Red Oak NewsBy Mary Howelett

In all of my many church years I have never ever heard anything about this before. Did you know this?

The partridge in the pear tree is Jesus Christ.

Two turtle doves are the Old and New Testaments.

Three French hens stand for Faith, Hope, and Love.

The four calling birds are the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law-the first five books of the Old Testament. The six geese a-laying stand for the six days of creation.

Seven swans a-swimming represent the seven-fold gifts of the Holy Spirit-Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, Mercy.

The eight maids a-milking are the eight beatitudes. Nine ladies dancing are the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit-Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.

The 10 lords a-leaping are the 10 commandments.

The 11 pipers piping stand for the 11 faithful disciples.

The 12 drummers drumming symbolizes the 12 points of belief in the Apostles’ Creed.

According to www.carols.org.uk The Twelve Days of Christmas (The 12 Days of Christmas) start with Christmas Day and finish with the eve of Epiphany on Jan. 5. The Twelve Days of Christmas dates back to English origins in the 16th century although the music is reputed to be French. The first publication date for The Twelve Days of Christmas (The 12 Days of Christmas) was 1780.

Each of the The Twelve Days of Christmas has a religious significance and are symbolized following the lyrics of The Twelve Days of Christmas.

The Red Oak Presbyterian Church has no regular minister, not for many years. Each worship leader that has spoken or sang at Red Oak brings their own unique talents and gifts in being a representative of our resurrected Savior. Today was no exception as Larry Downing and his group called “Grounded” gave us wonderful song and testimony. This group consists of Larry’s sister and brother-in-law, Judy and Bob Dunseith, and Jerry McKibben. Larry is the longtime emcee of the Brown County Singing Convention. This is a long running program of area local talents meeting together once a month in different area churches. Each month a roll-call is taken of the audience as to what church they represent. The last one I attended had 14 different churches represented. Come on out and see what the singing in Brown County is all about.

Larry’s group “Grounded” will be back to Red Oak in February.

In January, the group representing the Burbage family called “Back to the Cross” will be the special guest at the Ripley Nazarene Church, 7 p.m. Jan. 27.

Please pray blessings for your neighbor you have no idea what that prayer could mean for the both of you.
