Next door to the historical area I just described sits the W. K. Gordon Museum, with lots of exhibits about Thurber and its coal mine and brick manufacture history. To learn more about it, and it’s many and varied activities, go to www.tarleton.edu/gordoncenter/.
But, back to this time of year. Many of our local churches, both in this county and in other counties, are holding live Nativity scenes, a tradition begun by St. Francis of Assisi, and last Thursday we visited Palo Pinto for its annual Frontier Christmas Celebration. You just can’t beat it.
Today we are traveling to St. John’s Episcopal Church in Fort Worth for the yearly Lessons and Carols. What a wonderful way to celebrate God’s Son coming to Earth so that we might be saved from all our sins!
Alleluia! Christ is born!
