We got together with faith family to sing Christmas songs yesterday after church. It was enjoyable to get through six verses of some of these old faithful hymns.
We got to talking about songs we hear in public places. In years past secular Christmas and New Years songs by International artists like AABA blared over restaurant and shop speakers.
But this year we are noticing more American and traditional Christmas songs with lyrics that announce the birth of the Savior. What a blessing to be here to witness 'signs of the kingdom'.
We talked about even if the motivation is materialism, the sights and sounds of this season can still act as open doors and opportunities to explain to people the reason for the Christ of Christmas.
