Happy Christmas! Check out this brief history of St. Nicholas. I really enjoyed reading it and think you will, too.

I hope your Advent has been more worshipful than ever before, culminating in celebrating the Nativity of our Lord tonight or tomorrow with your church family or with your family's church family. I am so excited about our Christmas Eve services tonight! Our band consists of piano, acoustic guitar, percussion, banjo, mountain dulcimer, violin. And I get to sing beside my wife. Most importantly, I know my pastor will be preaching the Gospel - the truth of God entering our mess and cleaning us. Melissa will be singing Andrew Peterson's song about Mary's messy delivery, "Labor of Love," and I will be introducing a new song, "Awaker of My Soul." I pray the Holy Spirit will awaken souls tonight.

I'm checking out for the next week or so, chillaxing at the family's in Chicagoland. Rest, do nothing, build relationships, reminisce, reform worship. Until next year, peace.
