Not only is the inside decorated for Christmas when you visit Longwood Gardens in December, but so is the outside.


So much detail.  Yet so worth it.


Lesson for church: Are we spending all of our efforts for the inside?  The community within?  Or are we focused outward too – reaching out to those who are not a part of us yet?  The danger, of course, is that if others join us, they may change us.  Scary.  Yet, this is exactly what Jesus teaches us.
