Christmas Brunch…

Our ladies Bible Study had their annual Christmas Brunch and each individual group decorated their own tables.

 

There were traditional settings and

 

whimsical table settings.

 

 

This was our table. One of our leaders has this wonderful Goebel Nativity set. Each of us brought our own place setting for the table.  The Twelve Days of Christmas was the theme of our program and how it relates to Christ. I read this following paragraph on Christian History.net.

The “real” twelve days of Christmas are important not just as a way of thumbing our noses at secular ideas of the “Christmas season.” They are important because they give us a way of reflecting on what the Incarnation means in our lives. Christmas commemorates the most momentous event in human history—the entry of God into the world He made, in the form of a baby. The Logos through whom the worlds were made took up His dwelling among us in a tabernacle of flesh. One of the prayers for Christmas Day in the Catholic liturgy encapsulates what Christmas means for all believers: “O God, who marvelously created and yet more marvelously restored the dignity of human nature, grant that we may share the divinity of Him who humbled himself to share our humanity.” In Christ, our human nature was united to God, and when Christ enters our hearts, he brings us into that union.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Beautiful tables Ellen. I enjoy the idea of each table decorating their own table. We did that in our ladies bible study each week. .and it was marvellous to see the creativeness and beauty.

  2. The tables are each so interesting – what a lovely idea.
    The twelve days of Christmas are in important part of our Christian tradition and I always feel so sad when most of the world makes such a fuss in the lead-up to Christmas and then on the 26th drops everything, takes down the decorations and considers it all over. Really, it’s the beginning.

  3. I attended a ladies tea like this once and enjoyed going around to look at the different table centerpieces. People come up with such creative ideas!

  4. How nice. It looks like it was a festive meal with the best of reasons for celebrating. It’s fun to see how each table is so creative and so different. We are blessed to be individuals aren’t we? – each created to be different.

  5. Thanks Ellen for taking the pictures of the various tables. It was great just socializing with everyone. Thank you to all who helped make the table so beautiful and the food so delicious. May you have a Blessed Christmas with your family and friends.
