Terri Goldich won her election to the schoolboard by 30 votes!

The choir has begun to practice its Christmas music from a cantata called “The Mystery and the Majesty.”  One intriguing anthem refers to the birth of Jesus as “The Beautiful Impossible,” and has this interesting analogy, “Into our shadows, a star reaches out, to the mangers of our empty hearts.”    I like that picture of where Christ will be born….in the “mangers of our empty hearts.”
