After monthly English Service, instead of tea time, we joined "Omochi-tsuki" (Japanese custom to make rice cake at the end of the year ), which was held by Men's club of our church.
The members of Praise Fellowship also hit and pounded steamed rice into Omochi.
 As soon as it was made, we put "Tare(sugar and soysauce)" to it, covered it with seaweed and ate it which was still very soft and warm .  
What a good cake it was! 
We hope it will be very joyful and precious memory in Japan.

After Christmas Sunday Service, we had a small Christmas Party in our church.  
A lot of sisters and brothers (including pastors) prepared lunch and we could enjoyed many delicious dishes!
Hearing the Christmas songs by children, we had very good Christmas time.

Today is the start of Advent, the beginning of the Christmas season.
During this Advent, let’s expect the coming of our savior with all of our hearts.
Outside church, Japanese society became very busy.  But we Christian don’t lose real peace in our mind because of hard schedule.

 
Today’s verse: Luke1:26-38
There are three keys for real blessing from God.

1. We really want to know Jesus Christ was born to this world as a savior.

2. We need to prepare ourselves so that we can receive the grace from God at this Christmas time.  Let’s make your faith work and get into action.

3. It is important to receive whole God’s work and believe his unlimited power.
  Nothing is impossible with God.

Christmas is the best time to witness Jesus Christ.  Let’s invite people around you to the Christmas meeting and church service.
