Monday, Dec. 27, is the deadline for paying reser- vations for a New Year's Party Dec. 31 in the Old Paris Season Continued from Pg. 3 Christmas morning Mass, the tale is told of the shepherds. Later in the day, all this lovely story-telling gives way to John's Gospel where the evangelist tries valiantly to grasp the larger meaning: "In the beginning was the Word." EACH OF us hears a bit of this: And it is enough for the day. But that is exactly why Christmas makes itself into a season. We need time to savor what we have believed, to see it from some other sides, to find, with each" Christ- mastime, ourselves within it. On the Sunday after Christmas, Dec 26 this year, we tell of the child found in the temple. On Dec. 28, the story is back to Bethlehem to remember Herod's slaughter of the children. OUR NEW Year's Day is an ancient feast called "Mary, Mother of God." Then we tell how .Mary kept all these things in her heart and treasured them. In the United States, Epiphany is celebrated on the next Sunday. We know what story to expect, the Magi, but we also hear hints of what will be told more fully in a week, Jesus' baptism by John. In 1983, we have the bap- tism followed Jan. 16 by another epiphany story, the water made into wine at Cana. AN ANCIENT chant bound all these epiphany stories together: "Today the bridegroom claims his bride, the church, since Christ has washed her sins away in Jordan's water; the Magi hasten with their gifts to the royal wedding; and the wedding guests rejoice, for Christ has changed water into wine!" Did someone get the stories mixed up? Or is this what we really mean by epiphany? There is no logic, no pretense at history or biography in all this season. Rather, at the time of the winter solstice, when the going can be grim, the church gathers us around a great story of God-with-us, Em- manuel. The story needs many days to unfold. It is anything but sentiment. ADVENT'S consciousness Room, Sam Peck Hotel, Capitol and Gaines Street, at 7:30 P.M. There will be a dinner and dance with a $15 per person cost.

It is a poor birth among animals made known to bottom-ranked shepherds. John tells us from the start: "The world did not know who he was." Old Simeon warns the parents of a soul-piercing sword and infants and tod- dlers pay with their lives in sweet Bethlehem. It was no easy birth. The many day's, of the Christmas festival would have us face how Herod-like is our world, how hard it is to admit a messiah who belongs to the poor and the oppressed. YET FROM Christmas to Epiphany and beyond, we learn how to praise and give thanks for such a savior. We need to give ourselves the time: to keep the tree and its story-telling decorations; to read over and over the early chapters of Matthew and Luke and the prologue to John's Gospel; to sing carols and Christmas hymns; to prolong the exchange of gifts by giving to those around us our time (for once-a-year adventures and just for listening so we get to know spouses and children again). Christmas just begins Dec. 25!
