Monday, December 24, 2018:  Mark and Paula attended 7 pm Christmas services at the Park United Methodist Church.
The organist started playing at 6:30 pm, filling the church with haunting melodies of old Jerusalem and hope for the future.
The minister told the full-house crowd that there would be a "Men's Spontaneous Choir." 
He said it is a long-standing tradition, but church leadership has never heard of it!
The men stood up and sang What Child is This?  All this to the delight of the women in the audience.
You see just one-third of the church in the left photo.

The service included two stories, which stretched it out to 1-1/2 hours.  Parishioners loved it.
There were many displays of lights in Brainerd that night.

Quote of the day:    Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
