Next Sunday is the last Sunday of Advent

People, Look East!

People, look east. The time is near 
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the guest, is on the way.

Furrows, be glad. Though earth is bare,
One more seed is planted there:
Give up your strength the seed to nourish,
That in course the flower may flourish.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the rose, is on the way.

Birds, though you long have ceased to build,
Guard the nest that must be filled.
Even the hour when wings are frozen
God for fledging time has chosen.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the bird, is on the way.

Stars, keep the watch. When night is dim
One more light the bowl shall brim,
Shining beyond the frosty weather,
Bright as sun and moon together.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the star, is on the way.

Angels, announce with shouts of mirth
Christ who brings new life to earth.
Set every peak and valley humming
With the word, the Lord is coming.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the Lord, is on the way.

"People, Look East" was written by Eleanor Farjeon (1881-1965) and was first published as "Carol of Advent" in Part 3 of "Modern Texts Written for or Adapted to Traditional Tunes" in The Oxford Book of Carols, 1928. Farjeon, a native of London, was a devout Catholic who viewed her faith as "a progression toward which her spiritual life moved rather than a conversion experience."  She achieved acclaim as an author of children's nursery rhymes and singing games, and is best remembered for her poem "Morning Has Broken."

“Dad’s Christmas Miracle” Playing at Mahoney State Park


KBC Productions is partnering with Eugene T. Mahoney State Park for its 19th winter theater season with the winter production of “Dad’s Christmas Miracle”."  Written by Pat Cook, this funny and heart-warming story revolves around Connor Murphy (Dustin Reckling Louisville) who wants a go-cart for Christmas.  He and his pals, Tater (Peter Reckling Louisville) and Neil (Matt Rothgeb, Omaha) try to get to the end of the school semester being good boys in hopes of getting what they want for Christmas.  However, report cards and the annual Christmas Pageant stand in their way.  

Hysterical situations abound in this loving memory of Yuletide charm back when if you had a dollar it was more money than you knew what to do with; if you had an hour to play, it seemed forever, and the best time in the whole world had to be Christmas. Artistic Director Kevin Colbert says, “This is great fun for the whole family!”  

Other cast members include: Doug Rothgeb, (Omaha), Dave and Hope Hibler, Keylee Ezell, (Manley), Andrew DeBrie, Emma Gauthier and Brenda Jones (Louisville).  The production runs December 16, 17, 18, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30.  Friday and Saturday shows are at 7:30PM and Sundays are at 2PM.  Ticket prices are $10 for Adults and $8 for Children 12 and under.  For reservations call the park at 402-944-2523 Ext. 7122.
