Christmas at the Vineyard

The lovely Robin and I were blessed to attend "Christmas at the Vineyard" Christmas Eve services twice this year, on Christmas Eve Eve with Robin's parents, and on Christmas Eve with our daughter, son-in-law (and his parents), and three of our five grandkids. Cincy Vineyard has been our church for four years now, and has blessed us immensely. We've watched the Christmas Eve services grow from five to six and become more traditional over the years while doing something new each year. This year the grandkids (and great-grandparents) enjoyed the "magic" glasses that produced candy canes at every point of light, and it was fun to sing with a decidedly more "twangy" carol sing than ever before (more highlights can be seen here). And, of course, the candlelight portion of the service is always beautiful and blessed. 
After each service, we enjoyed one of my favorite Christmas Eve traditions--taking boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts to people who are working on Christmas Eve (and Christmas Eve Eve). What a joy to surprise people like that, and we are blessed to be part of a church that makes it so easy to reach out to our neighbors. Merry Christmas, everyone!
