Christmas - great news!

As I write, the big news in the United States is a school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, a great tragedy. If it hadn't been for that, it would have been the inability of President Obama and the Republicans of the House of Representatives to reach some settlement, so as to avoid the "fiscal cliff," which will increase taxes on most of us, and cut parts of some government spending drastically and suddenly.

But these events, or whatever events will soon take their place, pale into insignificance beside the birth of Christ, God Himself, come to earth to live, die, and be resurrected as the perfect sacrifice for our sin. Here's a 5 minute, 37 second video, of a flash mob of excellent singers, presenting that Good News in a California mall in 2010. If you have never seen this, you should. If you have seen it, you should see it again!

Thanks for reading. Please watch.

We were just shown that very video in church yesterday morning.
