Scene from Garden Center Visit For December

Fr. Andrew started our visit with one of the many stories about St. Nicholas, "The Pawnbroker and the Greek". The pawnbroker loaned the Greek gold which was to be paid back in one month. Many months passed & the pawnbroker had to take the Greek to court, where the Greek insisted he did pay back his loan. The pawnbroker said to swear by St. Nicholas that the gold was returned. So the Greek told the pawnbroker to hold his staff so he could rise in hand and swear. Nothing happened to the Greek, so the pawnbroker figured he was telling the truth. But what the pawnbroker didn't know is that the Greek had put the gold in his staff. He took his staff back & walked out. Later he was crossing a bridge & collided with a cart & all the gold fell out of the staff & was returned to the pawnbroker.

Fr. Andrew said the true meaning of Christmas is that Jesus came into the world to save us and that He is with us!
