J.B. Phillips, a famous translator of the Bible tells this story about the birth of Jesus:  “A senior angel is showing a very young angel around the splendors of the universe.  They view whirling galaxies and blazing suns, and then flit across the infinite distances of space until at last they enter one particular galaxy […]

Every once in a while you will see this description of Jesus on a Christmas card which is called “One Solitary Life,” which is written by an anonymous author: “He was born in an obscure village. He worked in a carpenter shop until he was about thirty. He then became an itinerant preacher. He never […]

In the last couple of years this poem  by Macrina Wiederkehr has become one of my                                     favorites called “Christmas Shopping.” O God of words, dear Word made flesh give birth to my thoughts, change them into words that will help me to Christmas up the lives of those I love, for I […]

I have been reading a very different kind of book about Jesus by Deepak Chopra who imagines Jesus joining Judas for a while with his band of zealots.  He also pictures Jesus slowly discovering God’s Spirit in himself: “Your heart is like this jug—fill it with the holy spirit and keep it inside yourself.  Then […]

Here is a nice, simple Christmas Blessing in a Christmas Card: In the stillness of a winter night God’s silence whispers “Peace”. May the promise of this sacred season settle in your soul and echo in your life.

Here is a nice Christmas card we received but you have to imagine the lovely calliagraphy with beautiful maroon words on a lovely gray background:   God’s light ENCIRCLE YOU, God’s love ENFOLD YOU, God’s peace ENCOURAGE YOU, God’s presence ENRICH YOU at Christmas and always. (And may this blessing be yours as well.) P.S.  […]

Today is my birthday and I received this fabulous card called OVERFLOW: “God has more for you than your faith could ever imagine and more than your heart could ever hold. In the coming year, there will be more to embrace, more to grow in, and more to enjoy from the river of His goodness […]

I thought the pageant was wonderful and got hold of a script so I could quote you some of the really good lines: Mary:  When Gabriel told me whose mother I’d be, I couldn’t believe it.  Had God chosen me? But God knew my heart, and he knew I’d agree. My message is trusting in […]

The choir has been practicing a special anthem for Christmas which is called The Beautiful Impossible—what a great two word description of the birth of Jesus as the Son of God—The Beautiful Impossible! There is one verse in particular I like: “Into our silence, God’s music resounds. Into our shadows, a star reaches out. To […]

This is a long poem but well worth your reading.  It is called “I can’t Marry Her Now” by J. Frank Bartleson. “We had planned for so long a time. She was so young and lovely, But now she is with child, And it is not mine! I asked, “Whose is it?” She answered, “It […]
