Blessings Sunday

There are some traditions I really look forward to during the Christmas season, like the lighting of the Advent candles every Sunday. The other one is Blessings Sunday. This takes place on the first Sunday of the new year, with our entire congregation worshiping at one service. After our pastor delivers the message and blesses us, our family takes communion together and we are prayed over. What a wonderful way to begin a brand new year.
