Join us one more time by the fire as Matt reads the greatest Christmas story ever told!
This time, it comes straight from the Big Book, the Bible, Luke 2:1-19. Grab a warm drink, a cozy blankie and your loved ones and gather round to hear about the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
In and amongst all the hoopla for the holidays, we sometimes forget to simply be thankful for the small things.
This week Brandy reads “Little Piccola,” a short story about a little girl who’s been impoverished her whole life, until one Christmas morning when she wakes up to find the greatest gift she could have ever hoped for!
In our second Christmas story for 2018, Matt reads O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi.”
It’s a simple little tale of a young couple struggling to make ends meet, but who are determined to give the other a nice gift for Christmas. Each of their gifts comes at a great sacrifice, which often, the best gifts do.
This story was written in 1905 so the language is a bit “old-timey” but it’s a Christmas classic that all should hear.
This holiday season we’re going to do things a little bit differently than we normally do. Each week this month we’re going to settle into your earbuds and read you a Christmas story. It sounds a little awkward, but I think it’ll be fun!
To kick it off, we’re starting with a little ditty by Leo Tolstoy called “Papa Panov.” It’s a short tale of a shoemaker who learns a valuable lesson about what it means to see Jesus.
Turn on your Christmas lights, grab a warm drink and a cozy blanket and sit down for a little Christmas story.
