This Week in Review:
We were all in the Christmas spirit this week at AES.
Final touches were put on projects for our Christmas Around the World presentations. Our Pre-K and Kindergarten children charmed their audience with their Christmas songs while grades 1-3 students performed in the church. The concert was highlighted by our 1st graders retelling the story of the birth of Jesus. Tonight the Polar Express will be viewed in the gym by our younger students who will come dressed in their PJs. The gym and the school has truly been transformed to reflect all that is really special about this holiday. In fact, I can feel the magic in the air and I am wondering if a visitor from the North Pole may stop in to visit the girls and boys tonight!
As we approach Christmas Day, I would like to share the following blessing that you may choose to share with your family on this very special day.
Christmas Tree Blessing God of all creation, we praise you for this tree which brings beauty and memories and the promise of life. May your blessing be upon all who gather around this tree, all who keep the Christmas festival by its lights. We wait for the coming of the Christ, the days of everlasting justice and of peace. You are our God, living and reigning, for ever and ever. Amen
