Gift for the Savior. Christmas, 2016.
‘Just got back from the hustle and bustle of the mall on the afternoon of Christmas Eve. Of course, I wasn’t alone. Folks were running around for those few desired items that had not yet been purchased. The stores were busy, but I don’t mind the crowds; in fact, I rather like them—‘love the energy, the noise, and the people—just love the people.
As I strode through the mall and looked around, I wondered if anyone was shopping for Jesus.…Continue

Jesus and the military. Christmas, 2016
Found myself singing along to ‘Where are you Christmas?’ by Faith Hill the other day, a little melancholy about how different Christmas will be this year, with the kids not coming home. “…My world is changing - I'm rearranging;
does that mean Christmas changes too?” Oh I’m well aware my thoughts are nothing compared with what others are facing—first Christmas after the death of a spouse or parent, or loss of their beloved child… I have…

The sweetest story. Christmas, 2016
The day we celebrate our Lord's birth draws nigh . . .
Have you heard the sweet old story yet this Christmas season?
I shall never tire of it.
May your heart be renewed with joy!
Luke’s familiar rendering of the events-
And it came to pass in those days,
that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus
that all the world should be taxed.
(And this taxing was first made when

Of Shepherds and Sheep at Christmas. 2016.
Have you ever noticed that God seems to have been a little partial to shepherds? I guess it follows then that the Father thinks rather a lot of sheep as well! Would it surprise you to know that I saw shepherds driving flocks of mottle-coated sheep whilst in Israel? Quite a remarkable site actually.
The most glorious of the three yuletide visitations is to shepherds who are guarding their sheep on a rocky hillside one night outside of…Continue

God comes to the humble…another angelic visit at Christmas. Christmas, 2016.
Why Mary? Why Nazareth, and for that matter, why Joseph? Surely they were devoted to God, faithful and humble. It seems that the humble are most ready to hear from God. He could have used any means to communicate with Mary and Joseph, but God used angels to speak to the pair who would raise up the boy Jesus. Angels at Christmas? Why, of course!
