For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (NIV Bible Gateway)
Deb and I are blessed this Christmas. The two of us are constantly telling our family and local friends of the wonderful, intelligent, funny, and theologically astute people who inhabit this blog. You have given meaning to this new season of our lives. Thank you for giving us the gift of your thoughts and your lives. You are never, ever taken for granted.
When we return, we will begin an occasional series on stories from SGM. Some of these are stories that have not yet been told in public. They are disturbing. As SGM faces a looming lawsuit, we believe it is imperative that people, including the embarrassingly silent "Friends of CJ", understand precisely what was allegedly going on behind closed doors.
We will return on Wednesday. We hope you will enjoy these videos.
The first is a song that we heard spoken by Wade Burleson when we visited with him last year.
The second is a beautiful rendition of Once in Royal David's City performed at King's College in Cambridge.
Finally, I saw this first posted on Justin Taylor's blog . It is a humorous rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas by the University of Mobile. All science fiction fans should enjoy this.
Merry Christmas Y'All from Raleigh, NC
