and evaluating applications for the position of Rector at Grace Church. This process must be kept completely confidential to protect the candidates.
