The sight of several church leaders in their traditional tribal garb was delightful, and reminded us once again that we're in a foreign land, and Christmas this year wouldn't be the same. There're two Christmas trees on stage and attempts at wreaths and mistletoe for decorations. There're several visiting pastors on stage, and one of them delivered the sermon. Someone was kind enough to ask to sit next to us, and in whispers, and at appropriate junctures, interpreted the sermon and explained the proceedings. This fine gesture goes a long way to help us enjoy the spirit of the season.
