On Saturday, we went through our fourth Christmas banquet at Sacandaga Bible Conference — part of an evening that included a free cantata, which attracted more than 300 guests.
It was a beautiful evening of celebrating the season, made even more beautiful because of the outstanding work that was done in decorating. Trees from my parents’ Christmas tree farm, burlap table runners, pine accents, red Christmas balls, and lanterns on every table. This picture doesn’t do it justice. I’m not sure the menu did, either.
