Print of Tenth Presbyterian at Christmas


Special Edition Print:

Tenth Presbyterian in Philadelphia at Christmas. 

The story behind the print:
Thoughts on Glimpses of a Heavenly Home.

When I went to college, I left home. I tried to go to church on Sundays in school, but I went to a lot of “dead” and empty churches; Cold and chasing after a world that didn’t want them anyway. So I hopped between churches and after hearing of it for years, stumbled into Tenth.
Stepping in- it must have taken my breath away- I was so surprised-it was packed?! And people weren’t just mumbling the words of songs- they were belting the tunes in full confident joy. And the sermon didn’t sound like it was pandering to a crowd- it was strong instructing. There was reverence that I never had experienced before. As I peered around the furthest back column on the side of the church I distinctly remember thinking God was there.

 I scurried in and out of Tenth for a year or two, graduated college, got a job somewhere else, went to other churches and stopped trying not to talk to the other church-goers by arriving late and leaving immediately. When my husband and I got married and I returned to Philadelphia with him- we returned to Tenth.

I didn’t feel like Philadelphia was home- I struggled with feeling very out of place on a regular basis. But when I arrived on a Sunday morning at Tenth, I thought “Philadelphia may not feel like home, but Tenth. Tenth feels like home.”
Our first Christmas Eve service there we barely found a seat- and we smooshed in next to some friendly faces. And they told us that in previous years there used to be a line around the block.

Christmases at Tenth felt like Christmas I had dreamed of! They lit candles that lined the aisles and during silent night- all the lights go off and they sing out loudly “Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!! Christ the Savior is Born! Christ the Savior is born!”

Our minister, Dr. Goligher, mentioned in a sermon once that on Sundays we are joined by angels in our worship of God. He also preached a sermon on longing for a home that we don’t have yet. A longing for our heavenly home.

In a moment I felt I was given a glimpse at heaven. A glimpse of home- real home- a heavenly home.
