Now, after about many years without it (at least in adult portrayals), I am longing for the Story of the Christ-child again.
A couple of years ago, I remarked to a music minister that the name “Jesus” was making its way back into some “praise and worship” choruses; I was glad. I was told that everything seems to be cyclical.
Well, recycle the Christmas story to me! I well repent of the time I thought it was passé! (I won’t even get bent out of shape if the Magi come to the manger!) “Tell Me the Story of Jesus, write on my heart every word; tell me the story most precious, sweetest that ever was heard. Tell how the angels in chorus, Sang as they welcomed His birth, Glory to God in the highest, Peace and good tidings to earth.” (Fanny Crosby)
