Our prayerful and meditative reflection – A Christmas Carol … Keeping Christmas All The Year has been created and will be offered by Andy Crosland – retired after working 37 years as a professor and administrator at the University of South Carolina Upstate and currently enrolled as part of a spiritual direction program with the Haden Institute in North Carolina.

Focusing on A Christmas Carol – by Charles Dickens – we will hear and experience the story of a turning, a salvation, a new beginning.  Scrooge shows us not only what we should be, but also how to make the transition … even if it is too much for all of us to do, in one night!!!

This timeless story is full of creative and spirit-filled reflections for sharing, not only during the Christmas season, but throughout the year and always.  We hope you will be with us as we contemplate renewing ourselves in the New Year - 2015.

Perhaps you will consider this extraordinary time as a gift given … to yourself, a family member or a special friend.  A portion of the offering collected has been designated for SPARTANBURG SHARES – a program which loans medical equipment, at no cost, to those in need.
