2020 In Review – Christ is Risen – Merry Christmas

Bringing Easter and Christmas together is something I like to do. They are a package, but our culture tends to treat them separately.  What I didn’t expect was that my 2015 Christmas musings would be the second most viewed post here in 2020. I’m not confused.
