This last Sunday something BIG happened after worship - it was the Advent Workshop! I say BIG because it takes an incredible amount of work, time, and hands to pull it off every year. Work started at least six months ago. There is the fun job of cleaning out the Advent workshop closet every year to inventory the leftovers from the previous years, planning the meal, planning the crafts, recruiting the hands to staff each of the craft tables, purchasing the items needed for each craft, purchasing the food, setting up all of the craft tables, getting the food ready, clean up, oh yes clean up, and the hundred other jobs that I have failed to mention. It is no small task to pull this event off year after year. In fact, it has been on the "should we continue" list for more than one year in my ten years at First Cong. Is it worth the time and energy expended?
