A Blessed Christmas!

A couple of years ago I did a photoshoot via video conference for Melissa Thomsen, who was working on an Advent series, so it was a delight to finally meet her in person at the Christian Worldview Film Festival with one of the paintings she did!

It's quite a remarkable story found in Luke 2:8-20. The Great King of Heaven is born on earth, and the announcement is made to livestock managers who live outdoors. He was born in a manger, a feeding trough for cows, so that no one can say He doesn't understand their poverty. 

It was pretty easy for me to imagine seeing those angels, because I was able to draw from Joyce's wonderful piece, "The Shepherd's Daughter," which she performed in the Shepherd's Cave in Bethlehem:

Joyce and I are in charge of our Christmas Eve service. We're excited about doing a readers theatre performance with folks from our church of The Unlikely Wise Man. I'll play Robert Redfern, the unlikely Wise Man, who is a Scrooge-like character. Joyce will play the six-year-old Toddle. 

It will be at 7 p.m. Eastern, live and over video conference only. Click here for video conference link. If you're in the area it will be at the Sonesta Hotel, 66 Hale Ave, White Plains, NY 10601.

You can hear the professional recording we did two years ago for free for a limited time.
