Snow on Sunday

Our part of the greenest state in the land of the free could get snow on Sunday. Here is the forecast for Elizabethton:

Windy with rain and snow showers. Highs in the low 40s and lows in the low 20s.

Rainy Sunday morning then much cooler with snow possibly for our annual Christmas dinner. I have to get used to folks freaking out about snow here. We are going to have our Christmas dinner regardless.

So put on your rubbers and fuzzy hats because we are going to celebrate the winter solstice in style.

All your favorite mythological characters of the season will be on hand: Santa, Baby Jesus, the little drummer boy, the Grinch, and Mr. Snow Miser.

Perhaps even the wise women from the east will visit Herod.

You can check out some pics of last year's show and watch the show on your windows media player. It could take a couple minutes to load. Don't forget to turn up the volume.

This year we will tell the Christmas story through the magical high tech video aid of candles.

Every kid fresh from the womb through the fifth grade will receive her or his own Family Story Bible plus other treats from Santa's bag.

Here some pics from last year's Christmas dinner

Plus a little cheer from the pastor and clerk of session at First Pres.

Finally, click here to hear the Drifters with animation from Joshua Held.

That is enough Christmas for one night.

Hey, if you are in the neighborhood join us Sunday! First Presby, Rebecca will talk about the Winter Solstice at 9:45, worship will be a choir cantata at 11 am. Christmas dinner at 6 p.m. Bring a dish for every two folks.


  1. That would be nice. Snow in the mountains would cure a lot of NE Tennessee drought ills.

    By "Greenest" I assume you mean color wise?

    Unfortunately, we rank 42nd in the nation environmentally according to Forbes (credibility always in question).
    Well behind New Jersey, New York, and California.

    Sad, no?

  2. Yes, I meant color from Davy Crockett...

    "Up on a mountaintop in Tennessee,
    Greenest state in the land of the free..."
