As part of the Christmas Program at our little Columbiana United Methodist Church, we had a candlelighting.
A nearby suburb of Birmingham informed their churches that to hold candlelightings they needed to get a permit from the fire department and to have two firemen on duty at the church during the service. No such requirement in Columbiana, although we do have several volunteer firemen who are members of the church and there is a fire extinguisher readily available behind the pianist.
