Garden Center Visit For December

Scene from Garden Center Visit For December.

Fr. Andrew who has been bringing his special book about the life of St. Nicholas every year, brought it last night for the 18th time. With so many good stories to choose from, Fr. Andrew decided to start our visit with one story and end it with another. He then asked the residents which story they wanted to hear. The first was how St. Nicholas secretly and during the night, put gold coins in socks for three maidens so their father would not have to sell them into slavery.

Our second story was about when all the bishops were gathered together in Nicaea to decide the future of the church. During one of the long speeches, St. Nicholas fell asleep. As he slept, he heard voices calling his name, and leaving his sleeping body, followed the voices. Traveling a long way, he came to a place in the middle of the sea. A mighty storm raged and the sailors cried to St. Nicholas for help. St. Nicholas then calmed the waves and the thunder and lightning stopped. The sailors thanked God and St. Nicholas blessed them and then he returned to Nicaea.
