A busy Christmastide...

Obviously, the Gottesdienst Online editors have been as busy as the rest of you during this run up to the Yule. But here's a couple of quick items:

* Don't forget to join in the all the Gottesdienst and Sabre of Boldness festivities in Fort Wayne next month.

* Don't forget that St. John's Day replaces the First Sunday after Christmas on Dec. 27.

* If you have a New Year's Eve service, consider using the propers for Jan 1, Name and Circumcision of our Lord. The traditional readings are wonderful with a one verse Gospel lesson.

* And finally, we bring you a Protestant miracle, courtesy of my wife's kitchen:

Advent Podcasts

Since no one has posted here for awhile, I'll throw this out: to listen to any number of 25 minute airings of "St. Paul's on the Air," a radio program discussing the particulars of the Sunday Gospels and church year, the most recent being the one for the Fourth Sunday in Advent, click here and then click on any of the Sundays listed.

Out of the Barn

The sleigh is loaded down, the reindeer are harnessed, and the bags of goodies are on their way: Gottesdienst is out of the barn, and coming to a mailbox near you. Ho, ho ho!

Unless, of course, you have not subscribed. To correct that error, click here, and Santa will be glad to drop by your house too.

Here's a recommendation: St. Nicholas' Day is December 6, so in honor of that, and as a treat to yourself (or a friend), as we suggested, click here.
