The Rev. Dr. Jo Hudson

Senior Pastor Jo Hudson reports on the Cathedral of Hope’s website that for the first time in its 41-year history, COH will host a Children’s Christmas Pageant as part of its 11 a.m. service this coming Sunday:

Regardless of whether you come for the 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. worship, I think it is important to mark this milestone in the life of our church. Many people who are not familiar with our church would never believe that a church filled primarily with same-gender couples would have any children at all. But this Sunday when we gather at 11:00 a. m., our children will fill the chancel area of the church. They will sing the songs of Christmas and most of them can tell you all the differences between Luke’s Christmas Story and Matthew’s Christmas Story—something many adults cannot even do.

Who would have thought that a “gay” church would ever have enough children to have a Children’s Christmas Pageant? Well, interestingly enough . . . God would have thought it, and God continues to dream great dreams for our church. I hope to see you Sunday as the dream comes to life through our children.
