As you enjoy this evening with family and friends, I leave you with "A Big God For Little People - Seven Christmas Eve Meditations." It was written by John Piper in 1980, and I found it a great tool for focusing my thoughts on the significance of Christ's birth. Give it a read, and may God's grace dwell in you richly this Christmas.
I'm a follower of Christ, an heir of the Reformation, and a Baptist - in that order. My wife Heather and I have been married since 2005 and are the proud parents of a little girl. I work as an Aviation Technical Publications editor. From 2005 to 2009 I served as Minister to Youth at Hazelwood Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and I'm now actively pursuing church planting.
Soli Deo Gloria!
