  • The greatest gift for all

    If you’re like me, you think this is the best time of the year. After all Christmas is here. That means there will be gifts, and great food, Christmas music, gifts, visiting with family, gifts, Christmas movies, gifts, Christmas trees, gifts...Come on, we all know Christmas is special because of gifts. It’s the time of year when the toy companies bring out the best toys. But what is the best gift?

  • Rejoice: It's good for the soul

    During Advent, one of the first Christmas carols we sing at my church is “O Come O Come Emmanuel.”

    It’s a melancholy song of Israel’s lament, of their crying out to God for relief from bondage and slavery, begging God to come and free them.

    But then the chorus goes: “Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.”

    Rejoice — to feel and/or show great joy or delight.
