Well, the youth Christmas Eve service went well. I was way stressed, because they were typical adolescents: everything came together at the last moment. In the end, all I had to do was play organ and piano (thank God). I put Guido* up on the organ console with me and God gave me a calm spirit. I played pretty well. So: Christ was honored; the youth were enabled; I didn't embarrass myself. That's three for three for that service.
Morning worship with the big Christmas Eve sermon, Check. Youth service, Check. Now, all we've got is Methodist high mass tonight at 11:00 p.m. Soli Deo Gloria!
*Guido (named after Guido of Arezzo, of course) is my little stuffed monkey. He chitters when you squeeze him. I place him on the organ unobtrusively whenever I accompany a service, because every organ grinder needs a monkey.
