From Ohio- (Really?)
Christmas creates a predicament for pastors when it falls on a Sunday, as it does this year. While some church members want to come together to celebrate the birth of Christ, others want to stay home with their families and reflect on the holiday in a quieter way. With that in mind, church leaders must decide whether to cancel Christmas Sunday services, but for many local pastors, the decision was easy.
“The board and I talked about it, but we all came to the conclusion pretty quickly. We’re having a service on Christmas,” said Pastor Candy Seaman, of Clyde Christian Church. “I totally understand if families with little kids choose not to come.”
Clyde Christian Church will host a Christmas Eve candlelight service and a Christmas morning service, so Seaman will be up late on Christmas Eve and then up early to deliver a message on Christmas.
“It will be wonderful,” she said.
