I have been contracting the orchestra for FUMC, Marshall, Tx for many years now and I always look forward to the Christmas program with the choir. The church was built in the mid-1800's and is located in downtown Marshall just on the edge of the square which now features an ice skating rink during the end of the year holidays. The square in which are located the old courthouse, shops, restaurants and old antique stores as well as newer banks and law offices is ablaze with holiday lights. Makes you feel as though you have been transported back in time to another century and a more simple and uncomplicated life.
