At Durham Parish, my lovely wife prepares and prints the service bulletin for the worship services. Usually it is a simple affair with more coordination, which she is very good at, than technical complication. The Christmas Eve service bulletin is another item all together. It is a booklet, which takes a bit of manipulation, which is where "yours truly" comes into the picture. Not that I am that technically savvy, just more so than the lovely and talented Mrs. DurhamParish.

The "Prayers of the People" that the Priest provided to her for inclusion in bulletin/booklet was a special one for the Christmas Eve service, not one found in the The Episcopal Church's Book of Common Prayer. One phrase in this series of requests to God is "for all who work or watch this night", including, among many other forms of toil, "for those who work in shelters, hotels, and other places of hospitality". Well, since I have the power of the word processor, I made that phrase "for those who work in shelters, hotels, hostels, and other places of hospitality".

It is my little personal "shout out" to the Lord for all of the people in the albergues along the Camino, as well as those places around the world where hostels provide a safe place for people to rest on Christmas Eve without paying a minor potentates ransom.

It'll slip by without the Priest even knowing it until it's too late (I'm doing the reading of the Prayers of the People Christmas Eve anyway). And before anyone realizes exactly what I've done, the assembled will say "Shine upon them and give them peace." And I will be happy.

And since I'm reading the Prayers of the People on Christmas morning, perhaps I'll be able to add the same.....
