Party On Garth!

Last night we had our College of Education Christmas Dinner Party.  I look forward to it every year.  It was, as usual held in the Capstone Hotel Ballroom.  The food is always tasty, as it was last night.  It is nice seeing your colleagues from work in a more relaxed situation.

We have a relatively new dean, and he wanted to build more espirit de corps in the College, so he suggested that we have a talent show after dinner.  One colleague did a notable job MCing the evening.  Another fellow was a well-practiced magician, who did a nice mini-show.

Note to magician:  I figured out the rope trick and the handcuffs, but it was good show anyway.

One of my long time friends had to fill in on the keyboard and did a marvelous job.  Another colleague, one of my favorites, debuted a super-hero movie starring himself.

Sister Maddy sang, and led us in a couple of songs.

The Dean ended the evening with poking a little fun at our southern, and his Jersey, accents.

It was a valiant try.  The goal was a worthy one.

As the old Indian on Little Big Man says, "Sometimes the magic works, and sometimes it doesn't".

I'll leave the call to you.

How do we build Christian relationships, Christian Fellowship.

Not sure it can be done with good intentions and gimmicks.  Maybe it has to be done in living out life together.  We live through the good and bad together, we celebrate when the occasion arises and we morun with them, when that occasion arises.

We worship together, we pray together, we spur one another to love and good deeds.

Ultimately G^d does His work, and it's not magic... but it's close.

Hope you have a great Christ-mass season.  Blessings,
