Christmas Eve candle ceremony at Wheaton Bible Church
We sang "Away in the Manger" I used to sing this at the top of my lungs, all shrill and boyful each Christmas at Incarnation Catholic Parish when I was five years-old. This little girl (Kaitlyn, who apparently has a fan in Ozzy Osbourne?) in the video below gives it a shy, tremulating go in a modernized version mixed with the secular "Twinkle Twinkle." She gets the bigger picture. While I never took center stage as she has, with tremendous excitement and joy I lifted my voice. Whenever I hear the song now I find myself going back to 1971, the left aisle, two thirds back from the front.
My less pious greeting to you all at the end of this little Santa video.
