christmas-in-the-cityWhen the song of the angels is stilled,
When the star in the sky is gone,
When the kings and princes are home,
When the shepherds are back with their flock,

The work of Christmas begins:

To find the lost,
To heal the broken,
To feed the hungry,
To release the prisoner,
To rebuild the nations,
To bring peace among people,
To make music in the heart.

Merry Christmas to all.  Following our usual schedule, we are shutting down blogging for a few days.  May you have a blessed celebration of God’s presence amongst His people and silent nights of rest and recuperation so that you may be best prepared to take up the challenges of the work of Christmas.
