St. Nicholas Day
today many people here in central & eastern europe celebrate St. Nicholas Day (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas#Saint_Nicholas_Day). and since we have St. Nick's cutest little helper we had to take pictures of her as such. and yes that is Zara up in the pulpit with me. She came up to help me with this morning's sermon which was about God's heart for those in need, which was exmplified in the real Saint Nicholas. the sermon was the call to action for Calvary Szeged for our first "Saint Nicholas Project". this year we are going to perpare Christmas presents for 60 mentally hanidcapped here in Szeged. we hope to bring some joy to their lives through these gift packages and to point their caretakers to the Babe of Bethlehem.
