The Tri-Fecta of Worship.
In order to get the Christmas Spirit and since our church has cancelled all services till New Years Day, I have taken it upon myself to push the envelope and go to three services in other churches. The Friday night sabbath kick-off is "The Inn At Bethlehem" at the 7th Day Adventist Church. Sat. night, it's a Contemporary Christian Music Explosion at the "Rock of Asheville Church". This will be followed by a Christmas morning mass at "Our Lady of the Parkway" Catholic church.
Now we already went to the greatest Christmas Extravaganza ever produced, "Christmas on the Mountain" at the Biltmore Baptist Church. This blend of George Lucas and the PTL Club can't be described. The angels with their 12 foot long robes traveling on tracks 20 feet above the audience reminded me of Circus-Circus in Vegas. The show at our little Nazarene Church was great. I knew we were in the south because it's the first time in 20 years that when I ran around the outside of the church dressed as an apostle I wasn't running through snow in flip-flops.
